The Calendar system in Outlook/Exchange will be most useful to you and others if you keep as much information in your calendar as possible.
If there are times that you are going to be busy, in meetings, traveling, or need to ensure that you will be in the office, you will want to mark those times as 'Busy' on your calendar. The Free/Busy schedule does not indicate what your activities are, it simply indicates that you do not have that time available.
In addition, each meeting invitation you receive gives you the option to 'Accept', 'Accept Tentatively' or 'Decline.' If you have a conflict that wasn't on your calendar, you can choose to 'Decline' the meeting and, if necessary, detail the reasons in the space provided.
Anyone with an Outlook/Exchange account can issue a meeting invitation to you; you decide whether that meeting time will work for you or not.Posted by dcoates at November 14, 2005 11:45 AM
