Working elsewhere status

On your Exchange Calendar, if your event status is set to Working elsewhere, Calendly will read you as available.

The "Working elsewhere" status is only available on Outlook on the Web. If you view a "Working elsewhere" event on Outlook for desktop, the event status will show as busy, but Calendly will still read you as available from the Exchange server.
