This is needed for business as well. Seems silly that is available for public channels but not private. I would think that this would be an easy fix.
With all due respect, can't believe this requires a vote. It is something that needs to be a functioning feature. It also appears that students are able to record the meeting in a private channel, but teachers cannot?
Would also be really useful to have the option of making a channel private or public instead of having to delete a channel and starting again.

This is a must-have feature. It would reduce the amount of Teams required in our organisation by at least 50%!

Yes, please add ability to schedule meeting in private channels. This seems so obvious.
If meetings can be scheduled they can be recorded. At the moment the absence of both features are major flaws for those trying to use Teams in schools.
Yes please. It is needed for teachers

100% needed in business as well. I have multiple branches and multiple SBU's in each branch and I need to be able to house all meetings in each channel under the main team type.

CNS Weekly Planning
They all need to be private, all need to be housed under the Operations otherwise I will end up with 300 different teams
100% needed in Schools where the teacher needs to be able to decide when pupils can enter. Child Protection concerns with possibility of unwanted 1-2-1 video calls as well as unmonitored video chat of pupils on school liscensed product.
I would like to schedule a meeting on the private channel. The calendar/schedule meeting option only allows meetings in open or general channels. Could you please provide some guidance.
This is needed to allow prerecordings without students accessing it.
This is a much needed feature for educators.
Please add this recording feature for private channels. Thanks.
Hello. I am on the same page. For safeguarding reasons, when I split students into groups, I would like to be able to record their interactions when I am not in the channel with them. Can this please be updated as soon as possible. Also, I post the video of their lesson which it would be beneficial if it were recorded.
Being able to schedule "private channel" meetings in the calendar would be an important add-on.
Thanks, Is is possible to "Start" a new meeting in a private channel, though...
Please enable this feature, as an international school with students who have returned to their home countries outside our times zone, this feature is very useful for on-line learning in this difficult times. We need to record the class in a private channel.
I need to meet with subgroups of students, such as those with particular requirements, and to do so separately from other students. It would be much easier to just schedule a meeting with that group rather than invite each one separately. Thank you!
Any update on this feature?
