Making entries stand out

Making entries stand out

When I arrive at the office each day I usually take a look at my list of appointments for that day. But often there are so many appointments, and I'm in such a rush to get started on the day's projects, that the list of appointments appears to be just one big blur of frightening demands. For these reasons, I've developed the following tricks to make the more important appointments stand out from the less important ones (see Screen 5):

Screen 5.

1. Sometimes I create both an appointment and an event for the same event; such as a Board of Directors meeting. Because the meeting appears twice on the day's appointment list, I'm more likely to see it and remain aware of its imminence during the day.

2. To make an appointment (such as taking that significant other person somewhere) stand out, I can add spaces at the beginning of an appointment's description field.

3. I also can add special characters to the description field. For instance, by pressing (Fn)+(&) a number of times, a string consisting of multiple occurrences of a character that looks like an arrow can be inserted at the beginning of the description field for an important appointment, such as a doctors visit.

To find out about all the different special characters that can be inserted into a field, look up Special Characters in the index of you Users Guide, or refer to page 31 of the March/April 1998 issue of The HP Palmtop Paper.
