Is it possible to deny specific users the ability to access calendar in teams not just hide it?

Hi,

 

For me the best you are going to get is hide, because the Calendar in question is that of the user. So you would expect a user to be able to access their own calendar.

 

Sorry if I have misunderstood?

 

Thanks

 

Henry

@Stefan Åberg I believe it is not possible to block access to the calendar functionality, it is only possible to hide it with an App Setup Policy. https://admin.teams.microsoft.com/policies/app-setup

 

With it hidden, it is still possible for the user to access via the ellipsis menu as they are still permitted automatically due to their allocated licences. I have tried removing a user's Exchange licence which will remove Outlook from the app launcher but their calendar and appointments are still visible within Teams with or without hiding the Calendar app.
