How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

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.

    Thanks,
    Suphatra

        Yes, this is definitely an important feature. I'm falling in love with Teams, but a calendar is a must!

        Is there a way to view 18 team members calendars in one place? When searching this issue, I was brought to this site. Hoping someone can help. Thanks, Noel

        Not having the existing group calendar available in Teams is a significant drawback. Without having the group calendar available in Teams I'm going to have a hard time getting people in my company to want to use Teams.

        can anyone take 10 min and explain it to me in Detail on how to add a Group calender into Teams?

        Many many thanks!

        Until there is an official way to do this, is there a workaround that can be used? Other than, of course, telling users to bounce back and forth between Teams and Groups.

        I have added a sharepoint calendar within the sharepoint team site that gets created, then added a website tab and pointed to the calendar URL. Seems to work ok

        Please incorporate this feature asap. With Teams taking over Microsoft Classroom it would be very helpful to be able to access the Calendar from within the Teams console so it's all in one place.

        I would echo the need for this. If Teams is going to be the landing and entry point to a number of "Team" functions. Exposing the Calendar is "Must Have" not a nice to have. If Teams is using the underlying Groups, I am not getting why this would be difficult to implement.. Thanks. Rich

        Honestly, I don't understand why this is "very difficult". The Office 365 Group calendar is exposed via a REST endpoint using the Microsoft Graph. It should be very easy to show data and allow updating group calendar's. What am I missing?

      • KassidyKassidy commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Honestly, we just need some sort of calendar. While it would be nice, it doesn't need to be the Group calendar. This could be your Outlook calendar, a calendar parked on a SharePoint site, or a Team-specific calendar. To me, a native Team calendar would be the next best option if the Group calendar idea is too hard.

        Has to be a way... Are the blockers related to other ideas we can up-vote to 'grease the wheels'?
