Forward or Sync Outlook Meeting Invites to a MS Teams Channel Calendar
The new MS Teams Calendar feature for Channels is really nice. However, it would be nice if we can forward or sync meeting invites that are already on our Outlook calendars into an MS Teams Channel specific calendar.

The inverse is also valid. We have a need to synchronise MS teams channel meetings with the team member's outlook calendars without having to specify each team member in the MS teams meeting invitation (currently the case). I have multiple teams, some exceeding 50 people, and I am trying to keep all meeting admin minimized and 'on platform' but many people still rely on the their calendar views in Outlook to plan their days and so miss out on the Teams meetings which dont sync to outlook
Yes please! We don't even have the new Channel Calendar yet and I know I will need something like this.
I manage someone else's calendar. From this person's calendar, there is a meeting series I want a MS Teams team members to be aware of: they participate in the collecting data for the meeting materials, but don't attend the meeting itself.
Therefore they don't get invited to the meeting, but they need to know when each event in the series is happening in order to provide their data in a timely manner.
Although I can create a calendar for the team in MS Teams in a number of ways, I have to manually enter in the MS Teams team Cal the dates and times of each events existing in Outlook to begin with, but then again manually modify the events' timing to match modifications in Outlook.
So much wasted time in duplicating events, when all I would have to do would be to invite the MS Teams calendar to the main event in Outlook for everything to sync in one simple step!
