Ideas for keeping canceled appt/meeting on the calendar (Outlook 2010)
Posted on 2011-10-25
I'm working with a user using Outlook 2010. She has several recurring meetings setup. On occasion, a meeting will be canceled well in advance. For example, there might be a Monday 10am staff meeting, but it's canceled for Monday, Feb 13, 2012.
Clearly, we can just delete the occurence. However, then it doesn't show as canceled on the calendar and the user might just go about her normal Monday routine, which includes that 10am meeting. Another problem is just having the event not show up and having the user think that she deleted it unintentionally.
We could instead edit the occurence to show "CANCELED" or something in the subject.
I'm looking to suggest a better way. Graying it out somehow or crossing it out would be even better. When she called I thought there must be a way to mark an event as canceled, but there doesn't seem to be.
We don't have to worry about other people scheduled or cancellation emails - she created the events herself.
Suggestions would be appreciated.
