Do you drag messages, tasks, or contacts to a specific date on the navigation calendar to create an appointment for that date? Share you comments below. Background: Outlook 2013 replaces the To-Do Bar with what Microsoft calls a Peek. You can't drag items to it to create new appointments. The calendar peek shows only appointments for the selected day, not the next xx number of appointments. More information on Peeks is available at Using the Calendar Peek in Outlook 2013 - Slipstick Systems Video example: <!-- copy and paste.

The time defaults to 8 AM (or the start of your workday.) You can also drag items to the Calendar icon at the bottom of the navigation pane. (The button that opens the calendar module.) when you drag to the calendar button (or calendar folder in other versions), the appointment date is "today".
