How to Convert Email into Outlook Appointment Using G-Lock Email Processor
You may receive email messages containing data you want to use to generate new appointments in Outlook. For example, someone sent you an email about an event but it's not an Outlook invitation. You can re-enter the information into Outlook manually…or you can easily convert that email into an appointment in your Outlook calendar using our G-Lock Email Processor.
G-Lock Email Processor has the Distributable version of Outlook Redemption. Redemption supports Outlook 98, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007 and 2010.
In addition to converting an email into an appointment in Outlook calendar, using Redemption in G-Lock Email Processor you can create contact item in Outlook, turn email into task in Outlook, create note item in Outlook, and perform other actions with incoming emails.
Below is an example of the code that you can use in G-Lock Email Processor to turn email into an Outlook appointment:
function main() set Session = CreateObject("GLSMAPI.GLS_RDOSession") Session.Logon set Appt = Session.GetDefaultFolder(9).items.add 'olFolderCalendar Appt.SendAsICal = false 'send as RTF rather than iCal Appt.Subject = Fields.FieldValue("Subject") Appt.Body = "Test Appt Body" Appt.Start = #20/1/2012 9:30# set Recip= Appt.Recipients.Add(Fields.FieldValue("Email")) Recip.Type =olTo 'required attendee Appt.Recipients.ResolveAll Appt.Save Session.logoff end function
We have setup the rule called "Working with Outlook" and included it into the default G-Lock Email Processor installation. Simply download G-Lock Email Processor, install it and you will find the codes to create a contact item, convert email into task or note and turn email into appointment in Outlook calendar inside that rule.
