Block Time

Block time off in your calendar so others know when you are out of the office, in another meeting, or just busy doing something else.

  1. Open Outlook.
  2. Select the Calendar icon.
  3. Select New Appointment to create a new appointment.
  4. Type a subject, such as "Winter Break" or "Annual Leave" -- Note: the subject is only visible to you!
  5. Specify the date range you will take leave in the Start time and End time boxes.
  6. Check the All day event option if you are taking the entire day.
  7. Select Out of Office from the Show As drop down list under the menu options.
  8. Click Save & Close to save the event.
While this is helpful for people checking your calendar, it is different from an Out of Office auto-reply people get when they email you.
