The Calendar lets you create and track appointments. You can also organize and schedule meetings with other people, and then update or modify the information (time, location, or attendees) as needed. When you use the Calendar to keep track of your meetings and appointments, anyone in the global address list can check your availability for their own scheduling purposes.
You can set any appointments or meetings to be repeating. This means they occur more than one time and on a regular basis. For example, you can schedule a repeating project status meeting that occurs every Wednesday at 2:00 P.M.
To open your calendar, click Calendar in the Getting Started > Navigation Pane.
The calendar displays your appointments and meetings for the current day.
In the navigation pane, click Calendar.
To view a different day, select a date from the month view that's next to your schedule.
To view the details of an item or to change it, click the item.
If you edit a repeating item, such as a weekly meeting, you'll be prompted to change either that one occurrence or all occurrences of the meeting.
For information about how to work with appointments, see:
A meeting is an appointment you share with another person. When you request a meeting, in addition to setting a time and subject, you'll add a list of attendees to invite. You can also add resources, such as a conference room or projector. If the recipients are in the shared address book, you can see their free/busy time. Most recipients can respond to the meeting request by accepting, tentatively accepting, or declining your invitation. Like appointments, meeting requests can be for a single meeting or scheduled as repeating meetings.
For information about how to work with meetings, see:
Many meetings, appointments, and events occur regularly over a period of time. Instead of creating new calendar items for each occurrence, you can set the item as repeating.
For information about how to work with repeating items, see:
