Schedule events in Outlook for Windows

Whether you're scheduling an appointment for yourself or setting up a meeting, Outlook gives you all the features you need to find the right time for everyone.

As you switch from G Suite Calendar to Outlook, there are a few differences in names to be aware of, like attendees instead of guests or interchanging appointment with event.

Create an appointment

  1. In the calendar, select New Appointment.

  2. Add a title, start and end time, location, and other details.

  3. Select Save & Close.

    Note: Any appointment can become a meeting if you Invite Attendees.
