One of the powerful things about Outlook is the combination of access to your e-mail with your Calendar, your Contacts and your Tasks. So let's look at the Calendar information now. Now you can see some Calendar information from anywhere in Outlook simply by expanding the To-Do Bar. The top part of the To-Do Bar contains a date navigator as well as... Since we're focused on today, today's Calendar. So today's appointments, meetings, events, and tasks. We can also see in the bottom half, our Task list. Let's minimize the To-Do Bar.
To really get a look at the Calendar, you can go in the Navigation pane and click on the Calendar button, and that'll take you directly to your Calendar. So how do you view the Calendar? Well to start with, you need to choose a date here in the Calendar Navigator. And you can simply do that by clicking on a day somewhere in the Calendar, and of course you can move to different months using the arrows at the top. Let's focus back on today. We're currently viewing our Calendar in weekly format. Now if you choose, you can view it in a daily format.
Notice, since I chose daily format. It went to the first day of the week. If I want to go back to today, I can click on 13 to see today. And the weekly format has a couple of options here. You can say "You know what, I only want to show the work week, or I'd like to show the entire week." depending on what your preference is. Or you can view it in a monthly view. Monthly view, you have slightly different options in terms of what level of detail you'd like to display. A monthly Calendar with a lot of events in it can get quite cluttered, so you might want to cut down on the amount of detail. Let's go back to the weekly view.
Now in addition to using the Date Navigator, you can use the arrows here to navigate weeks. Want to see next week or the week after and then you can back up to the current week. And if you notice in the Date Navigator, as I move weeks, it changes the highlighted week, so you can tell by looking in the Date Navigator, the highlighted portion is what you're looking at here in the right-hand pane.
