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.

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

I have to plan and schedule a month in advance. A week is way too short for me. I have to be able to see the month. It could be integrated from outlook I don't care but I need it please.
Need to be able to view a full working day on the screen let alone a month!
At 9AM i can't even see my schedule beyond 2 PM without scrolling down.
We already have calendars in Outlook and certainly do NOT need to be keeping separate calendars. I vote against this idea; or at least making it a mandatory addition. If optional, I really don't care. Or, allow for integration of Outlook calendar. That would be fine.
have few server calendars on MS Outlook (i.e. Projects Calendar) that would like to import to MS Teams to share with my team. Is there any way to do that? is there any plan to migrate MS Outlook Calendars into MS Teams Calendar?https://coffeehero.com.au/
Would be great once Teams Calendar is available that each person in your team can be assigned a different color.

This would be a great tool if fully synchronized with Outlook Calendar... you shouldn't have to be updating in 2 different Calendars. If from Teams to Outlook it seems to work well, the other way around is not always the case.
Our organization is new to TEAMS and we don't have the calendar capability available within TEAMS. How is it determined...whether or not you have the capability?
Can you please give an ETA when this will be available, managing a team is quite difficult without visibly seeing calendars within teams.

i did some search online and found a way to insert web based calendars to insert the URL to share the calendar but this is not covering for MS Outlook to MS Teams.
will appreciate your feedback.
In Teams I would like to be able to see other people's calendars side-by-side just as you can in Outlook on the Day View.

Being able to see others calendars like in outlook would really be awesome....
Could you please ask them to postpone the scheduling improvements. We have Outlook and its free busy.
If you need to work with calendar, then fix the bug that we cannot define when the week start. US is not for all.
this can be done if you use a license. Call it company calendar and share it with all users. Have each user Add a calendar, from directory, search for the name (company calendar) and open it. That calendar then shows up on the users Calendar area. Then when creating a Video meeting in Teams invite the Company calendar. Everyone will have that view and be able to see all Video meetings.
