Adding Repeating – but Not Recurring – Appointments in the Outlook Calendar

The MS Outlook calendar lets users easily add recurring appointments by entering them into the calendar and then adding a frequency by clicking on the “recurrence” button. This works well for events that occur on a regular schedule – daily, weekly, monthly, etc.  However, you may find that you need to schedule events that happen frequently but do not fall into a specific pattern.  One easy way to add an appointment to multiple non-recurrent days is to copy the appointment. Simply create the appointment, then in the calendar view select  it and hold down the <Ctrl> key. Then drag and drop the appointment to other days as needed. If the time for the event  changes simply drag the event to the correct time.
