    hide a private appointment (Outlook XP)

    I just switched from using Palm Desktop Calendar to Outlook. So far so good, but how do you hide a private appointment? I am not using Microsoft exchange server, so it is only on a stand alone PC.
    In Palm Desktop, I had private appointments "hidden" in that they didn't even show up unless I went to Security, clicked Show hidden appointment, and entered in a password.
    Any option like that with Outlook?

    Thanks,
    Rick

    Outlook never hides private appointments from you yourself (there seems to be little point in that <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>), only from others in Exchange who have permission to view your calendar.

    Do you plan to continue using the Palm? If so, you might want to investigate whether the sync software supports that feature and, if so, how, before investing a lot of time re-creating/re-migrating data.

    Adding to Hans' explanation, in an Exchange setting Private Appointments in a Users published Calendar show only as unavailable time, no subject or other information is available to any other user. (Not sure if this is still true if the calendar is fully delegated, but I think it is still true.) You wouldn't want people to request meetings at such times you're unavailable because the meeting is completely hidden. (Don't get me started on people whio don't block their Calendars out for travel time, only for meetings.)
