Outlook Calendar templates/forms

I have someone asking me about Outlook calendars and I really don't know that much about Outlook. But if someone can point me in the right direction, I bet I can figure it out.

The person uses Outlook Calendar to schedule appointments. It works OK, but they want to add a form or template so that they not only have the appointment, but can collect the same data for each appointment (e.g. the name, phone number, address, etc., etc.), and also be able to print the appointment, replacing some expensive triplicate forms they are buying now.

Since I will be the one having to set it up, let me say that I can figure a lot of stuff out, but I'm not much of a programmer. I would prefer solutions that don't start out by needing to code Visual Basic.

I sure would appreciate any and all responses, though.


Thanks,

Usurper_ii

Hi usurper_ii,

You can customize Outlook's appointment form and add the fields you need, no coding required.  From the information you gave in your post the only code you'd need would be to handle the printing.  Outlook's built-in printing is pretty much fixed.  Here's a link to a page that does into more detail about building custom forms: http://www.outlookcode.com/d/forms.htm

Cheers!

Since nobody else posted any responses, I went ahead and awarded the points to you. The link you gave me was one of the first ones I found when doing a google,  before asking on here. It is OK, but it is really pushing a book and leans heavy towards visual basic, which is what I was really trying to avoid. But thanks for taking the time to try and help out!

You can't avoid VBA if you want to work with Outlook forms.
