Put Teams Meetings on Channel Members' Calendars
A majority of our staff doesn't have access to email; only Teams. This presents a problem when there is a meeting scheduled in the Channel of a Team with 400+ people.
The users don't receive an invite to add the meeting to their calendar because they don't have access to email, so it would be great if there was some passive way to set a reminder or note to a user's Meetings tab that says there's a meeting happening they might need to be a part of... or a default notification in everyone's Activity tab when the meeting is 15, 10, and 5 mins from starting... or the ability for the Meeting creator to have notification options for the meeting to the members of the Channel the meeting is happening on.
I've almost the same feature request: When I made in Teams-calendar a meeting to my Teams-channel, I want to see the possibilities when everyone is free of user the scheduler-assistant. I don’t want to copy the email addresses from my team.

I agree that it was a little annoying to get emails for everything, but a Team meeting should definitely appear in the Outlook calendar & Team calendar for every member of the Team. Lots of our people are missing meetings because this isn't happening.

Even if Team members have Exchange accounts, invitations are not generated unless the individual is added as a specific participant. I know people found the previous approach (everyone in the Team got invited & had a meeting on their calendar) confusing. But I find the approach where channel meetings don't show up in my calendar confusing *and* I miss meetings. Having some sort of notification about channel meetings would give some indication that a meeting is occurring, although I would *far* prefer the meetings just show up on my calendar.
