I was wondering what the "availability" field on a calendar event means. The options are busy or free. This leads to my next issue which is the fact that even though I set calendar events to alert me at the time of the event, it only does so sporadically. I'm not sure if this is a result of a certain field within the event, etc. any help is appreciated.

In general, this sort of field is used for evaluating meeting times. An example of that would be that I'm trying to schedule a meeting of 10 people, so I can view their availability within the corporate calendar server to see when they're 'free'. I don't find any value without a central calendar server though.

For your second question, is there any similarity when the notifications work (or don't)?

No specific pattern that I've noticed... Seems to only alert me occasionally.
