How do I change the default increments in a new appointment using Outlook 2007? Right now they go every 30min, I would like to have them every 5 or 10 minutes if it's even possible. To get to the screen press CTRL, ALT, A at the same time within Outlook.

I've attached a screenshot

Thanks

This is a Date Time field called: Duration

The default for the field is set to 30 minutes.

It cannot be changed.

----------------------------------
Alternatively you could customize this appointment form.
Set the start time to 8:15 a.m. by manually typing it in.

Then if you click on the Down Arrow for End Time Options, you will see these times change to
8:45
9:15
9:45
10:15

However, as you can see the duration is still 30 minutes apart from each other.

Then, if more than one person needs this field to be like this, you would have to make sure eveyone has this form or has access to this form

---------------

You could also When in Calendar go to
Views>Current View>Customize Current View>Other Settings
Set the Time Scale to be 5, 10, or 15 Minutes

Then when an appointment is created for 8:00am the automatic default end time is 8:15am




Personally, I would think it to be easier to just type in the desired start and stop time when the appointment is created.

I didn't think it was possible either, but felt it was a good idea to ask a Expert first. Thanks for a prompt response.
