When you create an appointment with one of your contacts, you may want to refer to information stored about that contact. This article describes a quick way to access that information by adding a shortcut to the appointment.
To create an appointment with a shortcut to a contact, follow these steps:
- Click Contacts on either the Outlook Bar or in the Folder list.
- Locate the contact that you want, and then use the drag-and-drop operation to add the contact to the Calendar on either the Outlook Bar or in the Folder list.
- Click Copy Here as Appointment with Shortcut on the shortcut menu.
A contact shortcut appears in the Notes field of the new appointment entry. The new appointment entry is the large unlabeled window that is located at the bottom of the form.
- Complete the form by filling in the details of the appointment, and then click Save and Close.
