How working locations look

Working location currently only appears on Calendar surfaces, not in the Directory profile. If you:

  • Turn working locations off—Others still see a Main office location section, which you control with a different setting.
  • Keep working locations on—People with free or busy access to a calendar’s events see working location names on that calendar.
