VBA code that links Outlook tasks to journal

By andrew.mitcham ·
Background: I am trying to semi-automate the following manual processes:

1) Click/drag email into Tasks to create a task. Assign it a category.
2) Click/drag above tasks by category into a journal item.

I have successfully modified some vba code that will copy an individual email to an Outlook task (I have modified it to include some custom information in the task as well). With exception of being able to select multiple emails to create multiple tasks, I'm ok here for now.

The step I am stuck on is creating a journal item with links to tasks of same category.

EX: If I have 5 tasks with "ToDo" as the category, I can select them all and drag them to Outlook's 'Journal', and a new journal will be created with active links to (not just a copy of) all 5 tasks.

Linking to the task is important. This allows me to close each task while still in the Journal, which I use for tracking my overall time.
