You have the option to make the meeting private, to only those you invite, or public to your entire Team. To make the meeting private, do not select a channel for the meeting. To open up the meeting to others on your Team, select a channel in which to hold the meeting.



For more information, go to Schedule a Meeting or watch the tutorial video below:
