evolution-connector: Public Calendar Appointments do not show as busy
Last modified: 2015-04-12 19:17:17 EDT
Description of problem:
This problem occurs when attaching to an MS Exchange server and using
the Calendar. When scheduling a meeting, if an invitee has an
appointment that is public and marked busy, the meeting orgaizer does
not see that time block as busy for the invitee. Outlook web Access
shows the time properly as busy.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. As a user on an MS Exchange server, open up evolutions calendar and
make an appointment that is both public and busy for a time.
2. As a different user on an MS Exchange Server open calendar and set
up a meeting for the same day as the appointment in 1.
3. Under the scheduling tab, invite the user from 1. to the meeting.
The user from 1. looks like they have an open schedule to the meeting
User 1. 's schedule should appear busy for the time of the appointment.
Workaround -- instead of making appointments, users could make a
meeting with the same info with themselves as the only attendee.
Meetings are correctly seen as busy time in the schedule.
