Status shows as busy for all invited meetings

Brass Contributor

Our organization only recently activated the calendar in Teams to sync with Outlook, and since that update, Teams is now showing users as busy whenever they have a meeting in their calendar, whether or not they've joined the meeting or even accepted the invitation. Users can manually change their status back to available, but is there a setting that can be changed so that a user's status will be shown as busy only when they join a meeting? We've had a complaint about this.

@JoshLalonde Thanks for asking this - I have the opposite problem. People keep double booking me because my tentative invites don't show as blocked in Scheduling Assistant. I'm trying to figure out how to do the reverse - show my potential invites I haven't acted on as not fully available on my calendar.
