Understanding Outlook Free/Busy Permissions

AntExpert asked
Last Modified: 2015-05-27
There are various permissions levels to choose from when sharing an Outlook calendar. If a user wishes to share their free/busy status (which is the default user policy on Exchange I believe), should this information only be viewable in the scheduling assistant or should the user have the ability to open the shared calendar?  Even if I add the "folder visible" permission, the user still cannot open my calendar.
Is this by design does anyone know?
