View a contact's calendar directly from the chat tab
I often want to start / schedule a meeting with one of my contacts visible via the teams' chat tab/interface. To do that I have to open my outlook calendar and then check their availability from there. Maybe a calendar look-up facility could be added to the team chat to allow a potential meeting participant's calendar to be checked.
I am wanting that right now and was searching around the interernet. I have a lot of people that I talk with...and some are in a lot of meetings. It would be a lot easier to see their availability from the chat window than have to go through Outlook and schedule a meeting.
I sometimes want to just chat with people without setting up a meeting. I would still like to see someone's schedule before I might send them a message. I am mostly concerned with starting conversations right before they have a meeting that starts.

Alternatively, when clicking the more options menu dots on a contact, have a menu item for "see availability" which brings up a scheduling assistant like display.
