How Demodesk reads your Office 365/Outlook.com calendar event status
When you use Office 365 calendar, it's possible to set your event status to Free, Working Elsewhere, Tentative, Busy, or Away/Out of office. In most cases, events are marked as Busy in your calendar, which ensures that people cannot double-book you. However, if you're out of the office or on holiday, you should update your status accordingly.
By default, Demodesk will consider you unavailable during events marked as Working Elsewhere, Tentative, Busy, or Away/Out of office. As a result, these times won't show up on your booking page or as unavailable in the Scheduler.
