Outlook Calendar is not the only mail handling tool in Microsoft Office. Although it is the most comprehensive, it doesn’t necessarily let you complete your email handling. For example, it doesn’t display the whole year in the Calendar either. And Outlook only shows you one entry for the whole year. It doesn’t allow you to define a whole year as a group of dates. Neither do most scheduling tools. Here’s a list of reasons why Microsoft Outlook doesn’t need a Calendar.
Good Reasons to Use a Calendar

The Calendar in Outlook is used to define reminders, to store information about events on the calendar, and generally manage information you need to know about. It also shows information on alerts, tasks, and notes. Although you can edit it, I’m not aware of any way to edit or delete a Calendar item. (You can edit appointments, for example.)
For this reason, I never use it. I always search for a co-worker with a matching Facebook, Twitter, or other related account. I simply search that site for his or her picture, and it brings me to the profile. I don’t need anything else. I just need something to remind me of appointments and related information, particularly if I’m away from Outlook for a meeting.
You’ll notice I didn’t include a database or converter
That’s because there are too many good reasons to use Outlook, and if you need something to convert emails or other things, a database is the same thing.
You’ll notice I didn’t include much by way of features. This because I don’t need them. I have never had an email problem at all, and I’ve always been able to find something I needed without looking and looking and looking Outlook Calendar.
Imagine living in a world where you have to explain to someone about held leverage, risk, and other matters because you can’t use your computer to schedule a meeting or make a decision. I’m sure that man-hours are spent Campaigning instead of making the decisions that lead to resourcing.
But that is the life of a designer
They live and learn and get things done, and I’m sure you want them to. Getting organized is just part of the process.
- Add a calendar, and you have a system, and you no longer need to hunt around for your information.

- Add emails, and you have a record.
- Add a sense ofAdult DAY(s), and you have(s).
- Add a reminder, and you have a memory.
- Add a monitoring system, and you have a self- religiously monitoredmon monitored employee.
Adding a third-party may present challenges, but so what? The advantages of a user-friendly, automated, hassle-free program are more than the addition of features. Addition of subsystems may present problems, but so what? The only thing that matters is the result, and the Year 2010 starts to fall into that category.
