Create a meeting Request

Do you need to quickly schedule a meeting with an Outlook contact or members of a distribution list?

Step by Step

  1. Open your Contacts folder, and drag a contact or distribution list onto the Calendar icon on your Outlook Shortcuts bar. This will automatically create a new meeting request addressed to the person or group.
  2. Enter start and end times for your meeting, and select any other options you want. Then click Send.

Note: You can also drag contacts into your Inbox to create new messages addressed to them or into your Tasks folder to assign them a task.
