Is It Possible to Add Option When Sending Email In Outlook To Automatically Trigger A Reminder?
Posted on 2013-05-22
I am having trouble finding any information on this because I am unsure of how to word what I am looking for in a clear, concise manner and google isn't really helping.
When I compose an email in outlook, I would like to click a checkbox (or somehow otherwise select the option) to automatically have a reminder pop up if I don't receive a reply to that email within 3 days. A box should pop up and say "You have not received a reply to this email in 3 days. Please follow up with insured."
An alternate way of accomplishing this would be if (again) I could select the option when composing the email and have it be moved from the sent folder to an "ATTENTION" folder if I do not receive a reply to that email within 3 days.
Something that should make it a bit easier is that there will only be one recipient for each email, so I won't have to deal with tracking replies from multiple recipients.
Is this possible? I feel like there has to be a way with VBA, and I feel like I could figure out some of it - but I don't really know where to start with 1. tracking a reply to an email and 2. adding a dropdown/checkbox option to apply the rule to an email when I compose a new email.
If this was VBA code, it would be relatively easy to integrate because I am already using a userform interface to pick/complete outlook templates to send out.
