1st November 2014

Add Date to Outlook
This is a facility we have deployed in only a few client sites but we think will be useful to others if they know it is available. It is a software widget that we include within your system that can take a date within the system and then add it to your MS Outlook diary.
We have used it in a few scenarios e.g. when you wish to add a vacancy close date reminder to your Outlook calendar, adding a screening date to your calendar, recording interview dates and having them updated in your calendar etc. The widget is compatible with MS Outlook (which almost all our clients seem to use) as well as Apple and Google email clients, so it covers all the main email systems.
If you are technically familiar with MS Outlook, you will know it is really difficult integrating any system with it. However this widget provides a good practical means of reliably passing information to Outlook and works via a button that when you click, it will open MS Outlook and will pass across event and date/time details to create your event in Outlook.
It’s a useful widget and till recently we had to recharge a license fee for each time we added it to a client’s system. We have now obtained a bulk license so it is effectively an option that can be deployed free of charge. Note if you are adding it to your configuration you will likely need us to perform some configuration work to integrate it within your workflow which will probably be chargeable. However this can generally be done fairly easily and in most cases will be minor and if there are any configuration charges they will be one-off.
