So here's the situation. I create appointments for other people to go on. I create the appointment in a shared calendar and invite them to the appointment. I need outlook to set a task automatically (in their tasks) for 2 days after the appointment is scheduled to remind them to follow up. Is there a way to do this? I was thinking maybe a macro but I have little to no experience with VBA. Any help or ideas is greatly appreciated! I'm using Outlook 07 btw on an exchange server.

Thanks!
 
Macro can do it - I have a macro that creates a message when an appointment is added to a calendar, but the macro runs on the calendar owners machine. If you have write permission on their tasks, you could use a macro on your machine to create the task, but the macro needs tweaked to work with different calendars.

This macro would be tweaked to create a task instead, but it needs to run on everyone's machine:

Send an email when you add an appointment to your calendar - Slipstick Systems

it could also be changed to determine the active folder and use the correct tasks folder but I don't have the code handy to do that.
