Go To Date dialog box

If you need to find a date quickly on your Outlook calendar, there's no need to scroll through the weeks and months to find the date you want. Instead, use the Ctrl + G keystroke combination and then type in the date you want. You don't even need to type in the year if the date you're looking resides in the current year. For instance, you can type in: 3/29.

Outlook also understands natural language so you can type in something like "60 days from now" or "6 weeks from now".
