Can't see meetings on Outlook 2010 calendar - missing from monthly view

I had an Outlook 2010 user the other day that said their meetings were not showing up in their calendar - even if they were the person that created the meeting request.  If they made a regular "appointment" it was fine, but a "meeting" would not show up.

We did notice that the meetings showed up if we went to daily or weekly view.  So I figured it was some sort of filter on the monthly view.  Then I noticed the "down arrow" icon underneath the "Month" button.  When you click that down arrow you see three options - Show Low Detail, Show Medium Detail, Show High Detail. In this case, it was set on Show Low Detail for whatever reason.  When I changed it to Show High Detail, all of the meetings became visible on the month view calendar.  See screenshot below...   (If this post helps you out, do me a favor and click on an ad or two to support this site! Thank you!!)

sometimes, check if the user has multiple calendars, the wrong calendar may be checked.

Thanks SOOOO Much. This was driving Me CRAZY! I was getting the reminders and could see them in the task list but could not see them on the calendar. I had to change it to low and back to high before mine showed.

Thanks again for sharing this with everyone!

Thank you, Thank you, thank you!
I was going insane trying every option available at Outlook. This was a quick fix. Keep the good work!

Thanks for that. I had to go through the sequence: low, medium, high detail as it wouldn't let me go directly to high. Couldn't get a sensible answer on the official outlook forum either!

Thank you. You bailed me out of a potentially nasty situation. I can breath now.

Great! My coworker thinks I'm a genius because I fixed her problem!! (Hers wouldn't show mtgs or appts.)

Microsoft considers this a feature: http://www.outlook-tips.net/how-to/calendar-detail-view-in-microsoft-outlook/#comment-21512

-- In Month View, Low detail only shows meetings that are all day events.

-- In Month View, Medium detail shows different thickness of lines to show how “full” a day is of meetings with a line at noon as a reference.

Hi

I was having a related problem and came to this page. User was saying his meeting invites (irrespective of day/work week/month view) was not able to see the subject of the meeting in a particular resource mailbox.

In place of subject, Organizer name would be there and other details would be missing.

I tried to give "Reviewer" access to the "Default" on the calendar of the resource mailbox , so that everyone could see subject/location/Sender details. This was done both by EMC and powershell but still no luck.

Finally found in Exchange properties of that particular mailbox, under the "Resouce information Tab" the following were selected.

1.Delete the subject
2.Add organizer name to subject.

Once i removed the check mark , issue fixed and the subject and organizer name started appearing

This helped, but I still have a question. When I create meetings for my boss, I include her as an invitee, which initiates an email to her, which she then accepts, but the appointment shows up on a different calendar. She has three calendars listed under her 'my calendar' and my invitations / appmts show up under her 'email' calendar. so she has to have both calendars open to see the appmts she creates and the ones I create. how do I get my appmts to show up on her 'outlook' calendar. I hope this makes sense.
