Free/Busy - outlook 2007

Not open for further replies.


I have had this issue since we moved to exchange 2007 when looking up free/busy information, where in users are able to see that the resource is book (shows as Busy) , but when they place the cursor on the schedule it does not show as to who has booked it. This is same when logged into OWA. But surprisingly with the outlook 2010 Beta , i am able to view the information. Is there any specfic settings that needs to be done in order to view ?


browse to the executable outlook file from the run line and run the switch /cleanfreebusy ... this resets the free/busy info.

Dear Bashram,

First what I'll recomend you is to check that the Outlook client is updated with the latest patch or not. If it's not then go ahead to do that and it's already, then throw the command as told by Jnnnvk above.

Run> Outlook/ cleanfreebusy

This crears if any cache and shows the recent details over the outlook client.

Cheers :)
