Weekly recurring appointments based on 6 month rotation

Apologies if this has been addressed elsewhere but a forum search didn't provide assistance.

I work for a national company in Australia but am based in Brisbane where Daylight Savings (Summer Time) is not followed.

I would like to create a set of appointments recurring every Monday based on a 6 month cycle without using specific dates to cater for the other states moving forward an hour during summer.

This is what I'm after:

1st Monday October to last Monday March

Appointment 09:15 to 10:00

1st Monday April to last Monday September

Appointment 10:15 to 11:00

Every 6 months I have to manually create these appointments - and yes I know, it's not difficult. It just bugs me every time that I haven't figured out how to do it.

So, I'm asking the question to get an answer either way - is it possible?

Many thanks
if the time zone is set correctly, it should work correctly. (you need to use a time zone that does not use DST, don't choose one that supports DST and uncheck the DST option)

Outlook 2007 and 2010 lets you choose the time zone when you create the appt - so if the appt needs to follow a different time zone, click the Time zone button and select a different time zone. (ie, its an online meeting based on another time zone)
Thanks for your reply Diane - didn't think to look at the time zones option :eek:

That is exactly what I needed
