Managing a Calendar in Microsoft Outlook 2010

Updating Calendar Information

Outlook lets you edit a meeting, appointment, or event information saved in the Calendar folder. You might, for example, need to modify the time an appointment starts or ends, change where a meeting is held, or adjust the date of an event. When you change a meeting, you can send new meeting messages to attendees to announce the change.

Change an Appointment

  1. Click the Calendar icon on the Navigation Pane.

  2. Double-click the appointment you want to change. (If you open a recurring appointment, Outlook asks whether you want to change the occurrence or the series.)
