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.

        I'm new to Teams... I absolutely cannot believe my teams calendar is not my primary Outlook calendar. this is crazy. I can only assume Teams was purchased by Microsoft, and shoehorned into Exchange/Outlook....

        I'm attempting to create a unit calendar for my classes that includes links to Teams assignments and/or Class Notebook pages in order to give students a broad overview of what will take place all month. A tab for Outlook or Mail would help tremendously -- even better, a unit plan app. We don't have assignments every single day -- sometimes we simply need a record of what we have studied and and an overview of what we will do in class the next week.

        Use case: when I add a new member to a group, the team events in the group calendar show automatically be sent/available to the new member of the group.

        Is this it?

        I'd LOVE to have a calendar tab in teams for posting reminders, events, announcements and assignments (that do not need to be turned in online). It would also be great if all of the items added to each team's calendar would show up on one calendar for the student.

        having a calendar just in teams as a tab would be amazing. This would create a simple way to see what the team has going on. With teams the whole idea is one place to see everything.

        Just started using Teams, one thing that is missing is the ability to create a team calendar that will sync with team members Outlook calendar. The team member should be able to select the type of info shared to the team calendar.

        I view Teams as being my 'portal' into Office 365. It's got my Planner, my SharePoint, my OneNote, etc....

        What's missing is a personal/home 'team', which is just your personal section that no one else can see. Within it, you should have tabs for OneDrive, Outlook, Calendars, Planner etc... so you can keep all your MS tools in the one place.

        I would like to be able to add a Class Calendar. Can I use the calendar in Outlook - It does not seem to recognize the url

        Teams has simplified everything else but team calendars. How can you call this an integrated solution when you cannot have calendars available for each team/channel? You guys need to seriously divert resources and time to resolving this problem. Its the missing piece to this product and a major issue for any organisation. I create a calendar entry in anything other than the default calendar in outlook and it doesnt appear in Teams at all!!! Only default calendar entries do.

        This would be an excellent option to subscribe to, so when we are working in Teams app, we can still see what is coming up on the calendar..

        Every Team have a SharepointOnline Site.
        It will be so Usefull to Add a SharePoint "Team"-Calender.
        Stored in this SharepointOnline-Site.

        It would be good to be able to customise the window for seeing meetings - or at least be able to page ahead.

        I would like a calendar tab just to be able to add in a calendar from Outlook or SharePoint, even if it's not necessarily the calendar for that team but another shared calendar available within the company.

        Adding an integrated Team calendar that can pull team members calendar items to Outlook

      • Ian Bennett commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Maybe team calendars could be integrated with the Meetings item on the left hand side? Each calendar could be listed and selectable on/off. Its always nice to have one place to go to see what's scheduled for the day.

      • Ian Bennett commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Agree. One of the problems with using a website tab for this is you get the group header and menu items (Conversations, Calendar, Files, Notebook, etc) which is superfluous so takes up space unnecessarily and may cause confusion.

      • Nikrampi commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Really nice idea, I would really use the Team Calendar (coming from corresponding Outlook Group)!
        It would be awesome to have new calendar view with integrated Planner tasks due dates.
