How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

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.

        Integrate seamlessly with a calendar of choice such as outlook calendar or Google calendar.

        Is Microsoft even listening to us? I've do a ton of looking around and it seems like there is a ton of need for this.

        I cant believe a program called "TEAMS" doesn't have a way to have a common calendar across the team.

        It makes no sense to me. Common Microsoft, time to listen to your client base.

        Very surprised this wasn't there from the beginning. Please move this from "under review" to "implemented" as soon as possible!

        Please add this function. I've used the web add-on for Teams and grabbed the URL for associated Outlook Group to make this work. It not always a consistent though, sometimes it would put my personal calendar up.
        But it would be a better experience to just add a Calendar tab that defaulted to the Groups calendar.

        Pretty important to have a team calendar if you're working on a project team. hard to believe this was missed.

        Pretty Please! Another idea - how about migrating SharePoint calendar into Teams?

        Agree with "We use a public folder calendar that an calendar admin can add edit, but the rest of the company can view (but not edit). There seems to be no way to cludge this together in Teams. A Teams calendar is 100% editable by all team members, and this is not good."

        In addition, it would help me share a public marketing calendar that they can access and see what emails are scheduled, events, etc. to the appropriate teams for complete transparency and clear communication.

        We are in the middle of deploying Teams to a few departments and this was an embarrassing topic to talk through. "You mean, we can use the App to collaborate with our Team, but we can't check our Team's calendar from within the App?" Please add ASAP!

        Allow view of the calendar in following months to better determine meeting dates

      • BerkJ commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is definitely a missed feature. would also like to see the team/group calendar be able to add in as a tab inside of the Team's app. would make it more convenient to click a tab inside the Team when checking team related events or due dates instead of opening another application.

        Yup...make it easy for me to see any employee's calendar in Teams (assuming I can see their availability).

        1. When RC or hold mouse over team profile, I have Email, Org Chart, Video call or Audio call...just give me Calendar on there.

        2. When I click on Meetings, let me see the calendars of chosen employees.

        Keep on making it better, MS!
