Meeting Requests integrated with MS Project

Written by 

Meeting Requests in Outlook Integration

The next big chapter of Outlook Integration comes with the addition of being able to work with Outlook Meeting Requests.

Send any of your tasks as a meeting request, receive the resources response in Outlook, and resend possible meeting request changes right from your Microsoft Project file.

Outlook Dialogs

We've redesigned the add-in, so for single task selections, you're now presented with Outlook's own Task/Appointment creation dialogs. We just help you, by pre-populating the right fields from your MS Project task information.

For multiple task selections the application responds the same way as it did before: you're offered to add a couple of common properties to your Outlook Task/Appointment via a couple of simple Outlook Integration dialogs.

 

Outlook Meeting Request Dialog

 

Changelog:

  • Added compatibility with Outlook Meeting Requests (for sending and updating)
  • Handling single task selections differently (opening them in Outlook directly, with pre-populated fields)
  • Removed common note section from Save Multiple Outlook Appointments dialog. Notes will be picked up from the MS Project tasks themselves
  • Added graphical indicators to Text29, which now shows a blue icon for tasks that were sent out as Outlook Tasks, and a light-blue icon for tasks that were sent/saved to an Outlook calendar.
  • Inserting the Outlook Integration specific custom fields now happens while sending / saving a task
  • Changed logic of Show Today to consider tasks that don't have a resource assigned
  • Added possibility to change credentials, or authenticate a full license prior to the trial licenses expiry. There's a new Change Credentials button in the left-most Power2Plan dropdown button in the OUTLOOK ribbon tab.
