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.
Sorry for the delay on an update on this one! I’m hunting down the status for you and will update once I have it.
Also, if you are interested in participating in testing or surveys for this, just tweet me at @skprufo.

We need this feature
A real calendar in Teams / SharePoint would be a great feature for our business.
- Outlook/Exchange has it's user presents features, pulled from peoples calendar activities. Having this also cross into Teams/Sharepoint, as a (Last Month, Current Month, Next Month) view, would provide the team a quick glimps of availability of members etc.
- having this team calendar also appear in a SharePoint Team or communications site. Would make use of intelligent automated availability based on user calendar activities.
- And a feature that would be great would be a global "All user" availability calendar (probably wont work for business with thousands of employees), for smaller business, a portal (SharePoint) Hub/communications pages that can give an insight into Annual leave absentees etc would be perfect.
Almost 2 months since the latest update: any news
I want to keep all things private.
So that, I prefer using paper calendar!)
Something like https://onplanners.com/templates/calendars/yearly
Paper Calendar Benefits. For many people the paper calendar diary provides simplicity and flexibility to see the big picture, to plan, and jot down appointments and ideas. There is something about physically writing down a task or an appointment that helps our brains remember the task better.

We're starting to explore and test Teams. We are looking for ways to have team calendar for specific topic. Our idea was to create meetings associated to a channel, which is feasible. However, we didn't find a way to see effectively those entries within a calendar view. We can only see the meetings appearing in the conversation, which is not enough organised. It seems obvious but I realise by reading this forum thread that I'm not the only one searching for a such solution.
The Teams and Office365 calendar has to act as a real calendar. With easy access and managable access, e.g. view and editcapabilities for persons and groups
I am also happy to help test. Do not have Twitter account for corporate use so please email me. Thanks
Thank you for the update, Suphrata. I am interested in testing though my Twitter is not associated with this account.
We plodding along in our use of TEAMS but have increased needs that includes the calendar. It could really accelerate adoption is we have an integrated calendar.
I'm also interested in testing but have no Twitter account.

is TeamCalender available in desktop app or just web site?
Hi Suphatra, nice to hear about update for calendar in teams. I am intrested in testing or file out surveys. I have no twitter, so please email me. thanks Sam
I like the "meetings" icon and it is really helpful. But a TeamCalender within Teams would be awesome.
any update on this?
Is there an update for the calendar? In its current form, we are unable to use due to lack of group calendar, and lack of more than 1 week view of future appts.
Pretty much one of the very first things I went looking to add to our IT team, and could not find!
We currently have a "Call out calendar" created in Excel, and have that added as a tab. It works, but would prefer a real calendar solution.
Planner has a calendar view, which we thought about using, but have each "Call out" entry as a task is feasible.
