Easily calculate dates for tasks and calendar entries in Outlook

Pod Pointer

When using either the tasks or calendar features of Microsoft Outlook, you can use this tip to enter dates even faster:

Let’s say you’ve just started a project today and want to create a task reminding you to, for example, order parts in 5 days.  Create a new task in Outlook, and in the Due Date field, enter 5 days.

You’re not limited to using days as a calculation unit.  You can also enter things like 2 weeks or 1 month.  This doesn’t take into account holidays, weekends, etc. but it’s great for at least ensuring that you get a heads-up before reaching a deadline.

Try it yourself!
