The new channel calendars for Teams is great but it appears you cannot add one to a private channel.  I know a Teams private channel is a separate SharePoint site with unique permissions, but is there a way to add a channel calendar to a private channel?

I found the answer and it is not possible since private channels don’t have a group mailbox.

Calendar is not the only feature missing for private channels, it seems we cannot add a planner too :(
Are those features planned ?

1. Create the calendar in the sharepoint page behind your Teams channel.  (Settings cog, add an app, calendar)

2.  Copy the URL for the calendar.

3.  In the private teams channel, add an app.  Choose Website.  Paste URL.  

@fl4gr4nt this did the trick, thanks!

@Farid_Gutierrez 

My pleasure, happy to assist :).

Hi,
Your step 3 please can you say where is the ability to "Choose Website" as I can't seem to see it

 

Don't worry, I was looking in Sharepoint, not in Team app, now all's working, thanks for your information about this :lol:

I know this is an old thread, but wondering if the fact that I don't have "calendar" available when trying to add an app to Sharepoint is due to administrative lockdown settings, or if these steps have since changed/stopped being supported by Microsoft. I have. very few apps available in the default view, and there's no native Microsoft calendar in the Sharepoint Store when I search.
hi, got any answers to your question?

Are you ensuring that you are in the classic view?

I'm not sure what point you were at when trying to add the app but I know that I need to be in the classic experience before I see the normal old sharepoint apps we have available.
