Outlook for Mac 2011: How to Add Holidays to Your Calendar

Posted November 2, 2010 by Rob Rogers in Apple Mac

Outlook allows the user to add national holidays from multiple countries into the calendar. This is helpful for knowing when you (or your contacts) don’t have to show up for work or class.

1. Open Outlook.

2. Go to the Menu at the top of the screen, click File and select Import.

3. When the Import window appears, select the Holidays radio button, then click the right arrow at the bottom of the window.

4. Select the country (or countries) whose holidays you want displayed on your Outlook calendar from the list, then click the right arrow at the bottom of the window.

5. Once the import has completed, click the Finish button.

The holidays you selected have now been added to your Outlook calendar.

    OK, but how do I stop Outlook from automatically adding holidays to my Outlook calendars? I have 4x duplicate holidays for the next decade? I know how to delete those…but how to shut that off and STOP them from keep coming back? Help?!? Thank you.
