Hi,

I'm using OOM to send an Task Request. I want to attach some VB script along
with it so that when user accepts it will prompt and create corresponding
calendar event etc. in his outlook.

Is this possible?

NB: I don't want to use the Outlook Add-in functionality as I don't want the
user to download and install any add-ins

Regards,
Ashok G

I don't mind publishing the Form. How to attach the script with the
TaskRequest? which should be executed when they accept?

Regards
Ashok
