Are you using JAWS?  If so what version.  I'm using v13, and I've found that the only way I can access the scheduling assistant is to switch into JAWS cursor mode and attempt to scrabble around till I land on the relevant bit of the screen.  I haven't found a consistent way of doing this, and I'm hoping it will be better in V14.00

Subject: [BCAB] Outlook 2010 appointments.

Hi All.
I've recently been upgraded to office 2010. I really dislike it, but that's probably because I'd gotten so used to 2003.
Most things I've been able to work out however scheduling appointments in outlook 2010 seems really hard work.

I've worked out how to add attendees and can add all possible rooms. In outlook 2003 I could select to automatically find a time and date where all required people and 1 resource was available with the upshot that outlook looked at peoples calendar and was able to find a time when everyone was available and could find a meeting room which was free. Is there a similar function in outlook 2010? Can anyone give any hints about a good way to schedule meetings?

All our rooms are managed as resources and their calendars can be seen and booked up by any user on the system.
This really shouldn't be so hard! <grins!>

Thanks for any ideas.
