    • About Scheduling Appointments
      • Activities you schedule are appointments, meetings or events.
      • Appointments . An appointment is an activity without other people. When you schedule an appointment, no email is sent to confirm the appointment. You can set recurring appointments.
      • Meetings . Meetings are appointments that include other people. When you create a meeting, you select attendees and send an email invitation to them. You can reschedule meetings and set up recurring meetings.
      • Events . An event is an activity that lasts all day. Events do not display as time on the calendar, they appear as a banner at the top of the calendar schedule.
    • Entering Appointment Details
    • Viewing an Attendee’s Calendar You can view another BardMail user’s ‘free’ time (if they’ve allowed it), by entering their name in the attendees box. This allows you to view the availability of meeting attendees when trying to schedule an appointment.
    • Viewing an Attendee’s Busy Schedule
    • The Meeting Request (E-mail)
    • An Accepted Meeting Request
