Can I automatically schedule Outlook 2010 to send a calendar on work days?

I have read a few of your articles about scheduling Outlook emails. I have a question about taking this a step further. In our office, we have Outlook 2010.

Issue – some of the execs have now asked that the subordinates email them a daily plan. Every morning we email our calendars with “limited details” to our bosses. Many of us forget when we come straight into full voicemail boxes and back-to-back meetings. So I have been looking for a way to use a Rule or some other mechanism to do this each weekday automatically.

I hope you get the idea by now, but… Each morning at a specified time, Outlook will email my daily calendar with limited details to a specified list.

Of course, we all share calendars with each other. Some of the bosses will take the 2 clicks to check our calendars, but others want it sent as described above.

Any ideas?

I don't know of any easy way to do this.

There are some add-ins you can buy. The downside is they cost $$. Double check that they work with 64-bit if you are using that.

The hard way
With some Visual Basic knowledge it should be possible to write a script that does this. These three pages can get you started on the code required for it.

Perhaps someone else might have a better answer.

      Question from Reader - Email Form
       
       
      Hi Tom,
       
      Ouch. I know how it feels losing a days worth of work. The worst part is when you have to recreate what you've already done.
       
      To answer your question, when you found the Entry "OutlookSecureTempFolder" what was the path in the DATA column? I assume you reviewed this post here to find it. It looks like you found the registry key entry so your more than 1/2 way there. Find that key again and you should have the path to your OLK folder and your Excel should be sitting there.
       
      Now the path might be a bit confusing because with Outlook 2007, there actually is "NOT" an OLK folder. For instance, on my XP/Outlook 2007 install, my OLK folder or "Temp Outlook Folder" / "OutlookSecureTempFolder" is:
       
      c:\Documents and Settings\mrgroove\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook\4V32TZLP  
      So if you look on your box you will find what your looking for in the "Content.Outlook" folder. Take a look there and your golden.
       
      More reading can be found here also on the Outlook OLK folder location:

      Thnx!

      I love the new Focused Inbox feature from Microsoft.
      https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Focused-Inbox-for-Outlook-f445ad7f-02f4-4294-a82e-71d8964e3978?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US
      However, I'm trying to find the Keyboard Shortcut Key so I can jump through my inbox a bit faster vs. Right-Click > V (Move to Other).
      If anyone out there finds it, let me know.

      I have Office 365 Home. I can't send email using the Outlook app because it tells me I have no certificate? My computer has Windows 10 Pro. Outlook is configured using Exchange. I have tried reconfiguring it but it will not let me change the settings. Do I need to purchase a certificate or how do I change the settings? I have always been able to send email till I installed Office 365 Home.
      Thanks! Any help will be appreciated.

      Hi all,
       
      I updated my outlook to 2016 recently but now i can't open old emails in unicode format. The email in unicode 2016 i can open them but the old ones ( 2013 ) i can't. I try browse and found the outlook 2016 but no luck.
       
      Can someone tell me how can i open the emails in unicode format ( 2013 outlook version ) ?
       
      Regards,

      A feature I use all the time in Microsoft Outlook 2013 (Office 2013) is the ability to open a calendar invite during a meeting and click - Meeting Notes. See screenshot from Outlook 2013.
       
      [attachment=0]outlook-2016.jpg[/attachment]
       
      After installing Office 2016, when I open up outlook I no longer have that option in the calendar. It's just missing.
       
      Is anyone else having this issue or is it just me?
       
      Hopefully this is just an issue with the Preview and it will get fixed later during full release.
