2020.05 Outlook Calendar Views


Categories not only colorize your calendar, but they also allow you to build calendar views quickly. Think of categories as a way to determine at a glance whether an appointment is a court appearance, a client meeting, an internal meeting, or a personal appointment. When you assign a category with a unique color, it applies that color to your appointment, creating a rainbow of meaning across your day.

Filtered Views

Create custom views for information pertinent to you. Want to know when you’re scheduled for trial? If you’ve applied a trial category to those appointments, you can quickly filter based on category and save the filter as a new view. Otherwise, you filter for appointments with the word “trial” in the subject. The same goes for any other type of event.

Once you’ve saved a new view, you’re never more than a couple of clicks away from that information again.
