Cette fonctionnalité est importante pour une utilisation professionnelle, donc pas que dans le privé.
Merci de mettre en place cette fonctionnalité très pratique également pour les canaux privés.

Very, very important change!!! And not only for schools.
Commenting to support the prioritisation of this feature.
I hope this comes out soon! I just created private channels for each of my reading groups for my 2nd grade class. It would be great to have the ability to easily invite each channel to their specific reading group time. I don't want to invite the whole class to each reading group meeting as I know they will get confused on when they need to come. I was disappointed to find out that I couldn't invite just that group to a meeting.
In schools, we are increasingly needing this function to schedule meetings across classes/year-levels/sub-schools, etc that typically wouldn't normally need a full team.
And, we need to use the scheduling function to ensure the lobby and presenter/attendee permissions are put in place well ahead of the meeting.
Unfortunately at the moment, we can either:
a) create new Teams for each adhoc scheduled meeting (very messy), or
b) use a "whole of school team" with adhoc public channels, but confuse all of the students and teachers in the school with notifications of meetings they are going on, but not needed at. [our current approach].
Please implement this function swiftly!
Whilst there are work-arounds, it would be great if this was actioned!!
Where is this feature?

Why is this not yet available? Proposed in Nov-2019, under review Apr-2020. We are in Jul-2021, and still nothing. This feature is needed for all MS Teams users, not just universities.

This really is a crucial requirement, guys, for schools. We really do need this ability.
How is this still not possible? Surely it is an easy change and why would you not include this functionality?! It is so frustrating when trying to schedule meetings with students and having to type every single one of their names in to ensure they get the invite. (my school does not give us access to create mailing lists so I can't do it that way).
Unfortunately there is no feedback from the microsoft team.
Is there any other platform where we are listened to.
I think the problem with host a meeting in private channels is related to calendars in private channels and planner tasks in private channels.
I hope there is a solution for all them.
It would be a big step for us. I would even say it doubles usability and productivity
Please also vote for this idea:
Channel Calender in a private channel:
Create Planner tabs within Private Channels:

Any updates? This is a needed feature for all of us
Without this feature you are forced to create a new Team instead of using Private channels.
The other option is schedule meeting in a different calendar asking users to manually go to the private channel and join a meet now.
Please, add a feature to be able to schedule meetings in a private channel.
La seule chose que j'aie à dire à ce sujet c'est que je ne comprends pas comment Microsoft a pu ne pas implémenter cette fonction dans les canaux privés.
Il n'y a rien à réfléchir : avoir un canal privé avec 10 personnes et être contraint d'inviter les participants un à un toutes les semaines est inacceptable.
De plus, les canaux privés étant... privés, les réunions qu'on planifie avec eux le sont peut-être aussi. Les équipes n'ont peut-être pas à savoir quand la direction se réunit, ni qui participe.
Une autre question récurrente n'est toujours pas résolue : modifier la confidentialité d'un canal.
Il y a urgence, nous sommes des milliers à perdre du temps et à demander ces correctifs, et nous ne sommes que l'infime partie des utilisateurs qui prennent le temps de vous faire connaître nos besoins.
This should be a basic feature set of Teams...
Would really love to be able to schedule meetings in private channels!
I've found that not everyone joins with the "meet now" option and it is confusing to have a separate calendar invite.
Please add the ability to schedule meetings in private channels!!!! As soon as possible. It is a feature we need.

This is a must-have feature since it is important to schedule meetings for a part of a team in private channels.
An example, as I am a teacher, I use private channels to have students work in small groups and then groups present to other their work.
So I need to schedule meetings either in general channel and in private channels
Please make this feature available
