Create a meeting request or appointment

A meeting is a calendar event that you send to other people. You create a meeting the same way you do an appointment, but you invite attendees.

  1. On the Outlook navigation bar, click the App Launcher, and then click Calendar.

  2. Under the Outlook Calendar navigation bar, click New.

  3. Under Details, add a title and location.

  4. Choose a start and end time. You can also select one of these optional items:

    • All day: Check this box if this is an all day event.

    • Private: Check this box if you don't want others to see the details of this calendar event.

    • Repeat: Select one of the options from the list to make this a recurring meeting or appointment, and then set the dates that you want the recurring event to span using the two new From and To boxes.

  5. In the Reminder box, adjust the time of the reminder if you need to - by default it's set to 15 minutes prior to the event.

  6. If you want to send an email reminder to yourself (or to the participants, if this is a meeting), click Add an email reminder and provide this additional information:

    • Email reminder: Choose when the email reminder will be sent.

    • Send reminder to: Choose Me if you only want to send the reminder to yourself (such as an appointment) or All attendees if you want to send it to everyone in the meeting.

    • Reminder message to send: Fill this out with the message you want to send, and then click Save.

  7. Under People, enter the names or aliases of the people you want to invite.

  8. Under the Outlook navigation bar, click Save if this is an appointment you created for yourself, or click Send if this is a meeting with attendees.
