My understanding is that when you create a Team in Teams it creates an O365 group. That does not appear to the case. At least from ther perspective of other ways of creating O365 Groups and the resources that are instantiated.

 

When I create an O365 group I expect a SharePoint site, a group Exchange Calendar, Notebook, a Plan and email address for Conversations.

 

I know it doesn't add the email to the GAL. Which most of our users want (they don't want it in the GAL). Which is good. 

 

When you go to the SharePoint site that is created it still allows you to create the standard group links to Planner, Calendar, etc... but they seem to all go no where, excpet Conversations which does work (ironic as Teams has it's own mechanism for this) and Notebook works. 

 

Is this how it is supposed to work? Or do I have some setting off. I noticed in the Admin center there is a setting on the Teams created groups that is off but is on with standard O365 Groups called "Subscribe members". Is this part of the isssue?

 

Is this by design? Any notion why?

Is it possible to create a group Calendar for these team created groups?

Hi!
Teams itself doesnt have a calendar but it had a outlook calendar! So the group is hidden from outlook by default! As tou Said you can go to it by clicking conversations from the SharePoint site and then from outlook access the group calendar like any other outlook cal! You can also make the group visible from outlook by running a powershell command:

Follow the steps in the comments here:

So because it is hidden from Outlook I can't see it anywhere?

It doesn't even show up in the "Group Calendar" web part on the SharePoint site that is part of that group.

I know Teams doesn't have the calendar but the O365 group should.

I'm giving it a shot. Thanks!

Well it should show up on the group calendar web part! I’ve used this many times for a integration with teams! I add the webpart on the sp site and then add the site as a tab in teams!

There are also a better integration with the group cal in the works according to this uservoice here:

@Eric Adler I know when we create a team using the Teams admin center, the group does appear in the Outlook client by default.   Clicking the group gives you access to the calendar, SharePoint site, & Notebook.   It is frustrating that the group/team calendar isn't integrated into the Teams app yet.   That is a big hang up for a lot of our users.   

 

As mentioned above you can use PowerShell to unhide any groups that are hidden.   In our case we went through and hide ones that we didn't want to appear for the users in their Outlook client.  

Set-UnifiedGroup -Identity TeamName -HiddenFromExchangeClientsEnabled:$false
