Managing a Calendar in Microsoft Outlook 2013

Inserting an Outlook item into a calendar item

In Outlook 2013, you can insert objects, files, and Outlook items into your calendar items. The capability to insert Outlook items means that you can insert contacts, email messages, and other Outlook items into an appointment, meeting, or event item. For example, if you are having a meeting to discuss a project with an outside partner, you can insert the partner’s contact(s) into the meeting invitation so that other attendees will have them.
