- [Instructor] Sometimes we have a meeting…that occurs multiple times but…that doesn't necessarily mean that…recurrence is the best way to schedule it.…This can be true for an appointment…that we want to have every week,…but the actual date changes based…on events during the week.…There are two easy ways to create a copy…of an appointment or a meeting.…The first is using drag and drop.…If I realize once I've started working…on these employee evaluations that…I need more time for this,…I can point to the employee evaluations…and I can drag and create more space.…
I'm also going to minimize the daily task list…so that I can see the afternoon.…Hold control down and drag and drop…employee evals, I simply need to be…holding control when I release…the mouse button,…and that makes a copy.…If I'm no longer holding it down,…if I drag and I release control first,…notice that I'm going to simply be moving it.…So it's important that I hang on to…control until the point where I have…actually dropped this item.…
If you don't care for drag and drop…
