You don't need to use a form to create a new appointment or event, you can lay out the time directly in the Outlook calendar. First display a view with the right level of detail (days, hours). Drag to select the hours or days; type to enter the title of the appointment or event. If you wish to add a location or other details, you can double click the item to open its form. Type the details, then save and close the form.
