Outlook Appointment Requests

Q: Outlook Appointment Requests

I need some help here....
I have a user who, when she opens Outlook 2000, she is set up to view her mailbox, as well as our President's. Everything is fine, except that when ANYONE sends an Appointment Request to the President, it goes directly to the assistants Inbox and the President never sees it at all. If the assistant accepts the requsts, it will THEN show up on the Presidents calendar, but never in his Inbox. I believe I've checked all the Rules on both sides, and haven't found anything there....Any ideas? Please?
And yes, we are running Exchange (5.5).

Preferred Solution: Outlook Appointment Requests

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Outlook Appointment Requests


Check the delegates and permissions for both and the profile for the President. The admin has permission to view and accept the President's meeting requests. The President has his profile set so he doesn't even see the request just the meeting acceptance in his calendar. Hope this helps.

Hi there,

I use MS Office Live Small Business for my website and email. I use Outlook to manage my email on my computer, connecting to Office Live with Outlook Connector. Till now, I have not used the online Office Live calendar, I've simply used the default Outlook calendar on my computer. Today, though, I received a meeting request from a client. I "accepted" the meeting and checked in my calendar to make sure it had recorded it, but could not see it. I eventually found it in my online Office Live calendar.

So now I have two active calendars, which I don't want. Can I tell Office Live to record appointments to my Outlook default calendar? Or would I be better off switching to the online Office Live calendar? If I do the latter, is there a quick and easy (!) way to transfer all my appointments from my default Outlook calendar to the online version?

(One reason for wanting to use only one calendar is that my HTC smartphone will only sync to one calendar, so it doesn't pick up any appointments on any other calendar.)

Sorry about the long-winded question. Help and advice will be gratefully received.

A:Appointment requests from Office Live into default Outlook calendar?

When i accept email meeting invitations in my computer outlook, they get put into a secondary calendar - not the live calendar. So when i'm on my windows 7 phone or my ipad those appointments don't show up (since it only shows the live calendar) - help! What to do?

No-one has responded to this same question 267 days ago. Does that mean there is no solution or does it mean that the answer is so easy and glaring me in the face?

Please respond someone. Many thanks.

Hi Guys,

is it possible for the calender in Outlook to automatically search for the next available appointment time rather than have to search manulally. I am looking at using the calender to show me when a room is booked.

Many thanks


A:Next available appointment - outlook

Not really. You could just try to book the room with the time you want and if it is set up to automatically reject conflicts it will deny the request. There is a "Schedule" feature in the newer versions of Outlook that let you at a glance look at anyones or a collective group of schedules for anyone or thing in an Exchange setting.

I’m a IT tech and we have a problem here with some users.

In outlook, when creating a appointment and look at the print preview (or when we print), the appointments don’t look the same.

In case A (the case I want to happen on every computer), we see the whole appointment, “multi-line view”.

In case B (the problem), we just see a part of the line (the line’s cut), it’s single-line.


Case A (the OK situation):
Case B (the problem):
I uninstalled Office + reinstalled it and the problem occurs again. On the same Exchange account, on two different computer, I can get the Case A on one computer and the Case B on the second. So I guess it’s not Exchange related.

We use Windows XP Pro SP2 and Office 2003 SP3.

So my guess it’s NT account related or an option in Outlook that I overlooked the 10 times I checked.

Can someone help me here?

Thanks a lot and sorry for my English! 

The boss wants to track his subordinates work on projects in his outlook calendar from a Excel Spreadsheet. I was looking/hoping that there was something "automated" that I could do that will remind him when a project is coming due and then another one on the due date. Was looking for an outlook new appointment (all day event) to be placed on his calendar to serve as that reminder.

I started to do this one by one but he now wants me to see if this could be automated.

One of my clients works in an Exchange environment. When she forwards a Calendar entry to another employee, the employee receives a vcalendar attachment that opens as a Calendar entry on their copy of Outlook.

When she sends the same email to me via POP3 email, the attachment is simply a forwarded email message, with the vcalendar text as the email body.

When I forward her a calendar entry, she receives it properly.

Is this an Outlook configuration issue, or an issue of Exchange vs POP3 message processing?

I am an extremely basic user who has managed to get a basic macro together through multiple web searches and am now stuck...

I have dates entered into the following columns in excel: 14,15,16,26,27,28

I have managed to make the macro create appointments for 14,15,16 but not the rest. Also, every time i run the macro it creates a new appointment regardless if one already exists. I saw on this forum about adding a word to another column which the macro searches for and if found doesnt create a new appointment - or something to that extent. Here is what i have:

' Create the Outlook session
Set myOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")

' Start at row 7
r = 7

Do Until Trim(Cells(r, 1).Value) = ""
For Each cell In Range(Cells(r, 14), Cells(r, 16))
If cell.Value <> "" Or 0 Then

' Create the AppointmentItem
Set myApt = myOutlook.createitem(1)

' Set the appointment properties
myApt.Subject = Cells(r, 1).Value & " " & "Update Due"
myApt.Start = cell.Value
myApt.categories = "Yellow Category"
myApt.ReminderSet = True
myApt.Body = "blah blah blah"
End If
Next cell
r = r + 1
End Sub

Please can someone assist by:
1. making it apply for all the columns originally mentioned
2. making it search if an appointment for that item (ie that row) exists - if not, create appt, if so, do not create appt and insert "Yes" in column 29

