Sometimes you may have a private Calendar that you do not want others to know what Events are on there, but you still want others to know that you are busy during those times. For example, let's say you have a private Calendar that shows you have a PTA meeting from 3:00-4:00pm on Friday. You want your clients to know that you will be unavailable during that time, but you don't want them to know what for. Keep&Share’s “Free/Busy” setting will allow you to do exactly that.

Note: Being about to use “Free/Busy” is a feature available only to paid Solo and Team accounts. This does not include paid legacy accounts.

The "Free/Busy” setting is located in the “Who can see my calendar?” tab in your Calendar’s “Customize” screen. When you click on the check box next to this setting, this will show all of your Event content as “Busy” rather than showing the actual content of the Event. This feature will apply to Calendar Overlays, embedded Calendars, RSS Calendar feeds, and public iCalendar feeds.

Note: The “Free/Busy” setting does not apply to those with Edit Rights to your Calendar or those that have your private iCalendar link.
