To change an event

Events are changed the same way as appointments or meetings, unless you have an all-day event such as a conference. By default, all-day events are defined as midnight to midnight. However, the time does not appear on your calendar as busy.

To block event time on your calendar, do the following:

  1. Open the event from your calendar.
  2. Clear the check box at All day event.
  3. Enter the Start time and End time, and then click Save & Close.
