Why Scroll when you can jump directly to a Date in Outlook Calendar

By standss Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

Here is a quick shortcut that lets you jump directly to a particular date in outlook calendar rather than scrolling through the week or month view to get to that date.

This is one of my favorite’s shortcuts as it saves a lot of time when getting to a future date to schedule future appointments/meeting.

This shortcuts works in Outlook 2013 and earlier versions as well.

Here’s the steps:

  • Go to the Outlook Calendar
  • Press CTRL+G on the keyboard. This should display the Go To Date pop-up as shown below:

Go to Date

  • You can select the date you wish to jump to using the drop now. What makes it even better is that it recognizes normal English words as well for example “Tomorrow”, “Two days later”, “second Monday of August” etc…
  • You can choose the view in which the date should show from the Show in: drop down
  • Click OK or Press Enter

The calendar will now display the date that you entered.

Do you know of other shortcuts in Outlook to get things done faster?

  1. Ctrl+2 to move to the calendar in the first place or simply Ctrl+2 and keeping Ctrl pressed all the while press g.
