  1. Group calendar visible 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?

    This feature has now moved into the planning stage! I’ll keep you posted as I hear more.

  2. 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.

  4. Monthly meetings view

    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.

  5. 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.

  7. Outlook Calendar Option

    My Instructional Technology team would like to use Teams as a way to collaborate and share information on where we are each day in the district and the types of training we are offering on those days. We currently have a shared IT calendar in Outlook and we would like to link this calendar to our channel, but there is no way to do this. Would like to suggest adding this option.

  8. I cannot see a month at once in the calendar, only week by week

    Show the month in the calendar, it is worthless without this feature. A month view is in Outlook and other software, why would you leave it out? What are you even thinking?

  10. 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.

  12. Add a Calendar Tab in Teams

    It would be great to have a calendar tab in Teams that students can't edit. Currently, we can add a Planner tab, which includes a calendar, but students can edit it. With a calendar tab, teachers could post all activities, even those that aren't necessarily assignments, so that students and parents know what went on in class each day. This would be really helpful for absent students, and as a communication tool for parents.

  17. Scheduling Meetings from Calendar

    When using scheduling assistant for arranging meeting it would be useful to enter @team and for it then to prompt a time that whole team is free for meeting as opposed to searching per team member

  18. Create an Outlook Calendar when creating a Team

    There is a workaround with PowerShell, but having the option directly as a button is a big help.
