YT Thumb - How Set Work From Home OUTLOOK.png

Microsoft recently implemented the ability to display your physical work location in Microsoft Outlook. This physical work location allows you to display Microsoft Outlook calendar work from home status. This Microsoft Outlook tutorial will demonstrate how to show working from home in Microsoft Outlook. With this feature, you can set your work location per day and you can also choose to expose your status to colleagues. If this option is set, when users are using the Microsoft Outlook scheduling assistant to schedule meetings with you, they will be able to see an icon that displays whether you’re working from the office or remotely.

Would it be possible to export this data to Power BI and show how many people is expected to come to work on a given day? I imagine making a flow to catch this information and display it on a dashboard. 

This is a good question. I'm not entirely sure where this data is stored. It be useful to create a post on here raising the question as I'm sure others may have the same use case.

@LuiIacobellis any ability to configure on the back end so that users could be automatically shown to be in office when connected to Office Internet (i.e. Public IP Based automation) or an integration with Robin or other check-in management systems?
