    Cool an appointment

    Hello,

    Are all these verbs correct in this context please?

    "We agree, so I"ll write/set/ book /enter our appointment in my schedule".

    Can "arrangement" ever be a synonym of "appointment"?

    Thank you very much for your help .

    Will

    All the verbs are intelligible, but I consider enter the most natural.

    In my opinion an arrangement is much more elaborate than an appointment. If you and I have an appointment, we may know little about each other. Things may or may not develop at the appointment. But having an arrangement implies that we already know a good deal about each other and we have come to some understanding about what will ensue.
