Using the Outlook Scheduling Assistant
The Outlook Scheduling Assistant is a quick and easy way to schedule appointments with multiple participants. All of us have a default permission of “Free/Busy” on each other’s calendars. This allows us to see only that something is scheduled, not what is scheduled.
These examples are from Outlook 2010, but this also applies to Outlook 2007, 2011, 2013 with small modifications.
On Windows computers, Outlook can be found by clicking the Start icon and navigating to the Microsoft Outlook folder
under All Programs.
On Macintosh computers, Outlook can be found by navigating to the Applications folder in Finder and Selecting Outlook
under the Microsoft Office 2011 folder.
If you are not currently using Microsoft Outlook, please contact the SAIT Helpdesk or your local IT staff for assistance.
