Smoother transitioning between online/offline working for remote users…

OfficeCalendar Version 8 has added new functionality and options when the “Work Offline” option is selected – “Work Offline until next time Outlook is started” or “Work Offline temporarily and attempt to reconnect on next scheduled sync”.
