If you have the same appointment on a regular basis—for example, a monthly haircut or
a weekly exercise class—you can set it up in your Outlook calendar as a recurring
appointment . A recurring appointment can happen at almost any regular interval, such as every
Tuesday and Thursday, every other week, or the last day of every month. Configuring an
appointment recurrence creates multiple instances of the appointment in your calendar at
the time interval you specify. You can set the appointment to recur until further notice, to
end after a certain number of occurrences, or to end by a certain date. The individual
appointments are linked. When making changes to a recurring appointment, you can choose
to update all occurrences or only an individual occurrence of the appointment.
You can specify the time zone in which an appointment starts and ends. You might want to
set different starting and ending time zones if, for example, your “appointment” is an
airplane light with departure and arrival cities located in different time zones, and you want
the light to show up correctly wherever you’re currently located.
In this exercise, you’ll schedule an appointment and a recurring appointment, and you’ll
update appointments by using commands in the appointment window.
