I have a scenario where I need to copy a full calendar from Outlook to Teams Calendar.

 

We have a Outlook Calendar that was setup and started to be used but now we have started to adopt Microsoft Teams and a new Microsoft Teams Team setup and now the team wants to use the Calendar associated with the new 'Team' .

Is there a way to copy all the entries from the Outlook Calendar to the Teams Calendar?

When we just tried to drag and drop we are just getting the error  "cannot copy  the items - you don't have the Appropriate permissions?

 

I'm the owner of the group, but also have full global admin access. Given myself full access to the Sharepoint site.

What am I missing or are we just unable to copy from outlook to teams?

 

I've not got any further thoughts on what to change or do so any help or suggestions would be gratefully received, thank you.

No way to do this afaik, but you should be able to add a tab pointing to the Calendar. Though if I remember correctly, there were some issues with that method and the new OWA interface. But a quick test against my own Calendar seems to work, so try it.

Calendars don't have their own view anymore, so that's what is breaking trying to add a group calendar into a tab. With the OWA change, they really made most calendar options not very viable inside of Teams.

I still like the SharePoint calendar most, but your restricted to the Desktop client when using it. You used to be able to sync the calendar to Outlook, then copy calendar contents across, but last I checked it was opening in read only for sync, so not sure if it supports that anymore.
