Chapter 4. The Calendar

Chapter 4. The Calendar

You use the Calendar to record scheduled activities known as events. Unlike a task (a to-do item, as explained in Chapter 5), an event must be assigned to a specific date and, optionally, a time. Appointments, meetings, and trips are all examples of events. Events can have a scheduled beginning and end time, be designated as all-day occurrences, or span multiple days. You can also invite others to attend your events and track whether they accept or decline.

Although most events (such as business meetings) are onetime occurrences, you can create recurring events that happen on a repeating schedule. Your computer club might meet every third Friday of the month at 7:30 p.m., for example.

To make it easy to remember and respond to an upcoming event, you can set a timed reminder for it. At the designated time or a period in advance of the event, a pop-up window (Office Notifications) appears—even if Office 2004 isn't currently running.

✓ Tip

  • As is the case with other Entourage components, you can customize the Calendar by setting preferences. For details, see Chapter 8.
