Hello,

While using Oulook Calander 2003 I could change the color of events as I completed them. Even if they were reoccuring events, I changed the color of each individual event as they were completed. This way with just one glance at my calander I could see what was left to be done.

But in 2007, I so far have not found a way to do this. If I try to change the color of one incidence of a reoccuring event it will only change the entire series, and this does not help me at all.

Does anyone know a way that I could change the color of one incidence of a reoccuring event in Outlook Calander 2007, or in some way flag or mark it as completed?

Thanks so much!

I'm not sure if a setting would be included in this or not. Worth a look

Thanks for that, but let me further explain.

With Outlook 2003 I could open up one occurance of a recurring event (such as a breakfast meeting that occurs every 2 weeks) and change it's category to 'Done', which also changes the color of that occurance on my calendar so I can easily see that I have completed that event.

But now with the new version, 2007, when I want to open one occurance of a recurring event I receive the following:

And that is the same as 2003, and is normal. So I open the one occurance and go to change the category to 'Done' (which will change the color) and I receive this:

That does not help at all. Changing the entire series is not what I want to do. I just want to mark each individual occurance as completed as I complete them somehow.

Any ideas?
