Easy, streamlined, way to invite all of the team to a meeting
Please design an easy, streamlined way to invite the whole team to a meeting and not have to invite them individually or in a workaround way such as creating meetings in Teams with no users. This could be something like an everyone button in Outlook to add all team members, or when inviting in teams adding an everyone button and it sends all members an invite. This is being requested through the Tech Community

Also this is key to be able to use Scheduling Assistant to find the right time for this meeting in the first place!
please add this feature as a priority.
It's cumbersome, time wasting and not logical having to add individuals each time we are setting up meetings.
I've also spent a long time trying workarounds suggested by other users, to no avail.
Its been several years since the community requested this feature. When you have a lot of people to invite to a meeting this is a very very tedious job. I feel that I lose time from my life.
I'd recommend to add a "Schedule meeting" button on the bottom of the team's chat, as it is there for individual chats already.

@MicrosoftTeams, this would be a major plus to a fairly decent tool. Inviting entire teams to a meeting would be a home run for you and for us!
I have to schedule meetings that involves people from different departments or Teams, that means the people is not part of a single team and I have to add them manually every time. And It's not possible to get the invited list from a previous meeting and copy and paste to the new one. How is this possible? manually adding 50 people each time. Really this is not user friendly. Please add the functionality
I'm completely flabbergasted that we can't do this in Teams right now!
Wow - I can't believe it's really an issue and not my lack of knowledge. Seriously have to individually add each person. Ugh.
Agreed. This is such a pain with large teams. I need a way to include all participants easily. Why can't you add a team or private channel. Contact Groups you set up don't work. Not even tags work.

By not including this feature you are driving customers to other platforms. Please behave like customer-oriented corporation (oxymoron?) and react quickly to fix this.

are you freaking serious? I have a company with 150K PEOPLE. ADD the ******* functionality to copy and paste email addresses to the invite list!!!!!! Who designs this ****???
IF there is a way yo invite a whole team to a meeting it is not intuitive. If there is not a way- what else could you possibly be working on that is more important?
Yep - why can't we @TeamName to add everyone just like in a new channel comment.
Please find a way to add this feature.

Hating microsoft products is made easier by stupid apps like Teams. What? You want me to type all the email addresses manually? Why would anyone design a meeting scheduler that is broken from conception by lack of fundamental functionality?
And we should be able to invite
by SELECTING SEVERAL E-MAIL ADDRESSES (e.g. from Outlook)
separated by commas or semicolons,
and COPY-PASTE into the recipients field of the Teams meeting.
And that would also be useful, if we could
COPY A MEETING WITH ALL ITS PARTICIPANTS,
and then GIVE A NEW NAME AND DATE-TIME to it.

We have a constantly growing team, so this is something that would add a lot of value for Teams meetings for us.

Our teachers have classes/groups upward of 200 students.
Every time they want to organize a class event in Teams, they have to copy paste the student list from a .txt document to make sure everyone gets an invite!
Even under the current Corona situation, many teachers are ready to dump Teams ASAP because they get frustrated by extra steps like this.
I cannot believe it - all the time to add members to a team and you cannot invite a team to a meeting. A usable feature would have also been the ability to take a distribution list from office 365 - as this is typically your team and create a team from there. Epic fail Microsoft
Definitely. I thought the whole purpose of scheduling a meeting using a team was that they'd all be invited.
