Outlook 2007 - Prevent the Stop Time from Automatically Changing

Posted on 2009-12-16
Last Modified: 2012-05-08
Image 1 shows an Outlook Event with Start Time of 1:00 PM and and End Time of 1:30 PM.  Image 2 shows the same event with the Start Time changed to 1:15 PM.  Is it possible to tab out of the Start Time field w/o the Stop Time automatically changing to 1:45 PM (Image 3)?

    as far as i, this is how it is designed.

    As a workaround, just drag the start of the event to the required time from the calendar you are expanding a window. This works instead of manually changing the start/finish time.

    No, you would have to use a custom form to remove the event handler that changes the time.

    Just elaborating on what already been said.
    You cannot stop this.

    When creating an Appointment you are using IPM.Appointment
    The default duration of this appointment is 30 Minutes.

    This is evident if you open a New Appointment.
    Select Developer Tab
    Design this Form

    Select the "All Fields" tab
    Use the Drop Down "Select From"
    Choose Date and Time Fields.

    Here you will see duration:  30 minutes.

    This is the default field that set this behaviour.

    This field cannot be changed.
