Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting calendar options, part of Outlook 2007: Time Management with Calendar and Tasks.
As I noted in earlier movies there are options that you can set for the calendar…views particularly for this day, week, month view that determine what you'll see…and how it will be displayed.…So in order to set options for the calendar in Outlook 2007 click on tools and…then choose Options to open Options dialog box and then in the section that says…Calendar we are going to go ahead and set Calendar Options, but first note that…the default reminder is set right here.…
So right now when you create an appointment there's a reminder set automatically…15 minutes ahead of time.…If most of your appointments are in the same building or you're on a reasonably…small campus for your business, 15 minutes might be plenty of time.…But if many of your meetings require you to get in a car and go somewhere else…or catch a light rail or take a bus, then you might want longer for your default time.…So I drive almost everywhere I go and I have changed my default time to an hour…just to leave me enough time to actually get to appointments.…
