Setting Calendar Options

Options related to the Outlook Calendar are also accessed from the Preferences tab of the Options dialog box. For example, if you don't work a typical Monday through Friday work week, you can change your default Calendar settings in the Calendar Options dialog box to reflect this. Suppose your work week runs from Tuesday through Saturday and your workday is from 4 a.m. to 12 noon. You can make changes to the Calendar so that it reflects your actual work week. You can also set your time zone and add holidays to your calendar.

To make changes to the Calendar Options, open the Calendar Options dialog box:

  1. Click the Calendar Options button on the Preferences tab of the Options dialog box (see Figure 20.5). In the Calendar Work Week area, set your starting and ending time (the default is 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.).

    Figure 20.5. Calendar options are set in the Calendar Options dialog box.


  2. To set the time zone for your area, click the Time Zone button, and then choose the zone that describes your location.

  3. To add holidays to your calendar, click the Add Holidays button. Then, check the box representing your country (U.S. is the default) and click OK . Outlook imports the holidays from your selected region to the calendar.

  4. When you finish setting the options in this dialog box, return to the Preferences tab by clicking OK .

The Preferences tab also allows you to set options for your other Outlook items, such as Tasks, the Journal, and Notes. For information on setting preferences for Tasks, the Journal, or Notes, see Lessons 14, 15, or 16, respectively.
