Tip 240 – Use simple words to set dates in Outlook appointments

If you need to set up an appointment in Outlook for next Tuesday, or this time next month, rather than spend time looking up the date, just type “Next Tuesday” or “Next Month” in the date field and then press the Tab key and Outlook will automatically insert the date for you.
This works with a lot of different natural descriptions for dates: “Next Week”, “2 weeks”, “This Wednesday” and even more complex dates such as “first Monday next month”.
