You may not have Outlook contacts for all the important people in your life. For example, you may not have created a contact for your spouse, but you certainly do want to remember your beloved's birthday. You can do this by entering an annual event into the calendar directly.
To enter a new recurring event, you would right-click the top of the appropriate day and select New Recurring Event.
This is the first step. Don't worry about remembering all these steps now. Just follow along to get a general idea of how it's done. You'll get a chance to walk through the process again in the practice session. The steps are also listed in the Quick Reference Card at the end of this course.
