One of the really important aspects of lawyering is to have the right information at the right time for your clients. Sometimes this means watching a resource that has a regular publication schedule like the Canada Gazette Part II (the source of new federal regulations and proclamations). Canada Gazette Part II is published every second Wednesday. My Recurrence dialogue box for a “Check Gazette Part II” Outlook appointment looks like this:
A one minute appointment every two weeks scheduled to not block a time when others may wish to schedule meetings with me. The body of the appointment has a link to the latest issue of Canada Gazette Part II. Happiness is not missing out on potentially important information.
An added benefit is the ability to invite a colleague to your appointment to make it a “meeting” – works great for short term assignments for vacation coverage!
