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 news when the calendar can be linked with the 365 group calendar? Trying to place the main access into one location.

This would be very helpful
We'd love to have a Team Calendar for a group of folks to see recurring meetings, click into the meeting to see the leader/team meeting link to get into the meeting, agenda and so forth

A manual workaround I've been using is as follows;
1. Make sure you create your team in Outlook, as this ensures that the Group Calendar is visible within Outlook (creating a team via any other method "hides" the corresponding group in Outlook by default, although this can be changed I believe)
2. Add a Group Calendar app to the your team's Sharepoint Site Collection homepage
3. Copy the URL for this group calendar
4. Create a new "Website" app in the Teams channel, then copy the URL to the Group Calendar
5. Voila - you can now open the group calendar from within the Teams app!
It actually opens the calendar in OWA within the Teams app, which seems to default to overlaying the users personal calendar too, but (if you've created the team via Outlook) you will be able to deselect this and ensure the correct Team calendar is displayed on it's own.
Hope this helps!
How can this not be a basic feature of TEAMS, especially since all the pieces are already on the table. Given the world's serious demand today for online work spaces this should be a priority.
Glenn Webster commented
This seems like a high demand feature. Much more important than being able to blur background in video meetings yet it's been on the list for years. Please make it a priority.
If this feature doesn't exist I will recommend to my company that we not implement MS Teams and stay with our current product. We are been evaluating MS Teams and this is a huge hole, and tells me that MS Teams is not really ready for prime-time. It's not just this one feature but it indicates poor product planning. What other key features are non-existent?

We want to see shared calendar in teams app.
is there any alpha or beta trials we can have for the time being?
Kellie Paterson commented
This was bought up in 2016, has it ever progressed as a feature
Igor Silva commented
Is this still on the roadmap? Much needed feature!
Chip Jordan commented
Any chance we can get more details on estimated delivery, seeing as this has been a suggestion since 2016? Personally, lack of this feature is one of the main reasons I've not officially adopted Teams for my group. Thanks.

Please count my vote too

Why can't I easily create a calendar invitation for everyone on a team channel? It should go to their personal calendars and the post to the team channel. This seems so basic. I am shocked that it does not work. When will this functionality be added?
Donna Steinwand commented
We have business units who are asking for this functionality.
A team calendar with possibility for month view would be great!... is essential
Misty M Green commented
Month View please
It is completely crazy some of the basic things that do not exist in Teams when Microsoft is trying to win market share from Slack, Asana, etc. Step up your game MSFT and put some more devs on Teams.
Imagine my surprise when my company decides to roll out Teams and there's no TEAM calendar for my team to share..... Not really conducive to a collaborative application.
Is there a planned release date?
