Analyst Availability Server may be managed in Administration > Company Structure > Analyst Availability Server. The Analyst Availability Server connection allows ServiceDesk to connect to Exchange Web Services (EWS) and synchronize Analyst absences. When this is configured, an absence created in an Analyst's Exchange-based Outlook calendar will be automatically transferred to the ServiceDesk Analyst Availability Calendar.
