Need help with appointments on Outlook 2007



I have a small business and I manage my employees by creating calendars and putting appointments on these calendars (all of them recurring) and each appointment tells then what needs to be done. I need a way for them to be able to somehow mark it as complete. This can be done by changing the color or anything of that nature, I just need to find an easy way for them to mark individual occurrences out of the series as completed.

I know you can change the category color, but you can only do that to an entire series, not individual occurrences.

Also, we've experimented with them just editing the title of the appointment and putting a -C for completed, but weird things ended up happening where appointments would disappear and only re appear when you restarted Outlook, so that approach won't work.

Any help is appreciated, thank you.

You can't put them in the calendar but you can make a calendar view of the
tasks folder. Personally, I would create the appointments in Excel and
import them as individual appointments. Or copy the recurrence and
paste -this makes a single event you can mark 'done'.
