Can Excel trigger actions on a task in Outlook?
Posted on 2011-03-07
I have an Excel spreadsheet in which the user creates goals, projects and tasks for the purpose of staying organized.
I have a friend who is using it and he has actually used Outlook for task management. He's asked me if the spreadsheet he's now using could be integrated with Outlook so that he could manage tasks from either application.
I don't know the details of exactly what he's hoping for, but I thought I'd lob the general question out for feedback.
What else do you need to know to answer the question? Are there limitations that might be deal breakers for usability?
FYI, the spreadsheet does include a significant amount of VBA, conditional formatting, Data validation and such.
