Did You Know? Create a Meeting from an Email!

Did you know that you can create a meeting from an email? There are 3 ways to do it, and each is simple.

When you create a meeting from an email, several things happen automatically:

  • The subject of the email populates the subject of the meeting.
  • The recipients in the To and Cc fields of the email populate the attendees for the meeting.
  • The content of the email populates the notes of the meeting.
  • Any attachments to the email are added to the meeting invitation.

The first option is to right-click the email and select “Create Appointment.”
