It may happen again and again, but that doesn't mean you have to enter it again and again. To tell Outlook that an appointment, meeting, or event occurs over, and over, and over, you use the Recurrence feature. The frequency of the activity is called its recurrence pattern.
As you can see with the Exercise appointment in the picture, a recurring appointment appears repeatedly and displays a recurrence icon .
To set up a recurrence pattern, open the appointment and click the Recurrence button in the Options group of the Appointment tab.
You'll get a chance to go through all of the steps for setting recurrence in the practice session at the end of this lesson.
