Hello All -

I have a C# application that checks a sharepoint list and it sends out reminders to certain people 15 days before a due date.
However, I'm looking to expand it.
After the E-mail reminder gets sent out, I would like to create an outlook appointment/reminder entry on those peoples calendar.

Thanks.

No i'm not
In the E-mail notifcation that i send out just has a link in it to there sharepoint list item.

I'm just looking for a way to automatically add an appointment/reminder entry to that persons calendar.

I think this is not possibe, there should be security barriers to avoid this. But you can send the appointment attached in email so user the can add it with a double click.
