Book Description

Microsoft Outlook, in tandem with Microsoft Exchange Server, provides a powerful environment for sharing information. This book will show you how to take advantage of that to construct solutions for your business or organization from the features of Outlook.

This book is a collection of scenarios that incorporate and link many Outlook components to produce surprisingly powerful functionality.

Without the need for code or specially-written applications, you will be extracting information from your Outlook Calendar, Contacts and Tasks folders to create solutions like these:

  • Monitoring staff leave and printing schedules
  • Managing meeting rooms and printing invoices
  • Managing fleet vehicles, their records, and servicing
  • Managing a school class calendar, student records, attendance, assignments, and reports
