Living in Mauritius for the next four months, but working US hours, which means I go to work at 5pm and end at 2am. My Outlook calendar won't let me show a range from 5pm to 2am...all my appointments are either at the very top or the very bottom, and I can't see the top while looking at the bottom, and vice versa. I need to either 1) set it to allow a view from 5pm to 2am, or 2) hide the hours from 3am to 4pm so that I can see all my work hours on one screen.

I have a possible solution. I created an appointment starting at the start of my shift. I then opened the Recurrence options window. I entered the start time, skipped the end time, and entered my shift's duration (Start= 6:00 PM; End= 6:30 PM; Duration: 8 hours). After entered the duration, the End changed to 2:00 AM (this trick will not work if you manually enter an end time after midnight). My Reoccurence pattern is set to Weekly, Recur 1 week on: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. My Range of recurrence is set to the first day of my tour, and the End by as the end date of my tour. When I clicked the OK button I got a pop-up asking me if it was ok for it to go past midnight; I responed YES. My appointments all start at 6:00 PM and end at 2:00 AM the next date. I then finished it up by clicking back on the appointment and changing the Show as to Free and Reminder to none. I can still create Busy appointments over-top of this Free appointment. For my off days, I just delete those single occurences. We have an internal company application that reads these appointments and changes its status to match this appointment's status of Free.
