Hello,

I would like to connect Teams to my Outlook calendar so I could send invitations to people outside my company in order to set up a meeting for an interview. Thanks a lot for your help.

Hi @Marion2415

If you have a business account then Teams should connect to your Outlook calendar and you can use the Outlook add-in - see article here how to enable it in the Teams Admin Centre and steps to help if you do not see it

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/teams-add-in-for-outlook

On the other hand if you are using Teams Free then it does not integrate with your calendar and you do not have the Outlook Add In. You can however schedule meetings in Outlook via Teams

Hope that answers your question

Best, Chris

@Christopher Hoard Thanks very much for your help!
