Can you create an event in Teams channel using 'channel calendar' function, without having the event sent directly to guests' emails?

Hi, I have a Teams channel that has the 'channel calendar' tab. I would like to create events on this calendar without notifying members of the group and without having each event sent over to members' calendars. I know that once you create events in this calendar, it creates a group in Outlook and you can have a side-by-side view of the calendars. Is there a way to send calendar invites so that it pops up on the group calendar, but not on a member's personal calendar? Thank you.

    Hi @W, Adrienne

    Are you adding users as required attendees?

    When you create a channel meeting, the required attendees appear on your calendar and receive email invitations. Other attendees in the channel won't appear on the calendar, only in the channel calendar tab and Outlook.
