A lot of people are now relying on Microsoft Teams for work. And, it is very important to get on top of everything in your group with the help of a reliable calendar system. The good thing is Microsoft has a built-in calendar feature right within MS Teams and it syncs to Outlook. The calendar contains the list of meeting schedules for your current team.
However, many users have been complaining that the calendar tab on their Microsoft Teams client or the web app is missing or not showing up. Some experienced the issue after updating the MS Teams app while others just got the missing calendar problem without doing anything.
In this post, we will discuss how to troubleshoot and fix the issue with the calendar on Microsoft Teams. Hopefully, it will help you get back on track with your scheduled meetings.
How to Fix Missing Calendar App on Microsoft Teams Web and Desktop Client
Below are some methods you can try to get back your calendar tab on MS Teams. Some of the reasons that cause this issue include changes on the Related Policy for your team, disabled Web Services Protocol, or revoked access to on-premises mailboxes if you are using cloud services.
Add the Calendar App on Microsoft Teams Again
Someone from your organization might have changed the settings and accidentally removed the calendar app for your team. This issue can happen for MS Teams users with enterprise or business accounts.
To fix the issue, you need to have an admin access for your team. Follow this guide to turn on the MS Teams calendar again.
- Sign in to Microsoft Teams Admin Center as a Microsoft Office 365 administrator.
- On the left corner of the home screen, click Users, and choose your account.
- Select the Policy tab for your account.
- Go to Global (Org-wide Default) under the App setup policy section to show the list of apps.
- Click the Add Apps button and select the Calendar app.
- Restart your MS Teams desktop client to see the Calendar tab.
- Ask everyone in your team to do the same.
Verify the Exchange Web Services Protocol Settings using PowerShell
If the first method failed to bring back the calendar tab on MS Teams, you need to check and verify that the Exchange Web Services is enabled. To do so,
- Search for the Windows PowerShell tool on the Start Menu.
- Right-click on the app and select Run as Administrator.
- Next, copy-paste this command in PowerShell and hit Enter to see the client access settings on your mailboxes.
- Get-CASMailbox “Identity Name” | fl ews*
- Check the status of EwsEnabled. If it is set to “false”; set it to “true” using the following command.
- Set-CASMailbox “Identity Name” -EwsEnabled $True
Once done, Exchange Web Services Protocol will now be enabled for your organization which in turn enables the calendar feature in Microsoft Teams.
If you still can’t find the calendar tab in your Microsoft Teams desktop client or the web app, there might be a possibility that your team administrator has disabled the calendar specifically for you. Check with your team admin to verify any permission issues that might cause this problem.STILL HAVING ISSUES? Try this tool to troubleshoot Windows errors and safely optimize system performance
