You probably have appointments that occur on a regular basis, daily, weekly, or monthly. Birthdays and anniversaries are recurring events; a weekly conference call is a recurring appointment.
You can create a new recurring appointment directly from the Calendar folder. Simply right-click on the appointment area and select New Recurring Appointment. A blank appointment form will open and the Appointment Recurrence dialog box will open automatically. To make an existing appointment into a recurring appointment, open the appointment and click the Recurrence button on the item's toolbar. This opens the Appointment Recurrence dialog box shown in Figure 12.9.
