Scheduling Appointments and Events
2. On the Home tab, click the New Appointment button (or press Ctrl+N).
As shown in Figure 4-2, you see the Appointment window for naming the
activity, stating its starting and ending time, and choosing whether you
want to be alerted to its occurrence. In a folder apart from the Calendar,
you can display this window by going to the Home tab, clicking the New
Items button, and choosing Appointment on the drop-down list.
3. Enter information in the Appointment tab.
Enter a subject, location (you can open the drop-down list and choose
one you’ve entered before), start date and time, and end date and time.
To enter a recurring event or appointment, click the Recurrence button.
To enter an event instead of an appointment, click the All Day Event
If the appointment time you enter conflicts with an appointment you’ve
already scheduled, the Appointment window tells you as much. You can
click the Calendar button to view the calendar and look for open timeslots.
4. Open the Reminder drop-down list (located in the Options group)
and choose an option if you want to be reminded when the activity is
imminent (or choose None if you don’t care to be reminded).
Choose an option from the drop-down list to make the Reminder message
box appear before the activity begins. Chapter 5 of this mini-book explains
how reminders work.
