Calendar issue - not include weekends

I would like to know if it is possible to schedule a multi-week event in Outlook where I select the beginning and ending date, but it only adds it to the weekdays and not the weekend that is included in the range out?

If I have a 3 or 4 week project, I will likely not be working on it on the weekends, so it would be nice to be able to select a checkbox to either include or not include any weekend days that are in the calendar items range.

The only way I know to do this is by scheduling multiple 5 day long events.

I think the easiest way to do this is to:

1) Set up a new calendar entry (say on Monday 9am - 5pm)

2) Set the start and end date to that day (i.e. it's an appointment that only occurs on that day)

3) Set the appointment to recur.  In the recurrence settings, set it to "Daily", then "Weekdays".  Set the Range to "End By" and the end date.

Hope this sorts it.

That's a great idea.  Until MS puts a checkbox on the create new calendar item screen that allows you to include or not include the weekends, I will go with this method.  Thanks!
