When I have a shared calendar, typically we use it to share meetings, vacation and more within our group.
When I go to create a new Teams meeting, it does not include any call in information - and the meeting doesn't seem to work. Does Teams fully support creating a full teams meeting in a shared calendar?
What is the work around - kind of a big deal.

@Christopher Hoard, I have this same problem, and I did convert the user, but I am still not able to create teams meetings. How long should it take before the shared mailbox pieces leave the account?

I had to wait for about 3 hours before the teams meetings started to get notifications. However, I was able to find a better solution. It turns out that if you create a Team (office 365 group) those accounts do allow you to send calendar invitations from those calendars. They even give you the full Microsoft Teams audio conferencing options. I believe it uses the license of the individual that is creating the invitation, as the invitations from User Name on behalf of TeamName.

@justjeffYesterday we discovered how to do this on our Hybrid Exchange and it works as long as the person trying to create a meeting in the shared mailbox/calendar has delegate or ownership of it.
Step one: Check that you have delegate, owner, full access or at least editor permissions on it.
Step two: If you have previously added the mailbox/calendar to your Outlook using account settings/ Change/ more settings/ advanced/ add mailbox: Make sure you remove it. You may need to close & restart Outlook before doing the next step.
Step three: Open Outlook and go to File and click on Account Settings again this time click on new and add the name of the shared calendar or mailbox and click connect and OK.
Step four: Close and restart Outlook
You should see the mailbox in your folder list.
In previous MS Exchange versions you would have had to create a new Outlook profile to get into a Mailbox added this way but now you don't have to. It lets you use it without having to exit your own mailbox profile.
Now when you open the Calendar for that shared mailbox you will be able to create meetings and invite attendees.
Hope this helps.

How would this allow you to schedule a Teams meeting (with dial-in info and 'join' button) using a shared mailbox?

I had the same problem but luckily instructions mentioned in the below post resolved the issue.

@jafreesimilar problem here. someone has full access to another persons mailbox and can't create teams meetings from inside outlook.
They can open the calendar and create a new entry, but as soon as they clicked the Teams meeting button and enter the message body input field a message that the connection to the server can't be established. Calendar entries and meetings in outlook are creatable, just not with teams added.
it's a server teams client and an on-premise exchange if that's helpful. Doing teams on behalf of themselves work, just not on behalf of others.
EDIT: Seems that full access doesn't means sendas...

@konstii About your Edit, are you saying it works now?
There is Full Access isn't send as, that's right.

I just created a UserVoice request for that one: https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/322590-outlook-for-windows-desktop-application/suggestions/4226...
(still awaiting moderator approval as of right now).
Feel free to vote!

@sre4ever it seems that it still needs approval of a moderator on UserVoice... Let's wait a moment.
I also did one just to clarify and strenghten the case: https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/322590-outlook-for-windows-desktop-application/suggestions/4234...

@ndrfillmore This works for me as well. Thank you for the explanation that it uses the license of the individual that is creating the invitation, as the invitations from User Name on behalf of TeamName. Usually only the meeting organiser can do some actions, like create breakout rooms, and I was wondering who gets those rights if it is created from a shared calendar.
