Schedule a Meeting within Chat
Chat is our natural tool for interaction between team members.
I frequently want to video chat with one or more team members where it would be proper to have the information persist within the chat channel, but I want to schedule the video chat for a later time. Also, it would be nice to have immediate access to the calendars of fellow chat partners to get a sense of what they are doing and when they might be available. I don't want to blindly start a video, audio or even text chat when it may be a distraction. The availability / status indicator is helpful, but it would be really advantageous to be able to click on a user and bring up a view that shows their calendar.

To add to Frans' comment: Add Scheduling Assistant functionality too!

I came back to this forum exactly for this request.
One should be able to schedule a meeting from a chat, and also from a channel I think.
Now you either have to side step to diary, schedule a meeting, select all the participants you already had in the chat, or do it from Outlook.
Life would be so much easier if you can *schedule* a meeting, that already has the chat topic title, and participants as suggestions filled in.
