Teams needs a REAL Calendar!
Would love to have a Calendar to allow those in the same team to view each other's availability and whereabouts. Would make it a lot easier to create appointments/meetings.
The calendar could be a tab in a channel (so then you could have multiple calendars in one team) or could be an icon on the left app bar, instead of "Meetings" which is helpful to no one.
Could also be helpful to add a way for us to add a SharePoint Team calendar.
The team has delivered improvements to the New Meeting experience in Calendar such as optional attendees, richer custom recurrence UX, as well as enhanced meeting RSVPs.
To learn more about RSVPing to meetings in the Teams Calendar, how to create a recurring meeting, and the new meeting scheduling experience including the scheduling assistant, please visit https://support.microsoft.com/office/schedule-a-meeting-in-teams-943507a9-8583-4c58-b5d2-8ec8265e04e5.
-Teams Channel : SLN Commerce
-Teams Channel has 3 owners: Admin 1, Admin 2 and Admin 3
-Each Admin has their own calendar, when Admin 1creates a meeting on his calendar, it does not show up on Admin 2's calendar neither on Admin 3
*admin 1 creates test 1 shows in admin 1 calendar = both Outlook and Teams
-checked in outlook, it shows as personal calendar
*admin 2 creates test 2 shows in admin 2 calendar = both Outlook and Teams
-checked in outlook, it shows as personal calendar
-tried accessing both calendars at the same time in Outlook, the Test meeting created inside teams is still not showing
-customer is asking if there is a way to see both calendars at the same time for ALL Owners since both admins are owners of the same Teams Channels
-customer suspects that the meetings created inside Teams will not sync on the Owner's calendar as it is being detected as Personal Calendars instead
We use the task tracking in the planner app to add out of office, vacation etc.
This allows everyone in the team channel to access task tracking and switch to calendar view to see who is in the office etc.
It would be great if you could change the default view to the schedule/calendar view.
Instead when you open planner it defaults to board view and you always have to switch to calendar view to see the status of everyone.
Isn't this really a duplicate ask of this one?
If the votes were merged, this one should be really really high on your list.
Yep...Alex...seems you are missing the mark of what this ask is. This is about having a group calendar experience where all members of the Team see and share a group calendar. What you are talking about is a "My" Calendar experience.

When I added my comments on this thread I was not thinking displaying my outlook calendar in Teams for the meeting information. My intentions and or desire was to see a shared calendar for each team, possibly a tab that could be added like files and channels so I may have a separate calendar for Team A and Team B that I may be a member off While I welcome all the improvements made to Teams thus far you are not addressing what I envision when I say Teams needs a real calendar. We have added calendars under a particular team by leveraging the SharePoint site underlying the Team itself but this is a bit clunky. Ideally I would like to see a team based shared calendar that could even incorporate tasks and task deadlines assignable to team members.

We are not talking about a meeting calendar, we want something to show stuff like birthdays and important events on a tab in a team. It is not for events that would be on our personal calendars
Your update that was just posted "Partially Done" on Nov 5, 2020 - that's not what this post is about. This post is about sharing a calendar within a Team. Not about individual calendars. I mean, the enhancements are nice, but that doesn't get us any closer to a true Team calendar.

Please vote below for Month View, over 1000 Votes and listed as on backlog:
Is there not a MONTH view of the calendar? Only day or week view? I must be missing something, it can't possibly be this worthless.
Please make this one of the highest priorities. Simple feature that every calendar should have.

The biggest single benefit for me would be to add other calendars, per the same function in outlook

I would like you add colors as in Outlook.
It would also be great to link the calendar view to the contact chat.. So if you're chatting to someone, that you would then easily be able to view their calendar.

The Microsoft Teams app has one main calendar that's assigned to your entire group or organization. Group members can add meetings or events to this calendar that automatically show up in the calendar for other members. Individuals can also be added to calendar events or meetings if they're required to attend.
I'm rather excited to see the Teams Calendar after 2 years of development. Its going to be awesome 👍
This is a highly desired feature for me.
Not yet implemented, please make this priority, Thanks

Please add agenda view to it not just a calendar view so we can just see list of meetings without having to go to every date
Agree that to roll over a persons picture should give a calendar option that shows the current day or weeks calendar, a quick view. Currently creatign a dummy meeting is too long winded
Aloha from University of Hawaii. For my online class, I was hoping to take advantage of the live auto-captioning (for ADA compliance) in meetings using Microsoft Teams. Sorry, but my university does NOT use Exchange for e-mail services. My Microsoft Teams does NOT have a calendar icon, and I am an ordinary faculty member, so I cannot "just" login to the Teams Administrator to look at policies. I found some instructions on how to simulate breakout rooms by creating all of these channels (which I *CAN* do), but then the instructions say to schedule a meeting (during class time) in each channel. ALAS! I do NOT have the calendar icon so I cannot schedule ANY meetings at all! If you want faculty at schools that are not using Exchange to use Teams, there needs to be a way for us to schedule meetings.
