Freebusy and event visibility

You can now easily set Free/Busy and privacy for any event in the context panel. Free/Busy is useful to indicate to teammates (or other tools) that certain windows of time should be blocked or not. The event Public/Private visibility is used to, e.g., prevent anyone from seeing the details of a specific event — the options are nuanced but we explain it clearly with the question mark tooltips in the UI.

We have some cool ideas how to soon take this area one step further by letting you automatically auto-block times from one calendar to another.
