23.6. Use Free/Busy Information

If colleagues have not released their calendars for viewing, it is still possible to determine when they have not entered any other appointments in their calendars, to organize a common appointment. This information is available through the free/busy system.

Before the free/busy data can be used, the correct address must first be specified in Outlook, so it can be retrieved. Proceed as follows:

23.6.1. Outlook 2010 to 2019

  1. In Outlook, go to File and select Options.

  2. Go to the Calendar section.

  3. Now click on the Free/Busy Options button.

  4. Enter the search path into Search location.

    The address is https://intra.net.lan/freebusy/%NAME%@%SERVER%.ifb.

    Use the name of the Intra2net system and enter the address as shown here.

    Since the Intra2net system automatically generates the free/busy information, the Publish at location check box must be unchecked.

23.6.2. Outlook 2007

  1. In Outlook, go to Extras and select Options.

  2. Click on the Calendar Options button.

  3. Now click on the Free/Busy Options button.

    The address is https://intra.net.lan/freebusy/%NAME%@%SERVER%.ifb.

    Use the name of the Intra2net system and enter the address as shown here.

    Since the Intra2net system automatically generates the free/busy information, the Publish at location check box must be unchecked.
