Office 365 - Free/Busy lookup between UW System/Schools/Colleges and UW Health
We continue to improve calendaring interoperability between different Office 365/Exchange systems across UW System campuses. You now have the ability to view free/busy (also known as calendar availability) information for scheduling purposes.
What does it mean to see free/busy information?
When you add an attendee to your meeting request using their email address, you will now be able to see their free/busy information. This will allow you to view their availability prior to sending them the meeting request.
Which UW System/Schools/Colleges does this work with?
- UW-Eau Claire
- UW-Green Bay
- UW-River Falls
- UW-Stevens Point
- UW-Colleges & Extension
- UW-System Administration
Important: Free/Busy lookup is only available between UW-Madison's Office 365 and the systems above. The availability of this feature may not be an option between the systems listed above (e.g,. UW-Stout and UW-Extension).
Note: We continue to work with UW-Whitewater and UW-Oshkosh in setting up this calendaring partnership. Additionally, several of the UW-System institutions are in a state of transition to Office 365, so calendar free/busy lookups may not work with all recipients in those institutions.
