An Outlook user had this question:
I upgraded to Outlook 2007 & I'm missing a feature that was in Outlook 2003: right-click a contact to create an appointment for them & have this stored in the contact's activities tab. How do I do this in Outlook 2007?
In Outlook 2007, Outlook 2010, and Outlook 2013, the new message and meeting with contact commands were moved to the Create menu on the context menu.
Right click on the Contact and choose Create to access the commands.
You can also select or open the Contact and use the Actions, Create menu in Outlook 2007.
In Outlook 2010, select the contact and use the commands on the Communicate chunk on the Home ribbon.
If the contact is open in either Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2010, use the commands on the Communicate chunk on the "Contact" ribbon.
Tip: To convert a meeting request to an appointment, click the Cancel Meeting button. This will remove the invitation portion but leave the contact linked to the appointment, so you can see it in Activities or in the People pane.
