Can one say
a. I don't know what I will be doing next week, other than that I will meet John.
b. I have no idea what I will be doing next week, other than that I will meet John.

?

Many thanks.

I would think it would be the other way around: "I have a meeting with John next week, but other than that, I don't know what I'll be doing."

Apart from meeting John, I have no idea what I will be doing next week.

I don't know what I will be doing next week except that I will meet John.

With the right context almost anything can sound appropriate.
