I work with a  group of 170 students and recently began using the calendar feature as a way to publish events for the group. Some of these events are applicable to all members. Some events are applicable to some members. I am now seeing all of these events on my outlook calendar, and I am sure our group is too. Is there a way to disconnect this Teams calendar from Outlook calendars?

Hello @sew110   According to this post on our answers.microsoft.com tech support site, it's not possible to unsync the two calendars: Unsync Teams and Outlook Calendars - Microsoft Community

 

What you might consider is creating two (or how ever many) separate private channels for each group and creating channel meetings specifically for that group.  The other group of students won't see or have access to the channel meetings. Tip: Meet in a channel - Office Support (microsoft.com)

@ThereseSolimeno Our group is having major issues with new Channel and new Channel calendar syncing everyone's calendar items (no direct invites) directly to everyone's personal calendar.  This is causing excessive items on personal Outlook desktop calendar and when "declined" fortunately still stay on the channel calendar.  We have another Team that has the same set up, but the items do not sync to everyone's personal Outlook desktop calendar unless they are individually invited.  Why are these operating differently?  Thanks.
