Working Elsewhere support
On the Windows 10 version of Outlook 365 you can set availability as working elsewhere. This feature is not replicated in the MAC version of Outlook or iOS. Please at least bring it to Outlook of iOS to support feature parity.

Working Elsewhere these days is a quite common status. It would help if this is also available in Outlook for iOS and if you could see this in the availability check when you schedule an appointment (can I meet my colleague face-2-face or not, do I need conference room or a Teams meeting, etc.).
Our teleworkers enter “Telework” in their calendar event if they work remotely on that day.
We would like them to use Working elsewhere in the Show as option with Outlook for iOS/Android when adding the event, but there is no Working elsewhere option for iOS/Android.
So, we would like you to add the option Working elsewhere for Outlook for iOS/Android.
Desktop Outlook lets you show calendar events as “working elsewhere” but the app does not.
Show time as “Working elsewhere” is available in desktop but not in the app. Please add this
Over two years since this was posted and the feature still isn't available on the MacOS native Outlook client. What use is Working Elsewhere if everyone sees you as out of office? This seems like such as obvious needed thing, but still, over 2 years later; nothing. Does anyone from O365 read these?
This should be there!
Does anyone know if this has been addressed yet? This is very frustrating!
Please add Working Elsewhere to iOS application.
I use this email for work and I have a signature that’s attached to my name on the desktop version of this as well as on the mobile.
I do most of my communication on the mobile because I’m constantly on the go.
I have the signature the same on both the desktop and the mobile but the problem is my company’s logo is not available to be put on the mobile version, and it is on the desktop version.
The problem is most of my communication and emailing and such is done on the mobile app. It would be nice to be able to have a cohesive professional look on both of them. I was told that on the app currently there can be no logos/visual attachment such as that to the signature.
Thank you for you’re time

For the love of god, can we get the option for making calendar invitations as “working elsewhere?”
Mike Rosenbaum commented
I work from home a couple days a week. On the days that I do I mark it on my calendar as an all day event with a status of "Working Elsewhere". When I open this event in my Outlook app it shows up as a status of "Out of Office". People think that I am unavailable for meetings.
Please make this status show up correctly in the app.

Agree with Chris. This seems to be an easy add to an existing list. (Busy, Free, out of office, working elsewhere)

I’m able to set my status as Working Elsewhere on my Outlook Desktop, but can’t on iOS. Can you guys put a “working elsewhere option” in the “show as” dropdown for iOS?
Totally worth to support! Must have for consistency.

Agreed... this feature was introduced in Exchange and Outlook 2013 on premise, so would like to have full support at least with 2016.
