From the IT Group: The calendar feature, which displays your busy or free time in Microsoft Outlook, is set for two months. This means that information beyond two months appears as “no information is available,” and a bar with diagonal lines. A simple solution to this problem is to expand the number of months others can view from two to six! If you expand your calendar availability, and everyone else expands theirs, scheduling project meetings or making appointments will be whole lot easier.
To do this, open Microsoft Outlook, click on “Tools,” and open “Options.” In the “Calendar” area, choose “Calendar options,” and under “Advanced” options, select “Free/busy options.” In the “Options” area, change the default from “Publish 2 months” to “Publish 6 months of calendar free/busy information on the server.” Click “OK” and continue clicking “OK” through each subsequent screen.
