Working Elsewhere not showing in the Outlook 2016 Scheduling Assistant

    Question

  • I have a customer trying to use the option working elsewhere to alert others that she is not in the office and working elsewhere.  Although she chooses that, it still does not show when people attempt to see her free/busy time in the scheduling assistant.  Has anyone had any success using this feature?

    We are using Outlook 2016.

  • Hi Liela M. Fuller,

    As far as I know, this is by design that no free/busy information will display if you choose Working Elsewhere. Please refer to this article.

    A fix is being deployed in the service. In the meantime, you can use Outlook Web App (OWA) to schedule the meeting as a workaround or you can ask the user in Exchange Online with Working Elsewhere availability to switch it to Free or Busy.

    Thank you for your understanding and support.

    Regards,

    Perry
