Use an appointment when you want to show that you're busy but no one else in your organization is involved. You might enter an appointment to block out time in your calendar when you need to meet with a client, visit the dentist, or research a project you're working on.
Ways to create an appointment
One quick way to create an appointment (or any calendar entry, for that matter) is to select the desired time, right-click, and use the shortcut menu, as we've shown in the example at number 3 of the picture. We've also shown other ways to get started creating an appointment in your Calendar.
From there, you would fill in the details and then save the appointment in your Calendar. You'll get a chance to practice creating appointments (and meetings and events) in the practice session at the end of this lesson.
Tip Did you know that you can drag a message from your Inbox to your Calendar to make it into a calendar entry? You’ll also do this in the practice session.
