Many meetings, appointments, events and tasks occur regularly over time. Instead of creating new items for each occurrence, you can set the item as repeating.

How do I set a repeating item?

  1. Create a new appointment, meeting request, or task or open one that's already created.

  2. On the toolbar, click the repeat icon Repeat.

  3. In the Repetition dialogue box, under Appointment Time, use the Start and End lists to select the start and end times of the repeating item.

  4. Under Repeat Pattern, select how often the appointment or meeting will occur.

  5. Under Range of Repetition, select when you want this repeat pattern to start and end.

  6. Click OK.

  7. Click saveSave and Close or press CTRL+S to save appointments and tasks before closing the browser window. Click sendSend Update or press ALT+S to send updated meeting requests.

What else do I need to know?

  • You can schedule repeating appointments, meetings and tasks. You can set an existing appointment or task to repeat. But you can modify meeting requests to repeat only if you created them.

  • The options for repeating calendar items include date and time, but the options for repeating tasks do not.
