Birthdays I: Keep track of birthdays and anniversaries

Cake, card and calendar
Enter annual events such as birthdays and anniversaries into your Outlook 2007 calendar. Then, set reminders for the events so that you don't forget about them.

About this course

This course includes:

  • One self-paced lesson and one practice session for hands-on experience. Practice requires Outlook 2007.
  • A short test at the end of each lesson; tests are not scored.
  • A Quick Reference Card you can take away from the course.

Goals

After completing this course you will be able to:

  • Create annually recurring events in your calendar to keep track of birthdays and anniversaries.
  • Set up reminders so that you have time to purchase a card or gift.

This is the first of two courses about working with the calendar and contacts in Outlook. Once you've finished this course, see Birthdays II: Linking contacts and birthdays to learn about adding shortcuts to your calendar and contacts so that you can easily switch between them.


Outlook makes it easy to stay on top of important dates such as birthdays and anniversaries. Did you forget your mom's birthday last year? This year, let Outlook remind you.

Once you've entered a date in Outlook, you can view that date in the calendar and create a reminder, so that you have enough time to buy and send a card or gift.
