To create a new appointment, click within the Scheduler time cell area to select cell(s). A smart tag will appear shortly:

SmartTag

Click it to invoke the default popup menu.

NewAppMenu

Menu items, highlighted in the picture, are intended for creating new appointments. By default they are as follows:

  1. New Appointment. It invokes the Edit Appointment dialog shown below.

    The Start and End time values are initially set to the beginning and ending boundaries of the current date and time selection. The Show time as field is set to Busy . The Resource field value is set to the resource to which the selected cell belongs, although it may be Any, when appointments are not grouped by resources.

    Fill in the Subject and Location fields. If necessary, drop some lines of text into the Description text box, and they will be shown within an appointment in either Day View or Work Week View.

    You can switch the appointment's Reminder on, for future notifications.

  2. New All Day Event. Invokes the Edit Event window, which is used to create a new all-day appointment (also called 'all-day event'). The window is the same as the Edit Appointment, except that, in this case, the All day event option is checked, its time range is measured in days (not hours) and marked as Free. The appointment can be transformed into the all-day event and vice-versa by checking this box.
  3. New Recurring Appointment. All appointments maintained by the Scheduler can either be simple (non-recurring), which happen only once in the specified time interval, or recurring, which occur many times in the same time interval on different days.

    Selecting this menu item invokes the Edit Appointment window, used to create a new appointment, extended with the Recurrence part, which allows the recurrence pattern to be specified for the new appointment.
