Outlokk Calendar features

I have a customer with Exchange 2010 and Outlook 2010. He wants to share his calendar, but instead of specific appointments, he wants the calendar to show the blocks of time that he is unavailable.Of course he wants his Outlook calendar to show the appointments. Is this possible? If so, can someome please point me in the right direction.

Thanks,

Charles

You mean he ONLY wants the others to see his free/busy status and NOT any details?

If I'm understanding the question correctly - this feature is already available (i.e. Free/busy status as Neilsr has described it).

Typically this information is available when someone (in the same Exchange environment) tries to schedule a meeting with him - it will show what times are available or not available)

Outlook 2010 also allows the grouping of calendars under calendar view (e.g. to facilitate team meetings). This allows at a glance view of free time of multiple people at once.
