    Cancelled appointments (2003)

    Help - Is there a way in Outlook that if an appointment that I have planned within Outlook is cancelled by a client I had arranged to meet, I can keep the record of the planned appointment but show it in my diary as cancelled?

    I would like to keep a record of appointmentss cancelled by clients. My scheduling is manual and not "online"

    You could use categories. I'm not sure there is any other field that work allow you to customize it. (I'm looking at Outlook 2002.)

    In Outlook 2002, it's View | Current View | By Category.

    <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20> Hans and Jefferson, you lost me. How do you display cancelled appointments in that view? Don't cancelled appointments get removed from the Calendar? I'm missing somnething here!

    You wouldn't "cancel" them the normal way, but assign them to a custom category "Cancelled", and create custom views to filter this category.

    Doh! The Buddha of Enlightenment is revealed to me! And you could perhaps set the time as "Free".
