How does my calendar appear to others when I filter the view? Do they still see everything that was hidden by my filter, or do they only see what I have visible? Normally, they can see when I have appointments and the titles of the appointments. If I hide it through a filtered view, is it hidden from them, too?

Nice idea. It certainly makes the full view of my calendar cleaner. But it doesn't get rid of the way that a day's date shows up in bold font in the left-hand area of the screen. That view still makes it look like every day has an appointment, because every day is still bold. How can that be suppressed too please?

Hi Daniel, I wanted to hide a specific recurring appointment. The example given above didn't work for me as it showed ONLY the recurring appointment I actually wanted to hide. What I did was, follow the steps to the Advanced tab (step 4), then used the following: Field: Subject (from All Appointment fields) Condition: doesn't contain Value: 'Daily Reminder' (or whatever the recurring appointment is named in your calendar) Clicked Add to List Note: I am assuming you can create multiple conditions for all the recurring appointments you wish to hide OR I would suggest you put a code in the subject for each appointment e.g. RA1 (or something) and use that in the 'Value' field so it will automatically hide all recurring appointments. Once I had done that, the recurring appointments were no longer visible from my calendar AND only the days that I had actual appointments would be bold in the calendar view on the left. I hope this helps.
