Outlook Calendar Tip: Go Straight to a Future Date rather then Browsing to it

By: standss , Apr 24th, 2012

Do you need to make an appointment entry for a future date e.g. 20 January 2013, how can you get there?

Most of us would say:

  • Go to the Calendar
  • Change to Week View or Month View and BROWSE to the future date

You are right, this is one way of doing this BUT there is a much easier and faster way to JUMP to the future date.

Here is how you can jump straight to a future date:

  • Open Outlook
  • Go to the Calendar
  • Press CTRL+G on your keyword. This brings up a screen as show below:

Go to Date

  • In the Date: field, enter the future date e.g. 20-1-12
  • From the Show in: drop-down list select the view you would prefer
  • Click OK

You will now jump straight to the date entered, all you have to do is enter your appointment in the required time slot, Faster right?

Hope you find this tip useful.
