Calendar I: Outlook calendar basics

Calendar before using categories and after


Want birthdays to catch your eye and personal appointments to stand out from business ones? Outlook can make it happen. Introducing…colored categories! Colored categories let you name your colors (and change the names when you want to). Use colors to make certain entries stand out at a glance.

We'll show you how to color-code calendar entries in the practice session at the end of this lesson. If you want to learn about color-coding your e-mail using the same system, see Get out of your Inbox with Outlook 2007.

Note     If you used labels in Outlook 2003 to color-code your calendar entries, you may be wondering, will you need to edit each calendar item individually to use the new system? Happily, the answer is no. When you upgrade to Outlook 2007, your calendar labels will automatically be updated to colored categories. For more about this, see the Quick Reference Card at the end of this course.
