  2. Group calendar visible in Teams with Calendar Tab in Teams

    I see that a group calendar shows up in Outlook online when a group is created in Teams. Could this calendar be accessible directly from Teams?

    The team is making progress on showing Office 365 group calendars in Teams. We will share more details as we have them.

    Meanwhile, feel free to share what types of meetings do you create in the group calendars for classes and staff?

  3. I really need a class calendar! This way my whole class would be able to quickly see what is coming up for the month or view important dates

    If my class could see one calendar that I control, it would help the students and the parents stay on track.

  5. Ability to change the meeting calendar view to monthly

    In the meetings tab, the calendar shows the day, or a future day only. It would be nice to be able to chose a view that showed the full month for planning ahead.

  6. Assignments & Due Dates to Post in the Calendar; Color Coded Snapshot

    Assignment Color Coded Monthly Calendar (Snapshot)

    This would be a great feature to provide students a visual snapshot of assignments on a monthly calendar. Students could be able to manage time for various due dates, properly prioritize tasks, organize future communication and quickly access information.

    I also suggest to link the assignment title on the calendar to the assignment criteria when students click on it.

    And,if the assignments could be color coordinated that would be fantastic!!

    i.e. green assignments are completed, orange assignments are not completed, red assignments are late, purple assignments are assessments, yellow assignments are due that same…

  7. Meeting options - Set during scheduling

    In addition to being able to modify Meeting Options after a meeting is scheduled, it would be helpful to be able to set the meeting options at the time I am scheduling the meeting. This is an efficiency change because I could do this in one step instead of two since I would not have to go back into the meeting after scheduling it to update the Meeting Options.

    Please note, however, that I would still want you to keep the meeting option setting as it is today available for me to change something after scheduling the meeting if I…

  8. Meeting options/lobby feature/MULTIPLE presenters

    A place in the meeting options after you schedule a meeting to add another presenter prior to the actual meeting starting. (We want to use the lobby feature but if the teacher who schedules/sets that up and then is gone, we are screwed... no one else can start the meeting, everyone is stuck in the lobby with no one to let them in.)

  9. teams, shifts, planner, and outlook calendar need to sync

    Teams, shifts, planner, and outlook need to sync. Ideally they would sync into a calendar that you can toggle views for each. This would help with scheduling and task management. I shouldn't have to open 4 different Microsoft applications to complete scheduling.

  10. Sync outlook calendar with Teams Calendar

    I'm trying to sync my school outlook calendar to my teams calendar. However, it seem like I cannot do it. In saying that, my teams calendar syncs to my outlook calendar.

    Can we possibility look at getting this integrated?

  12. Only allow meeting owners to begin and end meetings. We are having problems with pupils starting meetings really early.

    Allow only meeting owners to start and end meetings so pupils cannot begin without the teacher present or carry on chatting afterwards.

  13. adding assignments with their due date

    i think you should add the assignments given to students on the calendar showing the due dates and giving the students a reminder a day before the assignment is due.

  15. Color coding in Teams Calendar from Outlook Calendar

    I color code items in my Outlook Calendar to keep multiple tasks/events organized, but the Teams Calendar doesn't show color. This would be very helpful as I would like to use Teams as my one-stop place, but it is hard to differentiate tasks/events by groups, without opening the Calendar event.

  16. Adding individual Outlook calendars to Teams

    Adding individual Outlook calendars to Teams, but do not allow students see all my calendars. I like being able to make changes in Outlook and have the changes show in Teams. I might want one calendar in multiple Teams, but never want students to see my calendar of shared teacher calendars.

  18. The biggest complaint we get from students and parents is not being able to see due dates of assignments on the calendar.

    Right now we can only see meetings in the calendar. Parents and students are requesting to also see their due dates for assignments. They have several teams to jump back and forth to see assignments. This would make things much more manageable.

  19. Show calendars from each team in the personal calendar app

    My students are in a lot of different teams (up to 15 teams possible). Each team uses a calendar. So the student has to check a lot of different calendars. It would be perfect if each student has his/her events from all teams collected in a personalized calendar.

  20. Have the due date of assignments also post in calendar for students

    Once the teacher posts an assignment, have the due date post on student calendar.
