I hardly use the thing so I have to come to you guys for assistance.

I have a user that says she used to schedule 'All Day Events' and people couldn't schedule meetings during those times.  

I don't know how long this hasn't worked for her, but right now I can schedule an all day event and people can still schedule a meeting.  Is there a way to block people from even sending invites, or at least getting warned, when submitting an invite during busy time?

Muchas Gracias,

I don't think that you can block anyone from scheduling a meeting.

I would say just decline the invitation if you have a conflict

You can invite someone DESPITE free time being blocked out.  The question is, when someone views her busy time or asks to check for conflicts, does it report the day as booked?

I know that I scheduled an all day event for myself, and then had another user request a meeting and there was no prompt saying that I was busy.  I think that for some of my users, the red bar isn't enough of an indication.

Checking for free time on onvites is a user preference.  If it is off, it won't prompt.

Where do you set that?  I'm scheduling a meeting and I don't see anywhere that I can set 'check free time'

thanks,
