Outlook 2010 – in a shared Calendar an appointment is auto generating a meeting request instead

Outlook 2010 has access to edit and create appointments in a shared calednar.  When the create new appointment command is clicked a meeting request opens and the user has to send a meeting request instead of just being able to add an appointment like we could do in older versions

Why?

And can this be corrected?

Thank you

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There are explicit and implicit ways of doing New things. In message view, the New button defaults to New email message, for example. It sounds as if the New button has been set to default to Create Meeting instead of Appointment.

Use the down-arrow instead of just clicking the New button to create a New Appointment.

    When I am in a shared calendar, the 'New Appointment" is grayed out so that I am forced to create a meeting rather than add something to that calendar. I tried your resolution above, and it it didn't work. Anything else I can do?  Thanks.
