    All Day Event (Any)

    I have a client with a new employee who claims that in her last job, they used Outlook and when she set an all day event it would actually block 8:00-5:00 and not be what I understand to be an all day event. (midnight-midnight - show time as free).
    Am I missing something? Is there a setting I can't find?

    She is probably referring to the option to set the start time and end time. In OL 2003 (and I suspect previous versions), Tools>Options>Calendar Options> and then set the start and end times.

    Changing this setting does nothing to effect an all day event?

    It depends what your definition of "All day" is. It will block off whatever period you set as your start and end times. If it is set for 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, that period will be indicated. If you select 12:00 midnight to 12:00 midnignt, that period will be indicated.

    Re: All Day Event (Any)

    It is not my definition of all day. Outlook defaults to 8:00 to 5:00 in the options you mentioned, but regardless of this setting, when you are creating an appointment and click the box for "All day event", the beginning and end time boxes go away. It is just an all day event.

    Is there a way to make Outlook doing what you are suggesting. In one or two steps create an "all day event" which corresponds to the start and end times in Options?

    Not that I know of apart from creating the event and then going to the scheduling tab and defining the hours. But then, that defeats the "All Day" event doesn't it? I think that possibly the employee was incorrect about blocking off only 8:00 to 5:00. If you go to the day that the all day event is scheduled for, the 8-5 slot is highlighted in a paler colour than the rest of the day, but the whole day is still indicated as free (or busy or out of office, etc.).
