How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Create teams meeting from calendar using OWA

When using calendar on OWA, there is no way to create a Microsoft Teams meeting. You need to create it from Microsoft Teams instead.

Please add the functionality to create a meeting from Calendar using OWA

The OWA team has added a “Teams meeting” toggle in the new meeting item, as a preview feature. If you’d like to try it out, please turn on ""the new Outlook" toggle in the upper right corner. We’ll set this to completed once it’s fully released by the OWA team.

Thanks!

    Not available in Outlook mobile either, yet Skype for business meeting scheduling is (like OWA. Assuming MS are using the same API for with SfB for OWA & Mobile.

    This is a much needed feature! We have many users who prefer to use a Web Browser only and this is a critical piece for Teams adoption.

    This is a huge piece missing from feature parity. A lot of our users rely on the webapp rather than the desktop one and this impacts their workflow.

    Very keen to see this come through soon. Good stuff it is now available on Windows and MacOS but we still have a large number of users who rely on OWA so they would like this too.

    Please add this functionality, some people do not prefer leaving the browser. Please stop rolling out functionality for one segment of users while leaving the rest of the users hanging. Mac users, web users functionality should have parity during rollout or you are confusing and fragmenting user bases.

    Its one of the pieces of Teams functionality that is still different to Skype for Business and problematic for E1 (OWA) users. Especially considering that there is currently an 'add Skype Meeting' button in OWA Calendar

    We need this feature. Outlook Web App should display an "Add Teams Meeting" in the calendar view.
