Outlook 2003 - Combined Calendar View


S

seven_percent

Background:
I am using Outlook 2003 but syncing with my iPhone via MobileMe. If I
look at my calendar on the MobileMe website or on my iPhone, I get
really nice views with the various sub-calendars I have created and a
master view of everything on one calendar.

E.g. I can turn-off my Athletic Club calendar to make the fitness
class times disappear. I can turn-off my personal calendar to only
see my business appts. When the sync occurs, the sub-calendars that I
created in MobileMe are created in Outlook and the items are perfectly
in sync. If I create an appt. on my iPhone, it will appear within a
few minutes both online and in my Outlook calendar. All is good from
a syncing perspective. So, what's missing? There is no apparent way
to make a combined view calendar in Outlook 2003, that I can tell.

Question:
Is there a way to make a "roll-up" or "combined view" calendar in
Outlook that displays the items from all sub-calendars so that it
functions like the main calendar in MobileMe and on the iPhone
calendar?

Many of us do that by having only one calendar and then by assigning
categories to the various events. We then create views based on those
categories so that when we choose, say, the "Athletic Club" view, only those
events assigned the "Athleic" category show. When we choose the, say,
"Business" view, only those events assigned the "Business" category show. We
can have as many "calendars" (which are just views of the one single calendar)
as we choose. If we want to see it all, we just use one of the default
"Day/Week/Month" views.

No, not in outlook 2003 - you need to use categories. In 2007 you can
overlay calendars.

Cool. Thanks for the informed response.
