Your Microsoft Outlook Calendar; it stresses you out, yet you can’t live without it. Before entering a new year, take a look at these incredibly handy tips and shortcuts for your Outlook Calendar, and take one step closer to making 2016 your most productive year yet!
Opening the Calendar in a New Window
Sometimes bouncing back and forth between the Mail and Calendar tabs can get repetitive and frustrating, especially when making an entry on the calendar. To open the calendar in a separate window, hold down the Shift Key and right-click on the Calendar tab.
Dragging & Dropping
You most likely already know that you can rearrange things on your Outlook Calendar by dragging and dropping. What you may not know, is that while using multiple windows (using tip above) you have the ability to drag items from your Inbox to your Calendar, which will then auto-schedule an appointment using the information in the subject and body of the email.
Adding color categories to calendar appointments allows you to scan, search, and visually associate similar items with total ease – AND it makes your calendar easy on the eyes! Once your categories are set up, simply click on the Categorize button when
scheduling an appointment, and select which category you would like to use.
We hope you’ll welcome the New Year with your most tech-savvy foot forward, and that these tips for using your Outlook Calendar will aid you in making 2016 one of your most efficient years!
