Hello nada10,

you could try the resolution here

To resolve this behavior, run Outlook on the computer that is experiencing problems publishing Free/Busy information with the /CleanFreeBusy command-line switch. This will refresh the Free/Busy information. To do so, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type "outlook.exe /cleanfreebusy", and then click OK.
3. View the published information from another computer.

hope this helps a bit
Thanks for your response! That did not seem to help, however. I still am unable to see the free/busy options
