Who's turning my Outlook events into meetings?

I work at a company that uses Outlook and Exchange. I link my iPhone as well as my iMac at home. Everything was working great until lately. I've noticed that many of my events have been somehow converted into meetings. I'm suspecting my recent upgrade to Mavericks to be the culprit here. This brings to mind two important questions.

Help me better utilize Office for work email, scheduling, etc

I have MS Office Pro Plus 2010 at work, and I haven't used Office before. After using Gmail exclusively for a number of years, and never any scheduling tools beyond what came on my Droid from Verizon, I'm looking for ways to better utilize the email, organizational and time management options I have. I recently learned about flags and conversation view from a co-worker, but I feel like there are more features I should be using. [more inside]

How do I set up a randomly reoccurring event in my calendar?

I would like to set up a randomly reoccurring weekly event in my calendar -- either Outlook or Google -- such that it repeats every work week (M-F) between the hours of 9-5, but randomly. In other words, I want it to be at 1 pm on Monday one week, then 10 am on Friday of the following week, etc. Is there a quick and easy way to do this or must I set up a reoccurring event and then go through each week moving the appointment to what feels like a random time?

Syncing calendars - .ics conversion or another way?

How do I convert ics files? Since my work computer was upgraded to Office 2010 64-bit, I've been unable to sync my Outlook schedule with my Samsung phone (which uses Samsung New PC Studio). It will still sync with my Google calendar though. Both Outlook and Google only seem to export .ics files. NPS seems to import .nsf, .dif, .mdb and .vcs. I found a free .ics to .vcs converter online but it seems to convert a single appointment from what I've verified is a complete export of my calendar. How can I convert the files or otherwise get the phone calendar synced?

YOU'RE LATE FOR A MEETING, ASSHAT!

I need some sort of really "loud" notification when I have a meeting coming up at work. ("Load" is in quotes, because, ideally, it wouldn't be a sound -- it would be some sort of big, colorful visual display.) I (am forced to) use Outlook 2011. Mac OS X, Snow Leopard. [more inside]

How to fix my iTunes to iPod Touch calendar sync?

iTunes broke my calendar. I can no longer sync Outlook to my iPod Touch because "sync server failed to sync." I can't find an answer to this on iTunes help although I do see that others have had this problem. Any suggestions? I've always done this over a USB cable. Nothing has changed except the calendar won't sync anymore. My iTunes software is up to date. I think Notes and Contacts are syncing -- though I just realized I haven't really tested that. I don't sync music in this operation, I do that from a different machine with different settings.

Sharing calendars through Outlook and iCal without an Exchange server

I need to share a calendar between four people. Trouble is, two of them are on Macs (using iCal) and two of them are using Outlook on PCs. I know there are systems like OfficeCalendar that do away with needing an Exchange server, and GroupCal that allows a Mac to connect to an Exchange server. But is there a way to get all these platforms working in tandem? Bonus points if there is a web-based version of the calendar too.
