2 Getting Started Outlook vs. Outlook Express There are some important differences to be aware of before deciding between Outlook and Outlook Express. Outlook Express is the Internet and news reader included with Microsoft Internet Explorer version 4.0 and later.

Appointment - An appointment is an activity that involves only you. Meeting - A meeting is similar to an appointment. The difference is that you invite other people to it. All day event - This event is an activity that lasts all day long but doesn't block out time in your Calendar. With an event, you can still have other items appear in your schedule for that day. Three different ways to create an appointment: Use the New Appointment button on the Standard toolbar. Use the New Appointment command on the Actions menu. Click in the main Calendar grid to select the time for your appointment, right-click, and then click New Appointment on the shortcut menu. From there, you would fill in the details and then save the appointment in your Calendar. 16
17 Tip You can drag a message from your Inbox to your Calendar to make it into a calendar entry. A meeting is similar to an appointment, only it includes other people and a meeting location. A meeting in your calendar could be one you organize, or it could be one you ve been invited to by someone else. Meetings appear in your calendar and in the calendars of the other people who are involved. A meeting in Outlook is set up with the help of a meeting request, which is delivered to the meeting participants via . An all day event does not occupy blocks of time in your calendar; instead, it appears in a banner at the top of the date you specify in the Calendar. Use an all day event when you want to show an activity that occurs on a specific day without having it clutter up all of the time slots in your calendar. Here are some types of entry for which you might use an all day event: A holiday. A recurring annual event such as a birthday or anniversary. Other items that last all day, such as your own or someone else's vacation schedule. The border color of a calendar entry indicates whether the time for that item is scheduled as free, busy, tentative, or out of office. You'll see the border color in your own calendar and you can change it. By default, appointments and meetings are entered as busy, and all day events are entered as free. To change how time appears in your calendar: 1. Select the entry and right-click to open the shortcut menu. (When you select the entry, the border will appear around the entire entry.) 2. On the shortcut menu, select Show Time As. 3. Select a setting. Modify or delete an appointment To modify an appointment, event, or meeting: 1. Open the appointment, event, or meeting you want to change. 2. Do one of the following: To change options for an item that is not part of a series: 17
18 On the Appointment tab, change the options, such as subject, location, and time that you want to change, and then click Save and Close. To change options for all parts of a series: Click Open the series, and then change any options, such as subject, location, and time, that you want to change on the Appointment tab. To change recurrence options, click the Actions > Recurrence, change the options, such as time, recurrence pattern, or range of recurrence that you want to change, and click OK. Click Save and Close. To change options for one item that is part of a series: Click Open this occurrence. On the Appointment tab, change the options, such as subject, location, and time that you want to change, and then click Save and Close. TIPS Keep these in mind when modifying appointments. You can drag the appointment, event, or meeting to a different date. You can also edit the subject by clicking the description text and typing your changes. You can change an event into an appointment, causing the time to be blocked out in your Calendar, by clearing the All day event check box and then entering start and end times. Events are defined as lasting from midnight to midnight; clearing this check box allows you to enter specific times. To delete an appointment, right-click the appointment and select Delete from the shortcut menu. Set and manage reminders When you create any type of calendar entry, a reminder will be automatically set according to your settings. The default setting for appointments and meetings is 15 minutes, and for all day events is 18 hours. Although you can't change the default setting for all day events, you can change it for appointments and meetings. You can also set or change a reminder for an individual calendar entry by opening it and adjusting the settings next to the Reminder check box. Manage Recurring Events To specify that an appointment, meeting, or all day event occurs over, and over, and over, you can use the Recurrence feature in Outlook. When you open a recurring item from your Calendar, you'll be prompted whether you want to open just that one occurrence or whether you want to open the entire series. 1. Double-click the item to open it. 2. Select an option in the Open Recurring Item dialog box. When you open a recurring calendar item to see its details or make changes to it, you'll see a message which gives you two options: Open this occurrence - Choose this option when you want to change (or see) one instance of an appointment for a recurring calendar item without affecting the entire series of items. In this case, for example, you might want to exercise one half hour later than usual on one particular day. Open the series - Choose this option to change any aspect of a recurring appointment for the entire series. You would select this option if, for example, you decided to permanently shift all instances of your "Exercise" appointment by half an hour. 18
19 If you want to change the recurrence pattern, click the Recurrence button in the open item. Tips Keep these in mind when you work with recurring items: Don't delete a recurring item. Instead, change the End by time and update the item. This leaves you with a record of past occurrences. You may need to schedule several different recurring calendar items to achieve the desired pattern for the "same" recurring entry. For example, if you want to set up a payday event that occurs on the 15th and the last day of the month, you would need to set up two recurring events for that. Color code appointments Outlook has 10 colors that you can use to color appointments and meetings. These colors are visible in Day/Week/Month view of Calendar. You can color individual or recurring appointments and meetings manually, or you can use rules to automatically color items that meet certain conditions, such as when a certain word is used in the subject or when a meeting request is sent by a certain person. Manual coloring always take precedence over automatic coloring, so if you have applied manual coloring to an item, automatic coloring will not be applied to it. To color an appointment or meeting: 1. In Calendar, right-click an appointment or meeting, select Label on the shortcut menu, and click a color in the list. 2. To remove a color from the appointment or meeting, in the Label list, click None. To color a recurring appointment or meeting: 1. In Calendar, open an appointment or meeting. 2. Click Open the series, and then click OK. 3. In the Label list, click a color. To remove a color from the appointment or meeting, in the Label list, click None. To color appointments and meetings automatically: 1. In Calendar, right-click the calendar grid, and then click Automatic Formatting on the shortcut menu. 2. Click Add, and then type a name for the rule. 3. In the Label list, click a color. 4. Click Condition to specify the conditions under which the color will be applied. Note If you manually assign a color to an item, automatic coloring cannot be used on that item. Schedule a Meeting When you create a meeting in Outlook, you actually create a meeting request. The request is sent out by to the prospective meeting participants, who respond by accepting or declining the meeting request or by proposing a new time. To create a meeting request: 1. In Calendar, select File > New > Meeting Request. Or select Actions > New Meeting Request. The Meeting dialog box appears. 2. Click To. The Select Attendees and Resources dialog box appears. 3. Select the people who must attend the meeting, and click Required. 19
