  1. Adam says:

    I downloaded the excel file and imported it into Outlook, but now my calendar shows me as “busy” for the entire day, every day for the next 7.5 years. Is there a fix for this?


    • Rabbi Dov Linzer says:

      This is very unusual. Outlook defaults all day events to Free, and it tends to be difficult to default them to busy. See here. Does the same thing happen for birthdays and anniversaries? If someone else has a suggestion, please post it.

      If you want to reverse what you did, in Calendar, go to View / Current View/ / All Appointments. You can sort the events alphabetically and they should be able to easily delete by clicking a group of items and deleting at once.

      An alternative would be to make these 1 minute events that start at 7:00 AM. I can see about creating such a file.

      • Morris says:

        You have to create a column entitled “Show Time As” and give it a field value of zero. If you want the file I tinkered with to make it an all day appointment without taking over the day or creating reminders, I’m happy to email it to you.

    Hi R’ Dov
