Since CRM 2011, it is possible to specify working hours and time-off (e.g. vacation) for each user and resource. With GroupCalendar v5.37 or higher, it is now possible to show these working hours and the time-off.
Per default, this feature is not enabled because it has a slight performance impact on loading the views. Anyway, to enable this functionality, please follow the steps below.
1. Open your CRM in the Internet Explorer
2. Navigate to Settings within the CRM sitemap
3. Click on MSCRM-ADDONS.com Products in the CRM sitemap, mark the checkbox in front of GroupCalendar and click on the [Edit]-button in the CRM menu at the top.
