Maintain Calendar Harmony (Short Version)

Following these guidelines will help keep your calendar healthy and happy.

This article applies to: Email for Faculty and Staff

  • Mobile devices create the most problems; they are best used for viewing only, not for creating or responding to events.

  • Send all updates to all recipients.

  • Always respond when accepting or declining.

  • When possible, use Outlook (Windows) rather than Outlook (Mac), Outlook on the Web, or Apple Mail, especially for recurring meetings.

  • Have only one person manage a calendar (for example, either you do it, or the person you delegated to does it, but not both).

  • Keep recurring meetings simple. If one meeting (in a series) is different, make it a separate meeting.

  • Keep your software up-to-date.

  • Check your time-zone settings.
