According to Microsoft's Documentation (I can't add more than 2 links due to rep, so Google Microsoft Teams schedule meeting, click on the first result titled Meetings and calling - Office Support and expand the "What's a private scheduled meeting?" section), you can schedule a private meeting using the calendar icon on the left-hand side.

I don't see this icon. I see Activity, Chat, Teams and Files at the top, and at the bottom, Feedback and my Avatar.

Is the icon something I need to enable? Something that could possibly be restricted by the type of Office 365 subscription we have (Education - Faculty and Staff)? I can't see any settings in the Teams app / website, and private scheduled meetings is turned on in the admin section of the Office 365 portal:

Buried on a Microsoft support page is this section:

Issue: Missing Meetings icon in the left nav bar

Symptom: The Meetings icon on the app bar is currently only enabled for users whose mailbox is on Office 365 multi-tenant and a select few dedicated users whose mailbox location can be discovered using Exchange auto discovery. Microsoft Teams does not yet support mailboxes housed in Exchange on-premises and Exchange Dedicated. This is under investigation; however, there is no timing for delivering this capability.

Workaround: No workaround.

So essentially this feature won't show up if your mailbox is hosted on-site. It's being investigated, but with no timeline for getting it working.
