Create "Out of Office" events on integrated calendars instead of "Busy" events
We sync our user's holiday calendar to Office 365, but the system shows them as "Busy" when it should show them as "Out Of Office".
This will then allow other systems that integrate with the calendar to recognise that they are not in the office and show their status accordingly

Out of office events are also available in G Suite as well as Office 365.

@Callum Parkinson can you please elaborate a bit more on this? Are you referring to any settings in Appogee or somewere in O365 wherein Appogee leaves will sit in outlook as Out of Office?
We would like to see this too. We are in the process of setting up the system and events syncing to Outlook calendars as "Busy" rather than "Out of Office" was spotted immediately by all our test users. As a result we are considering disabling the calendar integration prior to going live.
Additionally we would like the ability to disable reminders from being added to the synced events. Nobody appreciates getting a reminder at 11:45pm that they are on leave the following day!
I echo Matthews comments - . We are in the process of setting up the system and events syncing to Outlook calendars as "Busy" rather than "Out of Office" was spotted immediately by all our test users.
Additionally we would also like the ability to disable reminders or set a longer reminder time from being added to the synced events.
This is now available for Office 365 integrated accounts.
You can manage your Leave Types to either show as Free, Busy or Out of Office in Microsoft/Outlook calendars.
We are unable to set this up for Google Workspace accounts as the API is still read only.
