    This does not work with skype meetings. The skype part follows and will not work in the new meeting.

    That worked. Also, right-click and drag to desired date/time and then release will show a context menu with options to move, copy or cancel.

    Awesome. Thanks.
    Is there a way to do this without drag and drop? A menu option?

    This moves the appointment, deleting the original -- not good for anyone wanting to keep the original for reference purposes.
