Outlook Switch /cleanfreebusy 2013

I am having issues with Outlook calendar as I cannot see the free/busy information on users and conference rooms.  The conference rooms are a resource that we can book.  I have not had this issue in the past.  I have Office 365 2013.

I have learned that the /cleanfreebusy switch is no longer available, but found no replacement feature.  

I have not reinstalled Office yet, and all other features seem to work well except setting out-of-office.

I can set this in OWA but not the local application.

Is it Office 365 or 2013, it can't be both.

For the installed Office 2013, use /cleanfreebusy, it still works.

Office 365 is cloud based and doesn't have command-line switches.

I have Office 365 Pro and it installs locally as Office 2013 Pro.  The switch did not work as it was removed :

I dd get updates and have also had one other user come forward that was patched and is also having calendar issues.

Hello,here are the fixes from my M$ case :

This is with regards to the issue faced by you due to regression caused by November security update. This is further to inform you that fix is out and below is the download links for 32 bit and 64 bit of the office suites. You need to apply all 3 hotfix. The crash issue and IMAP issue would get resolved immediately while the issue related to Free / Busy and OOF not getting set would take 24-36 hours to start working once the patch is applied.

Below are the KB articles and packages for download.
