How to automatically display the "To" portion: Outlook 2007


K

Krishnan

Coming to scheduling meetings in Outlook 2007, When I click on "New" from the
Calendar, the "Untitled - Appointment" window opens up with the fields
"Subject" and "Location" displayed. To invite attendees, one needs to click
on the "Invite Attendees" button on the menu, and then the "To" field appears.

My question is - is there a default option where the "To" field is always
displayed. I find it strange that as most meetings would be between atleast 2
people the "To" field should be displayed by default. Or atleast there must
be an option to do that through customisation.

Help will be appreciated, as well as what was the logic in not displaying
the "To" field in the default view

Outlook has Meetings and Appointments. The New button defaults to making the
one that doesn't invite attendees. Just change your process a bit and you'll
save those precious clicks:

wipe the spot and then right click on the spot in the Calendar where you
want a meeting
Select "new meeting invitation"

You can use this in your custom form:

Function Item_Open()
If MeetingStatus = 0 Then
MeetingStatus = 1
End If
End Function

It will enable the to section and automaticly invite the attendees.
