  • Journal is at the bottom from the pull-down menu. Or just use the convenient keyboard shortcut Control-8 to open Journal.

And then it pops up the Journal Options, where you can set up or modify the setting of your Journal, like selecting the activities you want tracked, including appointments, tasks, and your other Office applications.
