Viewing a record of past Calendar appointments

Issue: 

Unless you delete them, the calendar or appointment book program on your PC or Mac keeps a record of your past appointments. This can come in handy for checking expense reports or following up on meetings. The record of past appointments on your desktop computer will suffice for most purposes, but if you need to have this record with you wherever you go, you can use iTunes to sync your past as well as current and future appointments with your iPhone or iPod touch. Follow these steps:


Connect your device to your computer and open iTunes.


  1. Click on "your device" in the left-hand column.

  2. Select the Info tab.

  3. Scroll down to Calendars and check the box labeled “Sync calendars with.”

  4. Select the Personal Information Manager program you want to sync with.


If you want your entire calendar synced with your device, make sure the box labeled “Do not sync events older than…” IS NOT CHECKED!


If you want a portion of your calendar synced (say, the last year), check this box and enter 365 days.