20 4. Select the people who can optionally attend the meeting, and click Optional. 5. Click OK. 6. Enter a subject in the Subject field. 7. Click the Scheduling tab. 8. If you've set up the free/busy status settings, you can view your meeting participants' free/busy information on the Scheduling tab. Select a free block of time for the meeting. 9. Click Send, and then click Yes. Outlook sends the meeting request to the specified recipients. Process meeting requests If someone has scheduled a meeting for you to attend, the meeting request message shows up in your Inbox. A meeting request message includes response buttons at the top of the Reading Pane. To respond to a meeting request: Click Accept to accept the meeting. Click Tentative to accept the meeting subject to change. Click Decline to decline the meeting. Click Propose New Time to suggest a new time for the meeting. In each case, Outlook prompts you to modify your response, send your response immediately, or send no response. Click Edit the response before sending, and then click OK if you want to add some notes or other information, such as to propose a different location. Click Send the response now and then click OK to send the response. Click Do not send a response and then click OK if you do not want to send a response. Note If the meeting scheduler has submitted an update to the meeting request, Outlook informs you that you have an updated request. Click No to respond to the request, and then look in your Inbox for a more recent meeting request. When you receive a meeting request, you can also propose a new time for the meeting. To propose a new meeting time: 1. Click Propose New Time in the Message dialog box. The Propose New Time dialog box appears. 20
21 2. Select a block of time for the meeting. 3. Click Propose Time, add any other relevant information to your reply, and then click Send. If someone has proposed a new meeting time, you'll receive a message in your Inbox that indicates that the recipient has tentatively accepted. The message includes information about the proposed meeting time. If the time doesn't work for you, you can reply and suggest another time. If the suggested time does work for you, you can reschedule the meeting with the updated time. Reschedule a meeting To reschedule a meeting: 1. In Calendar, locate the meeting on your calendar, and double-click it. 2. Click the Scheduling tab. 3. Select a new block of time for the meeting, and click Save and Close. You are notified that you have changed the meeting and asked whether you want to send the updated meeting to the attendees now. 4. Click Yes to send the update. The meeting request goes to each of the attendees' Inbox with Update: prefixed to the message subject line. The attendees can accept, tentatively accept, decline, or propose a new time, just as they were able to in the original meeting request. Track meeting status To view the status of an upcoming meeting: 1. In Calendar, double-click the meeting on your schedule. 2. Click the Tracking tab. You'll see all of the attendees and their responses. You can make changes to the meeting on the Tracking tab. 3. To change an attendee's status, click the entry in the Attendance column next to the attendee's name and select Required Attendee, Optional Attendee, or Resource. 4. To determine whether an attendee is online, point to the attendee's name in the Name column. Outlook displays a presence icon that you can click to start a chat session and perform other tasks. 21
22 5. To specify whether you'd like to send further meeting requests to an attendee, click the envelope icon in the column to the left of the attendee's name and choose either Send meeting to this attendee or Don't send meeting to this attendee. 6. When you're finished working with the meeting form, click Save and Close. 7. If you have made changes to the meeting, you are asked whether you want to send the updated meeting request to the attendees. Click Yes to send the update or No if you want to make other changes and send the updated request later. Set Calendar Options You can use the Calendar options to set the preferences for your calendar. To set the calendar options: 1. From the main menu, select Tools > Options. The Options dialog box opens. 2. Under Calendar, select Default reminder to have Outlook remind you automatically of all appointments. In the drop-down box, select the amount of time before appointments you want to receive the reminder. (You can change this time for individual appointments when you create them.) 3. Click the Preferences tab and click Catalog Options to access more options. The Calendar Options dialog box opens. 4. Select the days of the week you want to show on your calendar. 5. Select other options as necessary. To select a time zone, or show more than one time zone at a time, click Time Zone. 6. To have Outlook automatically display holidays for different countries or religions, click Add Holidays. 7. To publish your free/busy information on a Web or other server, click Free/Busy Options. 8. When you are finished, click OK. Print the calendar To print a calendar with all your appointments in it: 1. Select File > Print. The Print dialog box opens. 2. In the Print style box, click the print style you want. To print the details of appointments and meetings, in the Print Style box, click Calendar Details Style. 3. In the Start list and the End list, enter the first day and the last day to print. 4. To set other print options, such as the paper orientation or the fonts used, click Page Setup, and then select the options that you want. 22
23 Notes To print the details of private appointments, clear the Hide Details of private appointments check box. To print non-adjacent days, change to Week or Month view, select the days you want to print, and then on the File menu, click Print. To print a blank calendar: 1. Select File > New > Folder. Type a name for the folder. 2. In the Folder contains list, click Calendar Items. 3. In the Select where to place the folder list, click Calendar, and then click OK. 4. On the Go menu, click Folder List. 5. In the Folder List, click the new folder you just created. 6. On the File menu, point to Page setup, and then click the print style you want. 7.