I just loaded 2007 on my laptop and then discovered i also had this issue in 2003. We arent sure if it is a windows profile issue or an exchange profile issue BUT...
i went to a date a month out. I right clicked and chose a new appt. The window popped up and the date was todays date, no matter when i select a date, it defaults to today's date. no one else has this issue.
it gets weirder. I just click on the calendar day and start to type in a new appt. it not only doesnt allow me to extend the time beyond 30 minutes, a reminder window pops up telling me that i have the appt in 5 minutes...no matter which date i select. and the appts dont show up. HOWEVER, if i open OWA, everything is perfect, the date is correct and all of the "test" appts i created in the full version of outlook show up. it also seems to work if i am checking another person's calendar.
I am stumped. i have tried it on computers i have never logged into and it does the same thing so it isnt a little nugget saved somewhere, it has to be a profile issue but which profile and has anyone heard of this before?

I have a problem with appointments on Outlook 2003: User A sends me an appointment. I accept and the appointment appears on my calendar and the appointment message is automatically deleted from my Inbox. Fine so far. User A sends me the same appointment a few days later. The message says that I have a conflict on my schedule. If I accept the appointment, two (2) appointments reading the same appear in my calendar. If I delete the message from my Inbox, the original appointment disappears from my calendar. What am I doing wrong? The Outlook Help files are, as usual, no help at all.

Hi. I am using Outlook 2003 with the Business Contact Manager installed. The PC is running XP Pro SP3.

The problem I'm having is that the appointment reminder doesn't work. I don't know why because I use Outlook 2003 on 3 computers and this one is the only one that has this issue. Could it be something with the BCM since it's only on this PC?

Try to open Outlook with the switch "/cleanreminders"
Syntax would be like this (without quotations):

I think it might work if you type only "outlook /cleanreminders"

On upgrading from Outlook 2003 to 2007 the calendar view now includes the meeting organiser in the calendar entry. Worse still the organiser is automatically generated by Outlook from the profile of whoever makes the diary entry and quite often this is not the person who owns the meeting.

This creates a very cluttered view of the appointments and distracts from the purpose.
The weekly and Monthly views are impacted by this.

Can anyone please describe how to modify/ remove elements that show in the appointment details especially the "Meeting Organiser Field"?:

I just installed Outlook 2007 on my computer. Everything seems to work properly with one exception. When I attempt to email an appointment I create in the calendar view, the email message goes to the Outbox but just stays there. Other email messages go out without any problem. Actually I noticed that if I edit a calendar item I created in Outlook 2002 before I upgraded to 2007 and send this updated item, it gets sent.

I am guessing there is some formatting issue/option I have overlooked.

I am able to receive calendar appointments I receive from email. They get scheduled in my 2007 calendar properly.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

NOTE: I installed the Office 2007 Enterprise version but am NOT connected to an Exchange server.

My PC uses Windows XP and I am using Outlook 2007. In the Calendar Section, I have recently got a "Reminder" which wont be dismissed.

When I DO click Dismiss, I get a message: Cannot turn off the reminder. You may be reminded again. Cannot locate recurrence information for this appointment.

It was an entry to do some extra cover at work that I did for some time, but I deleted a while ago, but don't understand why if the calendar entry has been deleted that the reminder has not!?!

I also sync with an iPhone which of course mirrors the calendar and I suppose at some point the iPhone HAD the calendar entry when the PC did not, but after the sync it should have been deleted to match the PC.

Is there any way I can I get rid of this reminder?

I like to type appointments directly on the calendar in Outlook 2007. The problem is that the default setting for appointments is for a reminder to pop up which I don't like.

I can certainly open the appointment and change it to no reminder, but this defeats the efficiency of a quick typing on to the calendar. Is there a way to change the default reminder to "none?"

Hi all,

I'm gradually learning VBA for Outlook 2003, which we still use at work. I can successfully create a custom command bar (and buttons) in the main Outlook window, but I want to have it associated only with an open appointment (the buttons are to run code specific to an appointment). I think I need to have the code attach it to an open Appointment Inspector, but I don't have the necessary skill to set this up. I'd be really grateful if anyone could point me in the right direction and save the frustration!

Many thanks.

Update OK - I've now worked out how to use VBA to create the command bar and buttons in an open Appointment Inspector window. I can get the code to run by using F5 from the VB window, but I still need the code to express, "Automatically run this subroutine each time an appointment inspector window opens."

Any help gratefully received!

Good Afternoon,

I'm quite stuck trying to fix my code. I've scoured the internet looking for similar questions, but to no avail. I am trying to have excel create appointments in the outlook calendar and be able to run the macro multiple times without have duplicate appointments.

I could run my macro and create an appointment, which worked fine, but there was no routine to check if the appointment already existed. So I would have multiple appointment alerts for the same appointment if I ran the macro more than once. (If I were to add something and run the macro again to keep everything up to date).

So I tried to add a loop checking first the date of the appointment then the title (subject). However, now, I am getting the "Object doesn't support this property or method" error when I run the following code.

If anyone could help me with what the error refers to specifically in my code or any code I need to add or take out to make my loop work I would really appreciate it. Thank you very much in advance.

Is there a option to block this? And yes how?Pleas note the orginal author doesn't speak very good English and it has been asked on a Dutch forum. So I will translate the answer.

We want to allow users to schedule a leave request using out Outlook leave request calendar.
Is there a way for other users to see the requester’s name but not the details of the request?
