Teams Meetings created to display as 'Free' (and other options available in Outlook like 'working elsewhere') instead of just busy
When creating a meeting from Teams, you could also decide whether this meeting will show you as 'busy', 'free', 'working elsewhere', and other options that are already available in Outlook.
Our users like to note in their team calendar when they are working from home. Unfortunately, the event is automatically added to their Outlook calendar as 'Busy', so other users can't book a meeting with them. The only workaround is to update it in Outlook after it appears or add it as an All Day Event, which appears by default as 'Free'.

As per the attachment, incorporate this in MS Teams meeting scheduler.

Consistency amongst the tools in an application suite is a key feature.
I frequently set appointments/meetings for myself as a way to manage work tasks and deadlines. This is handy because I can set an alarm/notification a day before, etc. I no longer can use the calendar for this if I can't set the meeting to display as "free", because my intention isn't to block that time for others to schedule meetings with me. I miss this feature very much.

Yes, I would like it if Microsoft Teams Calendar had option of the Show As: Free, Working Elsewhere, Tentative, Busy & Out of the Office (like Outlook Calendar does)
Yes and dont forget to add "Tentative" (to to block timeslots in your own calendar).
