A couple of important notes:

  • If this is a virtual meeting make sure to specify which platform will be used and how to access the meeting.
  • If this is a personal appointment or vacation, or furlough make sure to invite yourself and change Show As to Out of Office so you others won’t schedule you during that time. In addition, send a seperate email your supervisor letting them know when you’ll be out of the office.
  • Make sure to include in the description who the invite is from, what the purpose of the event is, and an agenda.
  • If this is a production make sure to specify the course, faculty, content, and any other helpful relevant information. If this is a production away from UWEX make sure to change Show As to Out of Office so you others won’t schedule you during that time.
  • You can click Scheduling to view your invitee’s availaiblity.
  • Make sure to use the appliciable emoji in the Subject name. The emoji list is below.

🗓️ Personal Calendar

Your personal first.last@uwex Outlook calendar should be used for all things outside of productions (video, audio, photo, etc), training sessions, personal vacation or appointments, and furlough. The process to schedule is the same and many of the use guidelines apply.

Your personal calendar is Calendar in Outlook.

A couple of notes specifically for personal calendars:

  • You do not need to use emojis.
  • Your personal calendar should have all of your personal appointments or vacations, or fulough days. They should make it to your personal calendar by inviting yourself when you add it to the oel-mediaproduction shared calendar.
  • Always double check From: to make sure you are sending the invite from the correct calendar account. Your personal calendar will be first.last@uwex.
  • Always make sure you calendar is up to date and accurately reflects your availability. This avoids accidentally being double booked and removes the need to inquire about your availability for a particulare date/time.
