Just about everyone is familiar with Outlook’s calendar feature. The lion’s share of most company’s use it exclusively.
Depending upon the view you use in your calendar, you will see all the days in consecutive order for a particular period of time. That is the display that most of use need and use. There are times however, when you may want to view non-consecutive dates. There is no view for that in your Outlook calendar, but there is a trick in Windows that you can use to work around this snag and that is click and hold down your CTRL key whil clicking objects to create a group. You can also use the same trick to view non-consecutive dates to create a group of dates.
Follow along below:
- In Calendar view, display the Date Navigator if necessary.
- In the Layout group, click the View tab and then the Navigation Pane and select Normal from the resulting menu.
- Click March 15 in the Date Navigator to add it to the Calendar view.
- Click and hold down your CTRL key.
- While holding down your CTRL key, click March 18.
- Continue to hold down your CTRL key and display April by clicking the small right arrow at the top of the Date Navigator.
- Continue to hold down the CTRL key and click April 1.
Outlook will display the dates in consecutive order, not the order in which you click them.
Anyone who uses MS Outlook on a daily basis will find lots of uses for this!
