  3. Attendees in calendar invite

    Need to be able to add everyone as attendees for a calendar invite from a channel by either selecting the team or channel in attendees field or by copy paste from word or excel. Right now it is laborious having to manually copy and paste each email into attendees (most of my attendees are guests). Need to ensue it gets into their emails and calendars. Not everyone is used to technology or Teams.

  4. Remove cancelled meetings from calendar

    When a meeting is cancelled it should be automatically removed from the calendar making it easier to find your meetings than having to look through several meetings which most might be cancelled.

  5. Assignments and Meetings on Calendar

    It would make student's learning easier if we can see our assignments in our calendar and be able to see what meetings we have on which day. Also, we could click the meeting in the calendar and it takes us into the meeting. It would also be great if our outlook calendar transferred to our teams calendar so planning is smooth and we dont have to look in more than one place to complete our planning. It would also be great if there is a screenshot setting, so students can screenshot while a presenter is presenting.

  6. Please, Please allow people to change the organiser of a meeting or have more than one organiser.

    It should be vital to be able to be able to change organiser or add organisers so that someone can still start the meeting and control the meeting options should the original organiser be sick / leave the company. I am unable to use most aspects of teams because the two other people in my team aren't alowed access to the meeting options.

  9. english language with 24 hour time notation

    We are located in the Netherlands and use the 24h time notation (23:20) and we communicate in English, for this we use English (US). However in Teams if you select English (US) you automatically get the 12h AM/PM time and you cannot change it. If I want the 24h time notification I need to select Dutch but then my Teams client will operate in the Dutch language which I do not want.
    So please create two different settings. One for the language and one for the time format.

  11. Add calendar view option for Next 7 Days

    Add an option to change the calendar to display the "Next 7 Days". This feature is already available in Outlook. I typically use the Week view but as the week progresses, more and more of the display is wasted.

  12. display of due assinments

    Every single student, in order to check or look up any assinments has to enter EVERY SINGLE team they are in. Therefore it is easy to miss a due date because you didn't enter a specific teams. Students on many occations get surprised when their undone homework is sent back to them, until then they don't realise one existed. So by putting each due assinment in a grid or calendar it would be visually easy to see if you have anu homewok for the given day. You won't have to access every single team, all of them are on one,…

  13. Live event calendar invite

    At the moment it seems that in the Live Event setup, a calendar invite is not automatically sent in the creation of the event.
    It would be great to have that feature included in the setup.

  15. Add Group Calendar w/ Calendar Tab in Teams that is specific to the Team; not a culmination of private calendars.

    Many teams have due dates or calendar items that are unique to the specific team. It would be nice to be able to add a Calendar tab to Teams that would allow this activity to occur. I don't want to integrate personal Outlook calendars with the team calendar. I want to be able to have a blank calendar specific to the Team that we can post Team-related information on. Does not need to Sync with anything else.

  16. time zones

    In the Outlook Desktop app you can have up to three time zones. Teams is designed for meetings that can span the planet, so why not add this in?

  17. Auto Delete Meetings

    Students are struggling to manage their calendars. When a teacher changes a meeting or when they are move to a new class, all the meetings are still on their calendar. It's really confusing. It would be nice when a student is removed from a team or when a teacher deletes meetings if it would be removed from the student calendar.

  18. default to attendees

    It would be nice if when we could make all students attendees from the initial scheduling page and not have to go back in and change that setting. It is easier to make one student a presenter than it is to make everyone an attendee.
