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.
Improvements to day/work week/week view are in the public ring. Our focus now is a new scheduling experience and scheduling assistant, appointments and more.
For feedback related to Group Calendar please see this User Voice item: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16933204-include-office-365-group-calendar-in-teams.

We would like to schedule tasks for our team in advance so they go into each work day knowing whats coming up for them today, in the next day, or days. This is really a scheduling function for workflow. This would be hugely valuable for our team who now have had an emergency deployment to work from home (COVID-19) and need to achieve multiple varying tasks each day as we are an essential service provider.
We would would be most appreciative if you can have this function allow a Manager to forward a 'Task' for a specific time frame, within a day part, into an employees calendar or schedule, from teams.
Ideally, the Task in Teams would have a time mgmt function for the task
The Calendar or schedule would then visually display the assigned tasks in the order the tasks are assigned - Like 27/03/2020; 8:30; 10mins, Next Task; 27/03/2020; 8.40; 30mins. and be coloured based on the label assigned, ETC.
A fixed or variable time for each item would be needed to be added to the checklist. The Task 'Total Time' would then build based on the number of items added to the checklist in the task. I have provided an illustration for you. a few other requirements are shown in the attached file.
This is a very important requirement request at this very difficult time.

Add a Month view to the calendar! How is this not already in there?
I guess this is not a big a deal as I previously thought, but now that most of my work as revolves around MSTeam, having a real time calendar would really be the bees knees!
I'd like to link a Team or Channel to any custom calendar that I create in Outlook

It was an interesting idea

Please add a month view, how this wasn't added to begin with is beyond me.
Our team has actually created a group calendar in SharePoint and then added it as a tab to a General channel on our Team. Great way to see who's on PTO and shift schedules.

Hey, admins. The previous-admin-but-one started hunting down the status of this request over a year ago. Has anything come back?

Can we add the ability to share my availability with external contacts? (Only show busy or free, with no details) Is it so painful right now to schedule calls with partners or customers. I need to write down the timesslots in email for them to check. Sometimes by the time they get back to me, my schedule has already changed.
Hi Microsoft team, could you please provide a visibility on when we would get a team calendar.
Is he group calendar that we get with O365 group, the same thing? just that it is not integaretd inside Teams UI?
please anybody advise

On uservoice today to look for the ability to just add the calendar to a teaming, not the whole team. We are using MS teams for a huge project and need a central calendar to see all the different meetings going on for the project. But not everyone needs to be invited.
Found this request and @suphatra posting in 2018 about wanting to test it, but she doesn't work for microsoft anymore. not sure anyone is looking at uservoice :(

No update in a year? Come on Microsoft. This is a glaring omission in a flagship product
Ryan Oden commented
Calendar per Team + the ability to overlay them would be amazing.
Marcus Giles commented
Collaborative Calendar per team is a desperate need...
Why is this not a feature in Teams yet? OMG!
For example, a shared team "out of office" calendar in Teams? This makes soooo much sense.

Could we also have a monthly view?
