Updating outlook calendar with holidays

The MYN Outlook system, as you may know, focuses on the start date of tasks, not the due date.

If you create new recurring tasks (created with a start date) all is fine.

I’ll start with Windows, and then later below show you the Mac.

Choosing Recurrence Options in Windows When you click the Recurrence button in Windows, the following Task Recurrence dialog box opens in Windows: This dialog defaults to a weekly Recurrence pattern (see the upper left corner).

This works especially well in our MYN configured Task Pad or To-Do Bar.

Finding the Recurrence Button You may know you can mark a task as recurring by navigating to the button is found in the middle of the Task Ribbon at the top of the Task dialog box (shown below), and in earlier versions it is found in the middle of the main toolbar at the top of the Task dialog box.

When you click the Recurrence button you are next given some choices.

And this is where it gets interesting because there are a lot of recurrence options, particularly in Windows Outlook, and they can be confusing.

But if you already have recurring tasks in your Outlook system that are based on due dates (or have no dates), they do not work with MYN Outlook configurations.

And if you want to convert them to being start-date tasks, you need to delete and reenter those tasks as start-date based tasks. And don’t just try to edit them by adding the start date—that won’t work either.
