Outlook for MAC

I wonder if Outlook for MAC has Exchange cached mode like MS Outlook for PC.
I also wonder where in MAC I can run Outlook commands, like Outlook.exe/Cleanfreebusy

Thank you

so If a user makes change offline, it will sync with Exchange when MAC is online with Exchange.

if I change a setting of  policy in Exchange server, assuming that policy has old settings in the offline copy(cached copy) in MAC, which policy settings overwrite the others?  the settings in MAC(offline copy) will overwrite the settings in Exchange servers or the other way around?

<<Local Policy always overrides server policies.>>
I am not sure it does…

for instance, I change the Outlook calendar permissions for Default user to Free/busy time, the Next day it will switch back to Reviewer

Oops I had it backwards Domain Policy overrides local policy.

Bad day yesterday.

So maybe the macs are not getting the policy updates from you server?

What OS are the macs?

We do not have any Domain Policy regarding the Permissions, but if I change Outlook Calendar Default to Free/Busy, the next day it will be Reviewer.
