Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Changing the time scale, part of Outlook 2013: Tips, Tricks, and Shortcuts.
…By default, Outlook breaks each hour into 30-minute segments.…So this is 8:00 to 8:30 in the morning and 8:30 to 9:00.…But you can make this more or less granular to meet your work needs.…For example, if you find that you are often creating appointments that…start at quarter after or quarter to or last for 45 minutes.…In the day, work week or week view you have access to the time scales.…Switch to any of them.…Right click in the time scale and choose 15 minutes.…
Now you see, I have four sections for each hour so…if I need to create a 45-minute meeting, that's very easy to do.…15-minute time slots.…Some people like an even more granular time scale.…For example, ten minutes.…They can then have six divisions inside of each hour.…Notice that I'm scrolling a lot more.…But I have room to squeeze in 20-minute appointments.…And I know at least one person who uses six minutes, so…they have ten splits every hour.…
Ten different things that they can do that take about six minutes apiece.…So they can track their time very, very clearly.…
