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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • Jennifer McKinney commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    As we increasingly use Teams for our projects, we find that having an integrated calendar that allows tasking and managing tasks to be more and more important. Unfortunately, planner does not do this well in our opinion.

    We need to see a month view within teams to make sure we are not scheduling conflicts. Right now we can only see a week.

    This is a thing, except you have to log into the OWA to see it. I do believe being able to see it in Teams should be a thing.

    Having a calendar in a channel and a view with all calendars grouped for a team would provide a unifying view of events or milestones relevant to the members. Integrating it with planner would tie actions to date and enable to monitor progress effectively.

    It would be helpful to have multiple calendars for a team: one for projects, one for holidays, etc. Option to subscribe, so don't get notifications every time someone goes on holiday.

    It would be helpful to be able to add an editable calendar to our channel as a team tab.

    Create a native Calendar tab. I am able to create a Calendar app in the Teams sharepoint site and embed it in a Tab as a WebSite tab but that could all be automated with a Calendar tab.

  • Matthew commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Something huge that is missing is a group/team Calendar as a tab. I guess I could just pull in a website but I think it should be more natively integrated.

  • Anna commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    In Teams you can only schedule meetings. There is no way to display a small calendar (like the dashboard in Glip) nor a short list of upcoming events for the team on the left or right column. Having to tell a large number of people to link to a different tabs or go to groups to see the calendar is not ideal.
