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.

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?
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'?

+1 for calendar integration into Teams.
+1 yes, please integrate a calender into Teams.
It would be great to be able to add a calendar specific to the project or also show that a task is due on the calendar so we can add items such as deployments or business objectives, dates the team members are not available without having to create a Microsoft Office Outlook OWA calendar.

I'm not sure if this has already been stated, but would it be possible to somehow integrate the Outlook calendar with Teams? I don't see a monthly calendar option in Teams, and the Outlook calendar has features such as the scheduling assistant which are very helpful in seeing multiple people's calendars at once. As of now I only see an option in Teams to see one calendar and only for the current week. Thank you.

We use the Team Calendar for our service and support scheduling. Would be nice to see in Teams and on Mobile device
Please consider being able to filter the tab by channel so that only appointments assigned to a channel are listed.
Is it possible to integrate Teams with Outlook 2016, as you did with groups so we can work in one place.
REALLY need the calendaring to be added or available so we can make the switch from 3 applications to Teams for this kind of use management.
Yes, I agree. Please can you expose the Group calendar? This is a very important feature for our users.

+1 to showing the calendar from Groups
Or include the Bookings agenda in teams and outlook
when you create a team you get a team calendar

Team Calendar function much needed
Having a native calendar tab that can be shared would be handy, but perhaps a start would be to use a shared Microsoft Exchange (or 365) calendar and to simply serve it up in a Calendar tab?

As an administrative assistant, it would be really handy to be able to see all of the calendars that have been shared with me within teams. That way when someone contacts me through Teams chat to schedule a meeting with my boss, I don't have to leave the Teams app to do so. Currently I still have to keep outlook open to view his calendar. I'd like to be able to see my calendar as well as his within Teams, and to be able to schedule a meeting on his behalf like I can currently within Outlook.

Can't you just expose the Group Calendar? Having more than one calendar would also help
Nicholas Batchelor commented
Create a tab that presents a combined view of members' calendars.
A team Calendar should also be optionally available.
(in my opinion calendars from Exchange Mailboxes are preferable to those from Sharepoint)
The calendar features should also work if users have on premises mailboxes.
A further ability to overlay or present activities from the Planner would also be great.
