3.1 Create and manage calendars
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.
Tip Outlook doesn’t allow you to define a workday that crosses midnight or to define
different start and end times for different days.
If you frequently travel or work with colleagues or clients outside of your usual time
zone, you might want to change the time zone on your computer so that information
such as the receipt time of email messages, appointment times, and the time on the
clock in the Windows Taskbar notification area reflects your current location. If you have
appointments in both time zones, you can display both time zones on the left side of the
Calendar pane, and swap between zones when you travel. That way, you can be sure to
correctly enter appointments at the time they will occur in their respective time zones.
