Outlook: find out large appointments with sorting by size

As you see, we can easily get email messages' size and find out big messages quickly in Microsoft Outlook. However, there is no Size column in the Calendar view, and it seems hard to find out large appointments by size. Actually we can customize the calendar view, and sort all appointments by size, and then find out the large appointments with ease.
