New Calendar App replaces Meetings App In Teams, but when?


Roadmap item "Featured ID 48516" is missing in action.  The description says "We'll begin rolling this feature out in early March 2019." The roadmap says it is due for release October of this calendar year.  It is now November 2020.


Can we get an update on the long-awaited improvements to the Calendar app in Teams?

Those are not the same thing. They are working on a solutions for calendars. The roadmap item and app on the rail are just a UI improvement, not related to group / shared calendars.

@Chris Webbperhaps, but the roadmap still shows this as in development, not rolled out or rolling out.

Hi, I confirm we already have the calendar app with the create a meeting label. We haven't longer the meetings app.



@Matthew Frahm , Your comment says " It is now November 2020. ", but for some reason the time stamp above your name says 11-01-2019.  Was there a typo in your post, or is the forum time stamp wrong?
I'm curious b/c it is now January 2021, and my organization still doesn't see the calendar app (as a tab, that is; we see "calendars" in the navigation), though per this video it should be available:

There is a brand new Team feature that allows you to add shared calendars to Teams channels and it's called Channel Calendar. No more setting up SharePoint...
