Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating an appointment from an email or contact, part of Outlook 2007: Time Management with Calendar and Tasks.
In Outlook 2007, you don't need to create every single Calendar item from…scratch using the appointment form.…You can quickly create new appointments, new meetings, and new events from…existing Outlook Calendar items, from email messages, from contacts, and from tasks.…You probably already know that you can drag-and-drop an appointment to a…different day or to a different time in order to move it.…However, if you hold Ctrl as you drag-and- drop, you're actually creating a new item.…
So for example, if I'd like to review this draft proposal not just on Monday at…11, but also for example on Wednesday at 1, I hold Ctrl, I need to still be…holding Ctrl when I release my mouse button and what I get is a copy.…This is not really an Outlook feature as much as it is a Windows feature.…In Windows, if I drag a file from one location to another for example, one…folder to another on the same drive, I'm moving it.…But, if I hold Ctrl and drag, then I am actually creating a copy.…
If I have more than one calendar, I can actually drag an item from my calendar…
