The ability to show multiple Outlook 365 Calendars in Teams Calendar Tab
I have multiple Outlook Calendars that in Outlook, I can view all of these. I think it would be great to have the same functionality in Teams.
+1 vote from me. Ridiculous that Teams only shows the one personal calendar, I'm busy booking meetings via teams and simultaneously checking my actual availability on outlook. Not exactly optimal.
Total agreement here. I have (with great efficiency) used multiple work domains (including subfolders I have established under my main calendar folder, for things like kid schedules and volunteer time, so I know I'm balancing life properly). I've done this for at least 5 years now, I htink. On top of that, I myself (putting aside anyone else's) have 3 organizations where I have an oversight/leadership role. I maintain these multiple calendars in OL by simply checkboxing an additional one, overlaying them, and I have a fantastic single view of life, with easy ability to click.
I believe this is a tenancy issue that has plagued Teams generally, where you have to switch between tenants, rather than have them all reside in one interface. Definitely the one main drawback of Teams, and I've heard all sorts of crazy workarounds people do (multiple browsers, in addition to desktop app running, private windows WITHIN those browsers to allow yet another logon). All crazy ideas that have had to be implemented bc a seemingly existing MS functionality (as noted, OL has this already) hasn't been translated into Teams. Even if the Sharepoint capabilities were still limited (meaning, you still had to switch between orgs to see the full Teams functionality), seems like using the calendar portion in a way that reflects OL client (where you can add multiple accounts, and have the UI reflect a singular view of them) would be the most straightforward starting point for getting this embedded into Teams. Again, you can always replace it with how the multi-tenant solution develops for SP...but for now, give us SUMTHIN'! :)
With that said, I'll applaud the Teams folks in that they have VERY aggressively expanded this from where it was even a year ago. I also love how they basically sold into education so quickly, to get *********** into that ecosystem.
yes this is is a must! I love teams but have to toggle between outlook calendar in order to view all of my bosses schedules in order to set a meeting. The scheduling assistant is nice but it doesnt allow for enough visibility for me to make scheduling decisions based on it alone. This would make Teams be PERFECT for me and all in at my company I'm sure!

Ridiculous - must have!
1) Go to your calendar
2) Click on the "+New meeting" button
3) Switch to the "Scheduling Assistant" tab
4) Click "Add required attendees" and choose however many people you would like
5) You will be able to see what they have scheduled on one screen in a shared calendar
The feature is available in Outlook and its gets pretty time consuming to switch back and forth between Outlook and Teams.Would be nice to be able to do the same functions in one place.

Hi everyone! Have we received an answer on how to do this yet?
There was the trainig session Art of the Possible – Modern Executive Administration today from Microsoft and they already have this feature available for them. It would really help us dealing with several calendars.

I need to see all of my Outlook calendars when I make appointments, and schedule meetings, otherwise I double book, and don't want to use Teams again.

it would be very useful to view a shared outlook calendar in teams
As an admin, having access and showing multiple calendars is a part of my role to include conference room calendars for quick viewing of availability as meetings are scheduled for teams and others across the company who visits the site.
yes please, need more than one calendar to be functional in my role. thanks!
Anne E-B commented
yes, please - I need to be able to view multiple calendars at once. This would be a valuable feature.
In outlook I generally have up to 4 calendars open at any given time, sometimes more. For anyone who supports one or more other people (ie. any admin out there!) this is mandatory. Can't believe Teams launched without that feature when it's trying to be "collaborative". Please add asap.
I don't care about cute backgrounds when on a teams' call with colleagues. Please add the ability to show my outlook calendars in Teams. Thanks

Currently have a Customer with 3 Different Outlook Accounts, each with their own Calendar. In Outlook, my customer can manage all 3 in one view. This type of support in Teams would be beneficial to her and other customers we support at Microsoft.
I have multiple calendars in Outlook, and my business calendar is directed to my name instead of just "calendar." It would be nice to have the capability to view all calendars in Teams since I don't put calendar entries in the plain "calendar" folder. This is a huge disservice to me and my office since we all use the same format, and it renders the calendar feature useless.

This is a huge problem for lots of people, in my company we use a lot of shared e-mail accounts (group mail) due to shift work. 3 persons or more covering the same position. To be able to keep all updated we share a mail account for that position togheter with a calendar. All work related meetings is in the group mail calendar. as long as the shared calendar is not visible is Teams useless to us.
Hoping this feature will be fixed asap? Will there be a visual for the multiple calendars to be on Teams soon?
