Add holidays to your calendar (Microsoft Outlook) *

Hello and welcome to the first tip of 2016. Hope you had a relaxing break. If you want to know how long you have to wait until the next public holiday, why not add them to your Outlook calendar.

Here's how:

  1. On the File tab, click on Options. (In previous versions of Outlook, Options can be found under Tools.)
  2. Click on Calendar (or type the letter c).
  3. In the Outlook Options dialog box, under Calendar options (second from the top) click on Add Holidays.
  4. If you do a lot of business with people in other countries, tick that country's check box.
  5. Press ENTER or click OK.

By the way, the next bank holiday in England and Wales is Friday 25 March (Good Friday).

Finally, I am proud to announce that it's our 15th birthday. (And we don't look a day over 10!) I'd like to thank our clients for the opportunity to work on some amazing projects, our associates for bringing their talent to our business and our all-important course participants who selected us to help make the most of their software packages. What a wonderful bunch of clever clogs you are!
