Having a lot of different customers and a lot of different areas to work with makes it trivial to have your mail folders in order. Everytime I get a new Project / Customer I want to add a certain Folder Structure in my "Customer" / "Project" sub directory.
It might look like this:
Customer_name/ Bugs Documents Important Support/ Done
And as it is today, I have to manually add these manually, which is harsh when you have a lot of it going on and each sub directory under the customer_name directory needs to have "display all items" since it's important to me to see all Items in Bugs / Support / Important.
Makes my life easier.
So, Is it possible to Automize the process somehow? Macro? Folder Templates?
What are my options?
I have something like this set up at the moment:
Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application") Set objNameSpace = objOutlook.GetNameSpace("MAPI") Set objFolder = objNameSpace.PickFolder If objFolder Is Nothing Then WScript.Quit End If Set objFolders = objFolder.Folders customer = InputBox("Enter Customer Name:") Set objCustomerFolders = objFolders.Add(customer).Folders objCustomerFolders.Add("Bugs") objCustomerFolders.Add("Documents") objCustomerFolders.Add("Important") Set objSupportFolders = objCustomerFolders.Add("Support").Folders objSupportFolders.Add("Done")
But this doesn't set the Properties on each folder.
So a follow up question would be, do I have to solve this with programming?
