When scheduling a meeting, send an invite to the entire Channel instead of Inviting each member manually.
Currently, when you create a new meeting you select the Channel to meet in and then have to type in each member to invite. I would like to just invite the entire Channel (so I don't have to type each member's name in) and each member get an outlook notification.
Use the Outlook Webmail to select the team as Invitees and the Channel as the location or resource. The Outlook client on the MAC allows you to select the team but not allowing see the channel. Maybe its an Admin install permissions issue.
Need urgently, Need to be able to invite by distribution lists or contact groups.

Please add this feature to Microsoft Teams! I have a team with 1000 members and I want to make sure people block their calendars for my meetings. Even though it is a large audience, I typically get 160 participants joining monthly (well below the limit of MS Teams conference), but only when they received the invite in their Outlook calendars. After we moved into MS teams, I cannot put the meeting automatically in their calendars, people forget that is there, and my attendance has dropped to 20+ people per month. Outlook is the most popular tool for meetings, so I'm baffled as to why this feature does not exist with another Microsoft product (MS Teams). Need your help. Please implement it.
This is much needed. When a meeting is created in a channel, the only advice that the meeting has been scheduled is that there is a note in conversation - easily missed.
I have to advise people to add the Channel to meet in but also to individually invite all the team members which kind of defeats the purpose.
Perhaps, when the Team meeting is created, the list of names of members of the team could populate the 'Invite People' area. The user could then delete any that aren't required to attend or add extra invitees as well.
Everyone would then receive an email that the meeting was on.
If someone didn't want to receive these emails, it could be a setting in notifications
IMHO this is a very helpful opportunity especially when there are a lot of persons in your team
