Microsoft Entourage 2008

Modifying Events & Tasks

Entourage's Calendar feature allows you to keep track of your events, such as appointments and meetings, or tasks, such as reports coming due. Entourage can keep track of these duties for you, and you can even set an automatic reminder. Often times you will need to make changes to your events and tasks because times and dates can change or you may need to adjust settings. Entourage's Calendar allows you to easily make any modifications necessary. The following sections instruct you on how to modify or delete events and tasks.

Entourage provides you with several ways to alter events and tasks. Sometimes you will need to access the Events dialog box to make the required changes. Other times, you can drag-and-drop the event to a new time. The process for changing a task is similar to that of an event; however, you cannot modify a task by moving it in your calendar.
