5.  For each name entered, click Required, Optional, or Resources. (The Required and Optional attendees appear in the To box on the Appointment tab, and Resources appear in the Location box. To get details on a conference room, click it in the Resources list, and then click Properties.) Click OK.

6.  Click a time when all invitees are available. You can use AutoPick Next to find the next available free time for all invitees.

7.  Click Make Meeting.
