Learn how to access your Microsoft Exchange account online using Outlook Web App (OWA). In this course, author Gini Courter takes you on a tour of OWA, and shows how to send, receive, and manage your email on the web. Learn the ins and outs of tagging and organizing your email and discover how to create appointments, request meetings, and view multiple calendars. Plus, find out how to add, group, and search for contacts and use the task feature to manage your to-do list effectively.
Sometimes you'll create an appointment, you'll block off some time on your calendar and then you'll go oh! Not so much. I need to get rid of that or I need to modify it. Now if all you need to do is modify it, you can select the appointment and you have the choice to move it, so I can drag it for example and say let's hold this at a different time at 3:15 instead of at 4. It's going to drag in the same increments that it already had, so notice that I'm getting 30 minutes at a time but on the quarter hours.
If I need to change its entire time, the easiest thing to do is to open it up and to actually change the time and say, we're actually going to do this starting at two instead. And if I need to change the duration then, I'll change the end time as well and I can resave this. So that's one way to modify this. If I need to make it longer I can stretch the time out because it has handles, that works. So these are ways that I can modify this appointment and I can even move it to another day on my calendar here using drag and drop. Or I can say I want to actually move this to Friday.
So we'll move it to Friday and save it and close it. But what if I just don't want disappointment at all? We can't have this phone call this week; we don't know when we are going to have the call. Well with the appointment selected, I simply clicked Delete. Don't do this casually because as soon as I click Delete it's gone. I'm not prompted to delete it, I'm not asked if I wanted to delete it, it's just gone. And if you're thinking well, what about Ctrl+Z doesn't that do undo? The answer would be, not in this case. So I modify appointments, but if I want to delete them, once I delete them they're removed for my calendar. Where does it go? It actually goes to the same Deleted Items folder, but you can't recover it from there.
In deleting it I marked it is canceled and it's really basically gone. So if I want to create that appointment again, I'll create it again from scratch. That's how I modify and cancel appointments in OWA.
