Outlook 2010 Write Calendar entry to Journal
Posted on 2011-09-17
I've just upgraded from Office 2000 to 2010 and can't find a feature that I depend on for my invoicing.
My business is very simple: I bill all of my time spent at clients' sites and I record my appointments and activities in the Outlook calendar. For each billable entry I used to click on the 2000 "Record in Journal" icon (which I found in the customize menu) to create a journal entry. I then add a description of work carried out, etc. and at the end of the month I copy the journal lines into a spread sheet to produce the invoice.
This "Record in Journal" feature seems to have disappeared and I'm stuck unless I can find it or come up with another solution.
If there's no way to do this, I'd like to know if there's a better method using the diary features of Outlook and integrating them into a billing system. I don't use a fully-fledged accounting package, just Excel, for reasons I won't go into just yet.
