    Hi gang,
    I have several meetings that will take place during the coming year. They will happen on specific dates. The occurence options Outlook offers me do not apply. How can I set up meetings for specific dates and invite people to them (without having to do them one by one, of course).
    tks

    Outlook doesn't provide a recurring option that can be fed a list of dates with no apparent date recurrence sequence. Your best option is to create the first meeting, make a copy of it, and then paste the copy to the additional days you want to set the meeting and edit as necessary.

    Thanks John. I just wanted to avoid for the invitees to receive 8 invitations (hence 8 emails). So if there is no other way, I will do just that.
    tks again.

    I was mulling this over after I answered, and there may be a way, but it's complicated - for you. Without creating it myself to test, which means you have to pay attention to the steps and the dialogs presented, you could try this:

    1. Create a recurring meeting where the first instance is when you want and the rest of the meetings about when you want (monthly, weekly, what ever.
    2. Save the meeting series WITHOUT SENDING the invitation - click Save instead of Send. Outlook will raise dialogs questing the fact you have not sent the invitations, but proceed on regardless.
    3. Find the later instances of the meeting and change the dates and times to what you want. (If this breaks the recurrence relationship, this idea won't work.)
    4. Reopen the meeting series and now SEND the invitations.
