Outlook Appointments via a shortcut

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!
