Scheduling Events


An event is an activity that lasts 24 hours or longer. Some events are recurring, meaning that they occur regularly at certain times. You can set a reminder to have Outlook remind you of an event. Outlook sets an 18 hour reminder on all events by default, which can be changed.

An event can be scheduled by:
- Using the Action menu
- Using the New Appointment button and checking "All day event" on the form
- Using the File menu to select the New Appointment form
