    Outlook Appointments via a shortcut

    Locked

    by steve8587 ·

    I would like to use a keyboard shortcut such as ctrl-d and ctrl-t that would create an Appointment where the Subject, and Start/End Times are already completed. I tend to input 20 to 80 appointments at once. My appointments are consistent and either 8:00am to 5:00pm or 5:00pm to 9:00pm and I have so many that do NOT recur (recurrence will not work) I would like a shortcut to do the repetitive part for me.

    The Macro does not allow recording as it does in Excel and Word. It requires the VB to be input. It looks like the correct answer will include the VB to perform this action.

    Thanks,
    Steve

      I know it’s old, but I’ve used this to set up some very complex actions before (It will even integrate with your voice recognition software, if you fiddle with it.). This might be a start.

      This is an easy way for the non-programmer
      From Outlook Select
      Tools\Forms\Design A Form
      Choose Appointment
      Click on OPEN
      Select P.2 Tab
      Use Field Chooser to Drag Start Field onto Page
      Use Field Chooser to Drag End Field onto Page
      Right Click on the Field Value and select Properties
      Click Value Tab
      Check Set Initial Value Box
      Enter Time Value
      Close windows and Save Form

      Note Using Save As, form can be saved as an .oft file that can be placed in a regular folder or on your windowsdesktop

      You can create as many forms as you like. One for each type of appointment.

      Hope this helps!
