Outlook 2011 appointments not visible
 
Hey guys,

I very recently converted to a MacBook Pro from a pc -- very happy with the transition so far.

One problem I'm having is with the calendar in Outlook 2011. If I add a new appointment, it's not visible at all in the Day/Work/Week/Month calendar view. I have to click on the "Tools" tab and then go to "My Day" to view appointments.

It doesn't seem like it should be this confusing, but I'm completely stumped here. Thanks for the help!

I have exactly the same problem as described by Rollin.

"If I add a new appointment, it's not visible at all in the Day/Work/Week/Month calendar view. I have to click on the "Tools" tab and then go to "My Day" to view appointments. "

I too am completely stumped. Is there a setting somewhere I need to change? or some other fix?. PLEASE even if the answer is obvious let me know !!

Left hand side, is your calendar 'Checked' and visible?

Hi MSMacMan,

Thanks for your reply but unfortunately i still can't figure it out. I feel like a real dumbo. And I have used Outlook calendar on a PC for 15 years!

For example I have just accepted a meeting, from my inbox, for Thursday 26 Jan 10.30 - 11.30 AM. It appears in the Tools/My Day view but does not appear in the default Home view. Screenshot attached. I cannot find the "Checked and Visible" setting you refer to. I am sure there is a basic setting I have wrong but I can't figure it out.:Confused:

Any help you can spare much appreciated.

same problem. Help!
 
Help! I Have the same issue, and I don't have any "checked and visible" options either. Benket, did you ever solve this problem? If so, how did you do it?

Hi Scrumrine.

I did not solve this problem. It is really annoying. If you find the solution please can you post it on this thread.

Hope it helps

missing appointments

I found your posts looking for the answer as I had the same problem.

I have a few calendars showing on the left. They've come from various imports, creating new to test and from sync activity I think. When I originally imported my pst from outlook, I had only one calendar and had no issues with it.

A little while ago today, I was trying to add an appointment and it wouldn't retain the time frame I had selected by click/drag. Started playing with it and realized that somehow the first calendar had gotten unchecked or maybe wasn't even showing before I started doing this. Not really conscious of what check boxes were there.

If you highlight any of the calendars, the content for that particular calendar shows up only but if that first calendar is highlighted you see everything.

I thought maybe whatever one I had highlighted was corrupted somehow so I decided to create a new calendar. Then I can see all the check boxes, shown in the attachment and everything I was expecting to see is there.

I don't see any calendars or check boxes in your smart folders area but maybe if you create a new calendar, it will show up like mine did. Maybe a little bug...

Hope that helps.

addl info on appointments missing in calendar
 
Another thing that might be impacting it, maybe related to your email service / syncing. I recently changed to IMAP from POP and these folders are tied to that as well.
