Further Info

By enabling this feature Appointments will update your availability dynamically based on your Outlook Calendar. If you are away or have a conflict on a day you've made available to Appointments, the session(s) will become unavailable when the absence/event is added to your Outlook calendar.

If you don't check the box, you'll have to update your Appointments availability manually as well as your Outlook calendar. 

If you want to make sure colleagues don't book you in Outlook during a time you've made available to Appointments (since nothing will show in Outlook by default until a patron books you in Appointments, you can block times in Outlook and set them as "Free" (under "Show As" in Outlook) if you checked the box in no. 9. 

Note: changes made to Outlook may take time to be reflected in Appointments- as much as 10 minutes.
