Making Time Stand Still with Calendar Wizardry
Making Time Stand Still
with Calendar Wizardry
The most popular way to make plans with other people is through e-mail; it’s
cheap, fast, and complete. Whether you are asking people to lunch, hosting
a party, putting on a show, or organizing an exhibition, you probably already
know how convenient e-mail can be for organizing get-togethers.
When you receive a plain e-mail announcement about an event and you want
to plug its details into your calendar, you can do that in Outlook by following
1. Click the Mail button in the Navigation bar (or press Ctrl+1).
A list of your current incoming e-mail messages appears.
2. Select the message from which you want to make an appointment.
3. Drag the selected message to the Calendar icon.
An Appointment form opens with the text from the message you dragged
in the note section of the New Appointment form. Figure 3-2 shows an
appointment created in this way.
