Skype meetings are syncing fine with Skype FB status - In a meeting. But my question is if outlook appointments are supposed to change the status to "Busy" 

 

Thanks!

@YA-17 Yes, it's meant to, changing to either "Busy" or "In a meeting" - Set automatically for you based on your Outlook calendar:

This is configurable "Update my presence based on my calendar information" should be enabled:
