Hello, I am looking for a way to setup SharePoint 2010 to show Exchange 2010 users Free Busy info when setting up a new calendar list item within SharePoint.
I am sure this can be done, but not out of the box or by conventional means.
I do not want to purchase a 3rd party Web Part either.
I have made some progress but could use some assistance if any of you have had luck doing this.

Here is what I have done so far.
I created a new SharePoint 2010 Calendar list called TestCalendar.
I then Edit the list using SharePoint designer
Once SharePoint designer is open to the TestCalendar list I go to Content Types and Add Schedule
Next I set Schedule the default Content Type
Then I close out of SharePoint designer and go back to the TestCalendar
This gives me what appears to be everything I need except as I select Attendees it does not show their Free Busy.
New calendar meeting screenOnce I figure out how to pull the Free Busy info from Exchange I will create a workflow that will email the meeting to all the users.
Is there a way to do this, maybe modify the code or something?
Any help would be appreciated.

By design it will only show the information for the user who is logged in.  Microsoft has documented this information.

So apparently there is no way to show free busy info for selected Attendees in SharePoint like you have within your Outlook Calendar. That is a shame, could have made the SharePoint calendars much more valuable and useful but I guess they will just have to have very limited use in my organization.
Sure with Microsoft would have given this more thought.
