Hello all, I'm an Outlook 2016 user on PC . Very often I have text in the body of my email which includes dates and times inviting or asking me to attend an event. Is it possible to setup Outlook so that if I click a date or time that it creates an event in my calendar? Similar to how you can do so in "Mail" on the iPhone. Any tips or plugins would be appreciated!!

drag and drop the message from the list in the right hand pane onto the calendar icon in the bottom left corner of the outlook window and it will create a calendar item.

I just checked and you can do the same thing with a block of selected text. Learned something!

That's a neat trick but I was asking specifically about clicking on date/time *text* in the body of the email to create a calendar event from that. Same as when you open an email on mobile and the date/time is underlined so that you can make a quick calendar entry.

No. At least not that I can find. I think Apple patented that ;-)

It's a pretty close second to be able to select the date/time and drag-and-drop.
