New Outlook Calendar best practices guidance for Outlook 2007, Outlook 2010, and Outlook 2013


If you frequently work with meetings in Outlook, it is very likely that at some point you read the Outlook meeting requests: Essential do’s and don’ts article. However, you probably noticed that this older document only generally applies to newer Outlook versions. Over the last few years, many improvements were made to the Outlook Calendar. These improvements have made many of the recommendations in the older document unnecessary.

The new Best practices when using the Outlook Calendar document is exclusively for Outlook 2007, Outlook 2010, and Outlook 2013 clients. It supplements (not replaces) the Essential do’s and don’ts document. The older document still applies to Outlook 2003 and earlier versions. 

Read the entire article carefully. You will notice there are many changes, including clearly marked sections directed at Exchange mailbox users.  

This newly published best practices document is the culmination of many months of work by numerous individuals.

We are sure you will find it to be very helpful.
