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.

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.

I would love for my Teams calendar to allow for color coding items. I currently use red for important meetings that I can't miss or reschedule, yellow for reminders, etc.

I would like to see a 15min and 45min increment option for meeting length.

Thank you! Definitely need to incorporate calendaring as an essential skill for students when trying to organize teams assignments and meetings for schools!
Seems like a monthly view would be a must have on any app displaying a calendar. Please make this a priority!!!

Give us a Month view!

Please email me as to why I can’t change my “Teams” calendar to a MONTH view, for example...
It should have the same options, functions as the Outlook Calendar.

it would be very useful to view a shared outlook calendar in teams
My team all use Outlook which is replicated in their own version of the Teams Calendar Would it not be easy just to add a tick box option to the 'New Appointment/Meeting process so it can be added to a group diary which all the Team Members could see/access. You should only be able to amend your own entries but it would be good to see when other members of the team are busy and how long for!
Outlook had such a great calendar. I'm not sure why they would discard every setting already built into Outlook just to start from scratch with something terrible in Teams.
Not sure if in scope of this work but many of my users liked the concept of the SharePoint Site calendar, you could have a calendar specific to the members of that site and tracking things. You could also overlay that in Outlook and it was very nice. My users are looking for something similar in Teams, where there is a "tab" option for a Calendar that is specific to the Team or even the Channels themselves, as "private" channels can now have a different subset of permissions. Would also be nice if Planner items could be included to a calendar function for milestones and tracking that way. Just some thoughts....

I have a feeling Microsoft Lists will bring the calendar to Teams. Just a hunch
I'm missing the functionality to assign categories and the status (available, occupied, Private...) to a meeting. It's a pity that I have to return to Outlook to change those settings.
When planning a channel meeting, the planning assistant should give the opportunity to see the availibilty of all members to propose a time. It must not be standard, because for large groupes this is not the purpose, but for small groups in a channel this would be very practical.
- Integrate with the outlook calendars of team members
- Allow a "resource availability" view out into the future... at least 1Q out
- Allow a high-level view of what projects each resource is working on
