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.
The team continues to make progress on this. We will share more details as we have them.

Any update about this please?
Now our school is rolling out Teams due to Covid, can't believe that functionality that was part of the old 365 group way of working isn't available in teams. It's a basic productivity tool that our teams need.

Any News on this???

Yes, but you must have Exchange Server 2016 CU3 and later running with Hybrid configured.
We already have calendars in Outlook. Integration of that into Teams would be fine, but we don't need multiple calendars to maintain.
Can we use a calendar on teams if we don't exchange online?
If possible how do we get it working?

"Working on it" is not an acceptable answer. This has been in the works for over 3 years! ONLY Microsoft would release and market a collaboration app without a functional calendar, which is a foundation app of ANY team app. Creating a working calendar is not rocket science. Maybe call one of the Apple engineers for some advice...
Great to see that others below want to have a common framework with everything on board for team sharing and you do not forget in this Teams environment our guest, customers, suppliers and partners who are main target and will appreciate added value of this great collaboration tool.

Hopefully this includes a way to show a webcal link in a tab.
Unless there is already a way to do this, someone tell me how please?
With COVID-19 changing how we work - our employees' voice is getting louder on this need. Teams that may otherwise have analog schedules published in the office are asking what digital solutions we can offer. We're suggesting Outlook, but many of our users are asking why they need to go back and forth between software. This is one of the foundational promises of Teams - a centralized hub for teamwork.
Also, as you get closer to releasing this, please consider the guest user. Our employees will expect that guests in their team would be able to access the calendar. Thanks for all you're doing with Teams! keep it up!
would be great if new team members were automatically added to group meetings - we have to add them manually despite the group being set as an attendee. Very manual and creating a lot of work for our every growing Teams site.

'Makes progress...' is hardly reassuring that any work is being done. If there was a timeline to this it has long since disappeared of any calendar into history. Come on, make a commitment! SharePoint has a calendar function, bring that forward to Teams - or find an app developer who can do that anyway.

Month view in the calendar! How is basic functionality that all other Microsoft calendars have not there.

I have an alias Outlook account for a specific work function/team that has it's own inbox and calendar. We send appointment invites out from this account specifically, so any member of this account can send these out (this allows for these appts. not to be sent from any individual's account). Is/will there be a way to send meeting invites out from within Teams from our group Outlook account/identity?
The "website Page" is not available to me to add. Is this a license level issue?
1) Go to OWA, get the link of the group calendar;
2) In your team, add a website page and use the group calendar link

Would be really good - in case the calendar functionality in teams remains only on a very basic level - to allow outlook to fully handle teams meetings/series. A the moment I can´t even shift my own (teams-)series in outlook and thus am forced to use the uncomfortable and restricted possibilities in teams.

I work as the IT person for a team made up primarily sales people in the field. They are notoriously unwilling to do anything extra that enhances their ability to be more available for collaboration. The "Holy Grail" for this company continues to be a central calendar that fully syncs - both ways - with each individual team member's calendar. Bottom line, if they have to make more than one calendar entry to have a centralized team calendar, it simply will never happen.
It would be great if there was a calendar function on MS Teams that accomplishes this - and I can't believe that there isn't!

May 4th - still waiting for an update on the Feb 13th note. A much needed feature.
I do think that Calendar, To do tasks and Planner need to work together to make Teams more efficient. Heard To do and Planner will work together starting next month and on board July, yet to hear about Calendars also to be implemented. If these are shared by user, than Teams will be much more effective. It is a great product already. Keep up the hard work
