Scheduling Assistant - Owners: Configuring Your Input

The Scheduling Assistant application allows users of Office 365 service to select which of their calendars should be queried for free/busy information.

To configure you're input calendar you must first configure your Scheduling Assistant account. Instructions for configuring your account can be found here: Scheduling Assistant - Owners: Configuring/Managing Your Account

Once you've configured your account and defined your availability schedule, login to Scheduling Assistant and navigate to the Appointment Preferences page and locate the "Calendar Select" section (pictured below).

The Calendar Selection pane will display the names of every calendar linked to your account. The primary calendar of your account will be labelled "Calendar".

By default, Scheduling Assistant only queries your primary Office 365 calendar to determine your availability schedule.  For example, if you have accepted a Office 365 meeting request from 8am-3pm on Thursday, no students/staff will be able to schedule an appointment with you during this time, even if you've included this time period in your availability schedule.

Schedule owners may override this behavior by choosing different "input" calendars. Every event in your selected input calendars will effect your availability schedule.

Note: Meeting requests will always be placed within the primary Office 365 calendar.
