In Month and Timeline view, appointments always start out as all-day events.


    • If the StartInsertingInAdvancedForm property is False (the default), the in-line editor appears: Inline Insert
    • If the StartInsertingInAdvancedForm property is True, the advanced insert form appears instead: Edit Form Insert
  2. Enter the subject of the appointment in the in-line editor or insert form that appears.

  3. If you are done, click “Save” button to insert the appointment.

  4. If you want to cancel the appointment creation, click the “Cancel” button.
