  • Click “Send”
Step III: Add an agenda to the meeting
  • Now click on “Teams” (in the left sidebar)
  • Locate and click the Team/Channel where you created the meeting.
  • Click on the “Meetings” tab (at the top)
If you don’t see a “Meetings” tab, contact the Team admin/owner and ask them to add it to the channel.
