Google Apps: Calendar events (busy or available)

Did you know that your Google Calendar shows you as “busy” by default on events with specific times, but shows you as “available” by default on all day events?

 

For example: If you click on your calendar to create an event at 1:30 pm Tuesday,
and then click on Edit Event Details

 

1-_New_event_130pm_Tues.jpg

The event details will show you as busy:

 2-_Trg_session_-_busy.jpg

 However, if you change this to an all day event, when you check the All day box,

it switches automatically to show you as available:

 3-_Trg_session_all_day_-_available.jpg

 

While it’s true that you may be available during an all day event if that event is someone’s birthday, 
you may want to show your time as "busy" during an all day training session.
