  1. When needing a meeting, I should be able to select a 'team' not just individuals.

    There should be an option to select an entire team to a meeting, not have to select individuals. This could be in the more options dots, and on the calendar 'Add team'

  2. organize assignments

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

  3. calander dates

    Hi, can you make a calendar for all the assignments due that week so say you have 5 assignments for each class and you want to figure out when this is due and how many weeks you have to turn it in and so there would be a button that said assignment calendar and when you touch it it would say which week would you like to choose and when you fill that in. Then, you see all the assignments due that week and that's it i would like to be in teams.

  4. Tidying up the calendar

    My calendar is full of cancelled events (strikethrough but still taking up space) - why not just clear an event if it's cancelled? Or give an option to clear it, at least!?

  5. With a calendar as a guide, instead of the activity tab.

    I have a suggestion for the "Microsoft Teams" application that would be a calendar as a guide in the application, because, far from learning, many students have many lessons to deliver and have no organization to deliver everything, and this calendar will improve the organization in the application , because the "Activity" tab is very confusing. That's all. I wait return of the feedback.

  6. Setup Up A Teams Meeting in Outlook

    Setting up a teams meeting is not intuitive. Current practice by most here create the calendar meeting item in Outlook and embed a Zoom Meeting link for Teams Meeting. When we scheduled a meeting, it's too bad that there is not option to indicate that this a Teams Meeting.

    Even within the Teams environment, it's not necessary apparent that we are going to use Teams!

  7. Add a user's calendar to their tabs in the Chat view

    It would be useful to be able to view a persons visible appointments from their outlook calendar in a Tab in the Chat view for that person. Otherwise you need to go back to Outlook to check their availability.

  9. Give an option to fix calendar to display preferred times only

    The calendar shows whole days (0:00 to 23:59), with highlighted background between 9:00 and 17:00, which is nice, but I would like to be able to set the start and end times myself, and limit the view of the calendar between, say, my preferred 8:00 and 15:00. I would also like to see the calendar always in the same place, not automatically scrolled down as the time progresses (e.g. at 16:15 it shows between 14:45 and 22:45 - most of which is empty). The automatic scrolling is probably reasonable in "Day" display, but in "Work week" or "Week" the scrolling…

  10. 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.

  12. Automatically Clear Calendar

    It would be very helpful to have a button that could clear a full day/week/month of events on a calender

  13. Change color of meetings in the past

    It would be nice if calendar meetings could turn a different color after they have occurred. There could be a preset color, or the organizer could color code meetings - those that were successful, those that need follow up, those that went over time, those that were spontaneous, etc.

  14. Add a date

    During this time we're having several team meetings. We've been scheduling extra meetings. I would like the option to go into a current meeting and ADD additional dates. We often end our meeting with "let's meet again next week". Currently, I have to go into the calendar on the next date and add every attendee again. The address book isn't linked to my contact groups, so I have to remember all 20+ people to invite.

  15. Option to view completed tasks on the calendar in Planner

    For those that like to see a historical view of all tasks (both in progress and completed) on the calendar in planner, this would be a nice feature.

  16. be able to block off time in the Teams calendar and not necessarily by booking a meeting.

    using the Teams calendar, it would be beneficial to be able to block off time for appointments as well when already in the calendar.

  17. Calendar functionality

    Is there a way for us to be able to copy a calendar entry (with all the attendees and meeting settings - like teacher only presenter etc) to paste in a new lesson slot, rather than recreating it every time? In South Africa we don't see our classes at the same time every day, so a repeat function doesn't work.
    Can we customise our lesson slots to for our lesson times? For example, our lessons are 45 minutes long, starting at 7.40am with two breaks during the day. Can we customise our work hours to make it easier to input…

  18. Merge calendar for different teams

    Could be a great idea give the capability of "merge" multiple teams calendar in another team's calendar.
    This because there could be 1 "Master" team for a class and multiple Teams one for a different course.
    Having different calendars make almost impossible to sync activities because i could not be able to know other team's meeting.

  19. Calendar syncing with documents

    It would be ideal if teachers could add documents in the calendar that could be seen by the pupils linked to that class in their calendar. IS this possible. Our calendars are taken from SIMS and shown in Teams for staff and pupil. eg if i have Year 9 set 1 for Spanish. That appears in all of the pupils claendars but I can't share files with them here. This would mean that pupils could keep track using a timeline of the lessons they are meant to access the work?
