The Quick and Easy Way to Enter Appointments in Outlook 2013

For some appointments you need a quick-and-dirty method of entering them in Outlook 2013. Some appointments don’t need much explanation. If you’re having lunch with Mom on Friday, there’s no reason to make a big production out of entering the appointment.

Here's how to enter these appointments quickly:


Make sure the calendar is open in a view that shows the hours of the day in a column.

For example, the Work Week view does.


Click the starting time of your appointment and type a description.

Lunch with Mom works.


Press Enter.

Your appointment is now part of your official schedule, faster than you can say, “Waiter!”
