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.

Awesome! I'm glad this is being worked on!
Great - really need it to happen and to integrate with Outlook calendar.

That sounds great. At some point having the option in MS Outlook to include calendar events in MS Teams would be awesome. For example, if you are working on a project with a group of people that schedule project meetings, being able to select a button in outlook while setting up a vacation day to include in the Teams calendar would be huge.
Thank you very much! This will be most helpful!

This is a must have functionality!
This is much needed functionality, please can we have it?

We utilize a shared calendar within 365 and Outlook in order to communicate agendas and staff scheduling changes. Is there a way to view a shared calendar from within Teams? This would be ideal.

I would prefer not to go out to another system, and would find it really helpful for Teams to have a calendar to help manage projects.

I am trying to get my team moved over to the Teams App, but I feel like the barrier to Teams is the lack of a quality Calendar.

I hope this is in flight for delivery :)
This is a no brainer...I really think Microsoft screwed up by not having this at the start of teams.
Without a calendar, the app is nearly worthless.
I think we are all sick of switching back and forth between apps, it's time for some unification.

The teams calendar should also, optionally, integrate with Planner so it can pick up deadlines logged in Planner.
Similarly it should be able to, optionally, display dates from the individual Outlook calendars of team members.
And it should also be possible to display a Team calendar within Outlook.
If team calendar is offered, than at least you should be able to view when someone is available or not. That means all free/blocked timings of that particular person have to be seen. If that is not possible there is no point in offering a team calendar for me. A work-around is not an option. You either offer a proper possibility and make it work or you don't.
Our users are frequently asking for a TEAM calendar! If Teams had a native team/group calendar to track all member's time off, bookings, etc - they'd be very happy.
This has ben a request for some time now during our push to the business for Team adoption. If the Group calendar was available in Teams, (Channel or Tab) and setting Exchange Online attributes like BookIn Policy and AutoAccept were available, this would help the adoption rate. We love this product, but this would be the game changer for us. Thanks
Yep, kinda. Or, here's a brain storm, allow access and integration from the already existing outlook calendar. If you are in teams, then you have an outlook calendar, if a team event happens and you are part of the team it shows on your calendar, if you need to schedule something or assign something...it shows on your/their calendar. This should be part of the fundamentals, we should discussing getting the icon in cornflower blue, not WHY ISNT IT THEIR
We have Teams for Sales team which consists of 20+ business units, wants to share the calendars events/exhibitions, that including events/exhibitions from customer and supplier, by using Calendar. Unfortunately, no Calendar available in Teams. Make no sense since Teams is to bring the members for sharing information, communication and collaborate.
I keep reading about this workaround by adding a web url https://outlook.office365.com/owa/?path=/group/<group mailbox email address>/calendar
How do you find the group mailbox email address???

This is the biggest thing in our Org aside from Video Conferences since we are multiple site and Corp plus Location all needing to work together and have a collective calendar between all the Teams we are on. Not sure why Teams cannot have a Group Calendar App and Tabs. Seems simple. Can someone from the Microsoft Team explain behind the scenes what the problem is and will this ever happen.

I'm struggling to understand how Teams ever got released without this as a core part of the product. I think it boils down to Groups being a product of the Outlook dept and Teams coming from Skype. The two departments (dare I say, teams) should really come together and work out their differences.
