What is it and who needs it?
Microsoft Outlook is a great tool for managing your email, calendar and tasks but it does not understand the way schools, colleges and academies work.
- Outlook wants you to work in weeks and months and set appointments by hours and half hours.
- If you work in a school, college or academy you are more likely to want to work in terms and half-terms and set appointments by the school’s session times.
- Outlook lets you print in a variety of formats but none of them show terms and half-terms or the period structure of the school day.
Academic Calendar is an add-in for Outlook that adds the features you need.
Academic Calendar works with all versions of Outlook from Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2013.
Academic Calendar adds its own ribbon to Outlook. (The screenshot is from Outlook 2010. In earlier versions Academic Calendar adds a toolbar.)
