Other common solutions are also shown below.
Working in Channels
By default, any team owner or team member can create a private channel. Guests can't create them. The ability to create private channels can be managed at the team level and at the organization level. Team owners can turn on moderation for a standard channel to control who can start new posts and reply to posts in that channel. For more information go to Teams and Channels help.
Teams provides a great out-of-the-box collaboration experience for your organization, and most organizations find that the default settings work for them.
Guest access in Teams lets individuals outside your organization access teams and channels. You can use the guest access settings to control which features guest users can or can't use. Guest access is turned off by default. To learn more, see Guest access in Teams.
Teams settings let you set up your teams for features such as email integration, cloud storage options, organization tab, meeting room device setup, and search scope. When you make changes to these settings, they apply to all the teams in your organization. To learn more, see Teams settings.
Scheduling meetings using Outlook
Microsoft Teams includes the Outlook add-in, which lets you create new Teams meetings directly from Outlook. It also lets people view, accept, or join meetings in either app.
Note: Currently, you can schedule Teams meetings from Outlook, but not choose a channel to have them in. More information can be found here
