Below is an example that displays four MS Communicator statuses and the basic format of what Communicator will read in terms of statuses.
However, my client has these set to 15 minutes and doesn’t let me change them. And it’s all to do with the connection between your Outlook Calendar and Microsoft Lync.
Those settings weren’t what I wanted anyway — it was the Busy status that was annoying me as it would report me as Busy/in a meeting when I wasn’t (in a meeting, that is). It seems that Lync is intimately linked with Outlook/Exchange Server, and if you have an appointment scheduled in your Outlook Calendar, Lync will pick that up and change your status to Busy or Busy — in a meeting for that time.
I discovered that if I manually activated the Oo OA and then manually deactivated it, Lync was once again properly synched up with Exchange and the red asterisk and status message reverted to their default states.

But what about if you use the calendar for other purposes, such as a reminder tool?
For example, I use Outlook’s Calendar to remind me to put in my weekly report (recurring reminder every Thursday), turn on my ‘Out of Office’ notifications (recurring reminder late every Thursday), jot down which documents are due to me on what dates (ad hoc reminders), etc. Sure, I could use Outlook’s Tasks function for my reminders instead, but Tasks doesn’t offer me the very visual ‘at a glance’ view of my week or month that the Calendar function does.
It appears as a little red asterisk in the lower right-hand corner of the status light.
Also, your Lync status message is automatically set to whatever your Oo OA internal message is.
If the appointment is as a result of a meeting request, you’ll show as Busy — in a meeting; if it’s just a reminder, your status will show as Currently busy, free at .
