Hi,

We are using Office 365 Pro Plus. We would like to add a custom status in the "Show As" for the Calendar schedule. Is this possible? Any workaround to this org-wide?

You cannot create custom ones currently, but it's a common request - go vote it on UserVoice.

@Dobongsoon Yeah, I've heard about this request many times but unfortunately the UserVoice requests doesn't even come close to make the product team act on it. And they've been there for years.
