Managing a Calendar in Microsoft Outlook 2013

Inserting the contents of a document into a calendar item

Sometimes, you’ll want to insert the contents of a document into an Outlook 2013 meeting or other calendar item, rather than attach the item to it. Inserting the contents into the calendar item makes it possible for you and others to view those contents without opening the attached source document.

Insert contents of a document

  1. With an appointment, meeting, or event open, on the ribbon, click the Insert tab.

  2. Click in the notes area of the item.

  3. Back on the ribbon, in the Text group, click Object.

  4. In the Object dialog box, click the Create From File tab.

  5. Click Browse.

  6. In the Browse dialog box, locate and select the object that you want to add.

  7. Click Insert.

  8. In the Object dialog box, click OK.

  9. Verify that the added object appears in the comment field.

  10. Click Save & Close (or Send Update).
