How can I make a seperate calendar for a project?
If I put all my appointments, meetings, etc into one calendar there is no way to look at just one project or type of appointments?
Can I create multiple calendars for projects and etc. such as a calendar for time off that includes vacation, doctor and dentist appts etc?
Will the reminders and appointments still show up in my inbox the same way with multiple calendars?

    You can make a separate calendar by going to the Calendar View, then clicking Open Calendar, then Create New Blank Calendar.

    Reminders for your appointments will appear, but I don't believe that you will see the additional appointments on the calendar in the inbox.

    Hi, Dragon0x40.

    @BusyMama is correct.  You won't see the appointments on your main calendar.  You'll have to switch to each calendar or open as many of them as you can side-by-side.  As an alternative to multiple calendars you could put everything on one calendar and use categories to color code them.  That way you'd have a single calendar that showed everything.

    I think that I will use both ideas.

    The category color code for almost everything and then if I have a project that has mutiple deadlines, meetings, etc. then I will make an additional calendar so I can quickly take a look at upcoming or past events.
