The next type of item you might require in your Calendar is an all-day event, or simply an event. An event is something that, unlike an appointment or a meeting, dosen't block out that time as busy, whereas an appointment or a meeting like these ones in my calendar currently for this week will block that time out and I can't do anything else during that time. The flight to England here, that's an all-day event. So, even though I got that in my calendar for all day, there's other things I can still do with that time. So while I'm flying around here, I can organize my e-mail or begin a proposal. Now if I'd like to create a new event, for example, to attend a conference next week, I'll just click Next to go ahead to next week and now I'll create a new event.
Now there's a couple of ways I can do this. One is, I can just add an appointment with... the Email Security Conference, and when I double-click that to open it up, I can choose this check box to make it an all-day event, and then I can make some other changes here. I'm just going to cancel this though and show you the other way you can do it. Let's get rid of that. If you put your mouse up here, you'll see a button pop up that says "Click to add event." So I'm just going to click that, and put in a new all-day event for the Email Security Conference.
If I double-click and open this up, I have some other options I can set. Now, maybe this is a three-day conference, so it's going be from Wednesday to Friday, all-day event. Now one of the big things that happens with an event as I mentioned, is it doesn't mark the time as Busy, so you can see up here, the time is marked as Free. If you want to mark it as Tentative or Busy, you can do so. You need any additional information, put it in here, maybe I want to put in directions or other information I might need, the exact address of the Congress Center.
And of course you can set some more of the options as you can with other items in your Calendar. Let's Save this. So here we've got the Email Security Conference. That's an all day event that goes over three entire days. That doesn't stop me from having other items in the Calendar over these days, because that time is still set as free.
