  2. Recurring Meetings

    When setting up recurring meetings, there should be an option to skip weekends. We are on a rotating block schedule during distance learning, so using the custom "meet every 2 days" setting works, however, it still sets meetings on the weekends.

  4. customize button to schedule/ duplicate meeting times

    I'm struggling to customize times for all of my classes. I have 6 classes 3 on A Day and 3 on B day but the schedule rotates. I want to copy the meeting credentials so I don't have too enter names each time. I want the group to repeat with customization of dates.

  5. I would like to be able to cancel future meetings in a series without deleting previous meetings.

    Cancel future repeats of meeting after term is over without deleting previous meetings. This would let students find the previous meetings' chat and links.

  6. Delete or close meetings that have already ended.

    To keep students from getting into the wrong meeting, have the meetings that have already passed or ended to be closed so they cannot join the wrong one.

  7. arrange another meeting from a previous Team meeting

    After holding a meeting scheduled via Teams, if a follow up meeting is required for that same set of people, there is not currently a button to schedule another meeting, or duplicate the meeting that has just taken place. A whole new meeting has to be set up from scratch or you have to go into Outlook calendar online to duplicate the meeting that way

  10. Using email distribution lists for Teams calendar invitations

    When I send a calendar invitation from a channel within Teams site I am unable to select email distribution lists from my Org Outlook list. I have noticed Teams only searches for individuals. I have also tried to use the name of the group membership using @, but no luck. My request is for Teams to be able to search for organisation email circulation lists. My department has 54 people.

  12. month view

    A monthly view in the calendar would be incredibly helpful. I'm very surprised that this simple option doesn't exist. Please add this

  13. Ability to mute (turn off / on) Team Calendar events as an Owner of multiple Teams

    As an Administrator, I need to have access to my teachers Teams (i.e. online classrooms), but I do not want to see all of their various Team calendar events on my Outlook Calendar (way too much info on my calendar.) I would like to have the option turn off or on a calendar view of any Team's classroom calendar on my end (on my personal Outlook Calendar) just as I can for any other shared calendar.

    Please help! I can't use my own calendar effectively because there is now too much on it and I can filter out Team calendar…

  14. Make it possible to disable email notification when creating a meeting in a channel

    You get a ton of email notifications if you have several lessons a day and create a meeting for each lesson in a channel.

    It would be nice if you could disable these emails when creating a meeting, so you don't get a notification email as the organizer of the meeting.

  15. Teacher ability to remove canceled meetings off students calendars

    Teachers should be able to remove manually canceled meetings from all student calendars. My youngest learners have a lot of canceled meetings on their calendars that are still showing up. Youngest learners do not know how to access their email to remove these calendar invites, so teacher should be able to manually remove them for their students

  19. Auto-Accept Meeting Events in Calendar

    Please add a feature to auto accept teams/outlook meeting invites on the web browser, it makes it much easier for school and I'm sure it would be good for businesses as well that don't use the outlook desktop app.
