In this chapter, you’ll define your work time and learn how to configure Outlook for use in
multiple time zones. You’ll examine the different types of secondary calendars, and
experiment with the different ways you can display and switch among multiple calendars. You’ll
also share selected calendar information by embedding it in an email message. Finally,
you’ll print daily and monthly calendars.
PRACTICE FILES You don’t need any practice files to complete the exercises in this chapter.
Defining your available time
In your Outlook calendar, the time that you indicate you are available for other people to
schedule meetings with you is referred to as your work week . The calendar timeslots within
your work week are colored differently from those outside of your work week, and are the
only timeslots made available to people on your network when they are searching for a
time to meet with you.
By default, the Outlook work week is defined as from 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. (in your local
time zone), Monday through Friday. You can change this to match your individual work
schedule. In Outlook 2013, you can specify a start time and end time for your standard
work day, specify the days of the week that you work, and specify the day of the week
that you’d like to appear first when you display only the work week in your calendar.
You define your work week in the Work Time area on the Calendar page of the Outlook
Options dialog box.
