Pitt and UPMC Enable Sharing of Outlook Free/Busy Time

Tuesday, February 8, 2022 - 11:48


The University of Pittsburgh and UPMC have implemented changes to their Microsoft Outlook calendars that enable free/busy time to be visible between the two organizations. This enhancement simplifies the scheduling of meetings between individuals from both Pitt and UPMC.  

Scheduling Meetings

When scheduling meetings between organizations, you must provide the preferred email address ending with @pitt.edu or @upmc.edu in order to view participants’ free/busy time in Outlook. Please note that email aliases that end in domains other than upmc.edu or pitt.edu will not display free/busy time. Free/busy time will also not display if a meeting participant has chosen to keep it private.  

Staff with Pitt and UPMC Email Addresses

When scheduling meetings with staff who have both Pitt and UPMC email addresses, ask which address they prefer or add both email addresses to the meeting invitation.

Please contact the Technology Help Desk at 412-624-HELP (4357) or the UPMC Help Desk at 412-647-HELP (4357) if you have any questions regarding this announcement.
