This is very much needed to ensure effective communication with the right people - I need the feature almost every day! Thanks.
mind-boggling .. would love to know the dev's reason for blocking calendar for private channels

Yes. I also think it is a must have. I do not get the functional rational behind current implementation :S.

what is the point to enable this for public channels and disable for private ones.. this a 'must have' one.
This has also been suggested here https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/38523142-support-to-host-a-meeting-in-a-private-channel
Yes please! This is something that we really need.
please build this feature in. It's sorely need and addresses a lot of issues we're currently experiencing.
As an educator - I would really appreciate if this feature could be enabled - safeguards everyone and allows me to have smaller groups within my team

Must be there. As mentioned will save on teams creation sprawl and can focus meeting to channels and not people

Record a meeting in a Private Channel is very important. I need that you as a company consider add this feature. Thanks.

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.
TSV Weekly Planning
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.
