how to change busy/free time default from busy to free in calenda



  • 1. Weekends uncompressed-printing monthly view as two-page spread?
    I figured out how to print the monthly view as a two-page spread but it automatically compresses the weekend. I have the "uncompress weekends" box checked and in the one page monthly view they aren't compressed, but for the two page per month it seems to default to that. Since this is a church calendar, weekends are very busy days for us and I need it to be a full day and not compressed. Can anyone help me with this?
  • 2. How do I merge appointments?
    I'm a college student. As such, I have several recurring appointments as classes. The only problem is that they may recur on different days on different times. I know how to set up reccurring appointments for different days. However, I have a class that occurs on Tues from 12-1:50 and on Wed. from 1-2:50. Another class meets on Mon & Thrs. from 9-9:50 and on Fri. 10-10:50. Any thoughts?
  • 3. A user's Calendar events are deleting themselves after their occu.
    We have a PC that is running Office 2003 - after an event has occurred and the time has passed - the event deletes itself from the Calendar, therefore we have no record of any of our meetings or appointments. Any help is much appreciated
  • 4. Can I check if a colleague has looked at my calendar
    Is there a way to check if a colleague on the same computer server has looked at my calendar

Publish 2 months free/busy information on the Server. Update free/busy

I don't know why this is here. I have never shared my calendar except with 
my pda. Thanks for looking into this.

2.Busy Time Events Change to Free Time

I have two recurring all-day events on my calendar in OL2003. The events
occur for four straight days every other week (basically my work schedule - 
work Tues to Fri one week and Wed to Sat the next). In the options for the
series, I set up the time to be marked as Busy, so that it will show up on
monthly views of the calendar as a day containing an event. I do synch my
calendar with ActiveSync to an IPAQ and back to another computer running

For some reason though, these two recurring events frequently lose their
Busy status and revert back to Free. I do not change the status at any time
on either PC or my PocketPC. Does anyone have any ideas about this? Is there
something I am doing that inadvertently changes the Busy status?


Today's problems don't worry me,
I haven't solved yesterday's yet.

3.Default Free/Busy Calendar time

I put a GPO in a few months ago to change the default free/busy time in 
outlook so that some of the Administrative Assistants could schedule things 
on their boss's calendars up to 4 months in advance.

Since the time change/DST this gpo has stopped working.

Has anyone seen this?

The users haven't moved OU's, they haven't been upgraded, the GPO hasn't 

If I'm posting this in the wrong group can someone point me the right way?

4.'Free Time' changes to Busy on other user's caledar

Using Outlook 2000 with Oracle server (not Exchange)....

I am creating a 3 day 'all day event' appointment in my calendar and setting 
the time as 'free'.  When I invite someone to the appointment so that they 
will have that on their calendar as well, the time switches to 'busy' on that 
person's calendar.  If I invite a user to a single 'all day event' with the 
time set as 'free', the appointment shows correctly on their calendar and 
stays as 'free'.   

In addition, if that person tries to change the time on their calendar from 
'busy' to 'free', Outlook says that it is sending a response to the creator 
that they made a change, but the time still will not change to 'free' on 
their calendar.

5.change my free/busy time

How can I change my free/busy time in Outlook to show that I'm not available 
after 4PM.  Normal office hours are 8 to 5, but I leave at 4.  I'd like to 
show that I'm not available from 4 to 5.  I've had to set up a recurring 
meeting from 4 to 5 that has me out of the office. But, there should be an 
easier way to do this.  

6. Appointments not shown, but on the free busy tab, it says busy

7. Tentative always shows up as Busy when publishing Free/Busy to a file share

8. Busy Time Switches to Free Time
