Creating and using the Channel Calendar App
Why use it?
The Channel Calendar App is a new way of organizing your team within Microsoft Teams. Once the Channel Calendar App has been added to a Team’s Channel, your group can organize scheduled meetings that Channel participants can join directly from the Channel. This way, conversation about the meeting, meeting notes, any documents shared, and the meeting information will all be contained in a relevant area.
The app can be added multiple times to the same Channel or on different Channels for the Team. When meetings are added, they also show up in that Channel’s messages. Anyone in your organization who has access to the Channel can add meetings, making it a good way to schedule group sessions and optional events.
The Channel Calendar meeting is flexible enough to allow individuals, Microsoft 365 Groups, or distribution groups as attendees. Additionally, Team members that have access to the Channel can opt-in to the meeting even if they are not one of the attendees listed by the meeting creator.
