We have created a Team without first creating an O365 Group. 

 

We would now like to retrospectavely associate the Team with a Group so we can use the Group's share Outlook calendar.

 

Is this possible?

Hi!
By creating a team you have already created a group behind the scenes!!
But it won’t show in Outlook by default since it was created from Teams!

You can get to the calendar by going to the files tab -> click ... -> open in SharePoint -> Now you are in the groups Team site which is one of the workloads created with a group :) Click conversations in the left menu and it will take you to the group inbox, with the calendar included!

You might also set up the group calendar webpart on the itself to see events from the calendar! Then add it as a SharePoint tab in Teams! Just an

In order to make it visible in Outlook you need to Use PowerShell:

Set-UnifiedGroup -Identity Team1 -HiddenFromExchangeClientsEnabled:$False
To add to what Adam said - if you already had an existing group, then you created another one by creating the Team - you now have 2 groups - probably with similar names.

If that is the case, you probably want to delete the Team (the one just created) - then create the team again, but this time, from the existing (original) group:

To answer your question. No Not possible :p

@Rob Ellis Hi Rob,

This is helpful. But how can I create an outlook group from existing teams group because in my case I don't want to delete teams group as it already has a lot of information in there.
