Input absence in Outlook-calendar

At the UiO, we are encouraged to post a vacation and other planned absence in the calendar so that others can see that we are out of the office and when we return. Here's how to do it:

1. Open the calendar and double-click somewhere on the first day of absence.

2. Create a full-time event called Holiday or what is suitable for your absence, and remember to select the box for busy to show that you are not available.

3. Repeat for all days you will be absent, or create one recurring event for all days you will be away. Read the instructions for creating a recurrent event. Select Daily as recurrence pattern, and fill out the range of recurrence (start and end date), and click OK. The days you are away are now marked in your calendar so that everyone who checks your calendar knows when you're gone and when you're back.
