View your personal calendar

Select Calendar on the left side of the app to view all upcoming meetings and appointments. Switch between a day, work week, or full week view—the menu is located on the top right corner of the app below the New meeting button.

In the top left corner you'll find the month and year, select that to change your calendar view to any date, past or future. Select Today to get back to the current day/week.

The calendar shows you everything that was scheduled in Teams, Exchange, or Outlook.

Select a specific meeting to get details about it. From there you can:

  • Join the meeting
  • View calling details
  • View and chat with participants
  • Respond to the meeting invitation
  • Cancel the meeting if you're the organizer


Add a shared calendar to a channel 

  1. Select Add a tab at the top of the channel
  2. Select Channel calendar from the list of apps available, or search for it from the search bar at the top right corner
  3. Give the calendar a name and select Add

Now that you have a shared calendar, you can add meetings that all members can join. However, guests won't be able to view the calendar, so they'll need to be invited directly.


Things to know about channel calendars

  • To add a channel event to your personal calendar, open the event and select Add to calendar.
  • Channel members won’t receive a direct invite unless you add their names individually.
  • Each time you schedule an event it will create a post in the channel with a summary of the event details.
  • Only members who’ve turned on notifications for that channel will receive a notification that an event was created.
  • Channel events can only be scheduled and viewed from the Teams app.
  • A channel calendar is a filtered view of the Microsoft 365 group calendar that is associated with the team. It only shows the events for a specific channel and not the entire team.
  • You must be following the team's corresponding Microsoft 365 group in Outlook to receive the invite in your personal calendar.
