As an administrator, you can control whether or not a user’s Calendar status is automatically displayed in other communication and collaboration tools within Google Workspace, such as Gmail, Chat, and Docs. For example, you may not want to display the "Out of office" Calendar status for the users in your organization. In that case, you can turn off automatic Calendar status display.
