  1. Linking the Teams Calendar to Apple/Samsung Calendar app.

    It’ll be so much easier to see when my lessons are if I can see it on my Calendar app, rather than the calendar on Teams.

  2. 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.

  4. Canvas Calendar

    Hello! I am scheduling meetings through external tools on Canvas. However, the meetings do not show up on my Microsoft Teams calendar even though it is asking for dates and times. I am having to go into both calendars. Please help streamline the process.

  5. Start work week on Sunday

    It seems that Teams has realized that some people's weekend is Fridays and Saturday. That's already an accomplishment so thank you! However, in the application the week still starts on Mondays, then has Fridays and Saturdays as the weekend kinda awkwardly in the middle, and Sundays at the end of the week. We start on Sundays!!! So can we please move them to the beginning of the week?!

    Oh and while you're at it: Please also make sure that this feature reflects into the setting of meeting series. Because if you schedule a meeting to occur every working week day,…

  7. Add colour options to MS Teams agenda

    Would be extremely helpful to add colours to the Microsoft Teams Agenda. In this way, students and teachers (and working professionals) are able to make the agenda more personal.

    Example:
    - Purple for meetings
    - Green for deadlines
    - Red for private things (and an option to ‘mark as private’)
    - Blue for personal notes on my agenda

  9. My art class is on a A/B Day rotation, can we get a calendar where we can choose multiple dates that are random for meetings?

    I would like to click on multiple dates for my classes. I run on A/B days. One wee I teach MWF and the next Tu/Thurs. It would be nice to just click on each day that I have them and schedule all of the classes one time instead of each one individually. Also, in each class I have to manually go in and change each one to be me as the presenter only. I click on manage and it takes me to a safari, then I have to copy the link and go to firefox to change each class. Can…

  10. Alarms for the classes on the calendar, for little kids not to miss their classes.

    There should be an alarm for when classes are to begin, because little kids go to the restroom or do something between classes and they get distracted.

  11. complex time scheduling with different times and days.

    Teams Scheduling
    The option to change the time is not there. For example I would like to setup a meeting
    on Mon 10:30 to 11:30
    Tue 11;30 to 12:30
    Thu : 8:30 to 9:30 for the next 3 months. I am not able to do that.

  13. More options for class meeting schedules

    Don't seem to be able to create a semi-complex weekly schedule for the class to meet. For instance, Can't make one meeting on Tuesdays and Thursdays @ 11. Instead, need to make two meetings the repeat weekly one for each of those days. In short, need a more complex meeting scheduler. Would also like to be able to flag a meeting overall as optional

  14. organize assignments

    I think that on the calendar we should be able to see all of our assignments, not just when meetings are scheduled.

  15. Ability to duplicate event to another date

    The ability to duplicate an event to another date. This would save having to insert all the invitees again.

  16. Teams Diary

    Have a Teams Diary (or Calendar) that all staff in the school / organisation can access, and add/edit events. Currently we use Google Calendar but Teams and O365 for everything else. Would be fantastic to have a Teams Diary so all staff can access the one platform. Thanks.

  19. You should definitely put assignments in your calendar because that would make it so much easier to see all assignments at the same time.

    It would be good if you could automatically add ASSIGNMENTS into the CALENDAR because therefore it would be easy to see all assignments together and what date and day they are for!
