Include Office 365 group calendar in teams
It would be good to be able to click on a calendar button on the left hand side to get a view of the Office 365 groups calendar as you would in the calendar app. Good for being able to look and get a glimpse of what is coming up with the group. At the moment I have to go back to the calendar to look at it.
So it turns out there are some several external dependencies that are hindering our plans for this feature. We are pulling it back into review so we can determine feasibility. Here’s to hoping we find a way to bring this to you — right now its very difficult. We are not taking this off the table though; we know this is an important feature, so we’re tracking the external dependencies to see where they land.
My org does not want to use teams as there is no team calendar option available. They prefer to keep using O365 groups rather than teams due this basic functionality not being available.

That could make us to use a Google Calendar instead ! ;-) Not the idea for Microsoft I presume... Really important feature, no joke !

Definitely need a team calendar in Teams. It is the missing link for us. Should be a high development priority.
Certainly a necessity
Any update here since June? Lack of calendar is blocking Teams use within my customer orgs. as a basic and fundamental requirement to collaborate is a calendar.

This would be a great feature... Would like to see it be able to work with a shared calendar from exchange for those of us using onsite exchange for email
If you can have a shared calendar in a group, why is it not there in a team? This feature needs to be in the Teams so I hope you can get it rolled out soon.
Calendar is a must! If there are external dependencies with o365 group calendar give us an independent calendar that I can tag to teams!

Surely this is a basic tool for collaboration? I tried a workaround with adding a link to the Team calendar created by default in OWA, but is shows your personal calendar instead.
This needs to be a blank calendar, to which you can add milestones, vacations, and so on.

+1 for group calendar

Must have. A Team will function more efficiently with a collaboration calendar.
Concur with multiple other comments; a shared calendar within a team is a fundamental tool and extremely inefficient to require setting up work-arounds in MS Outlook.

I couldn't agree more with the comments. This seems like collaboration 101.
Nick Duxfield commented
This really should be a feature. You create a Team, it goes out and creates a calendar, share-point teams site and much more. 3+ dis-separate things that cant work in an app for teams.
Could you create a calendar for each channel?

I understand completely and 100% that we are creating workarounds in the other thread related to this, but when I see a +50 line css script as part of it, I can't help but think that MS did not think through execution of teams for such a (basic) feature..?
Stefan Popovic commented
It would be nice to be able to include any shared calendar as well. Sometimes there may be a calendar that is more relevant than the group calendar.
Wow, this is a must-have. I was surprised when there wasn't already a "Calendar" tab created or available in the application.
This would be greatly beneficial for sure.
