2.2.2.9 BusyStatus

As a top-level element of the Calendar class, the BusyStatus element is an optional element that specifies whether the recipient is busy at the time of the meeting. It is used in ActiveSync command requests and responses as specified in section 2.2.2.

As an optional child element of the Exception element (section 2.2.2.21), the BusyStatus element specifies the busy status of the meeting organizer. A command request or response has a maximum of one BusyStatus child element per Exception element. If the BusyStatus element is not specified as a child element of an Exception element, the value of the BusyStatus element is assumed to be the same as the value of the top-level BusyStatus element.

The BusyStatus element is defined as an element in the Calendar namespace. The value of this element is an unsignedByte data type, as specified in [MS-ASDTYPE] section 2.8.

The value of the BusyStatus element MUST be one of the values listed in the following table.
