    Default Outlook Connector Free Busy for additional Calendars not showing

    Using Outlook 2010 on Win 7 Pro 32 bit
    ZCO Outlook connector ZimbraConnectorOLK_7.2.0.517_x86
    zcs-NETWORK-7.2.0_GA_2669.RHEL6_64.201204100021177


    Outlook user has multiple calendars in their account, when adding a meeting, the free busy information for the user only uses Free Busy data from the Main Calendar (Called Calendar)

    Is there a setting I am missing?

    Is this expected behavior?

    Additional Testing shows.
    Using the web client, all user calendars are used to calculate the Free Busy data.
    Using Thunderbird with Lightning, all user calendars are used to calculate Free Busy data
    Using Apple iCal, all user calendars are used to calculate Free Busy data

    So far, I have not been able to get this working the way I would expect.
    Below is the response from Zimbra support, unfortunately, it has not helped resolve the issue.
    I am continuing to follow up on this and will post if and when I get some positive results.





    Please use below wiki link as a reference and set the "Search Localtion" URL correctly to view the Free/Busy for additional calendars in outlook.

    Also use the latest connector.

    The Outlook Free/Busy functionality does not uses ZCB. ZCB is not used for the Free/Busy component. The Outlook client queries directly the mail server using the Free/Busy URL.
    Having said that, the granular free/busy time permission is only for primary calendar in Outlook. You are not able to query Free/Busy from multiple calendars. Only the main calendar can publish free/busy.

    Well obviously you need to improve the outlook plugin so that users have a seamless and improved user experience. The last thing I want to hear from users is "but ms exchange does that easily".

    As mentioned in my previous post. The Free/Busy component 'DOES NOT' uses the Zimbra Connector.

    I never said it did. I said the plugin needs changed so that outlook DOES use it for free/busy for all calendars.
