How to use Outlook Voting options in an email


#1

Hello,

I want to send Outlook emails with the VotingOptions, but have not been able to figure out how to do it.

I have tried using Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.MailItem datatype but when doing Assign, setting “mail” variable like this… mail.VotingOptions, UIPath doesn’t recognize VotingOptions.

Anyone have any idea how to send emails with Voting options and also interpret them when they are sent back?

Thanks,
Jeff

Hi… did you manage to find a solution for the voting options in the email? If “Yes” could you please share the solution as well since I am also having a similar requirement.
Thanks

I did, we ended up creating an outlook template file (*.msg file) that already has the voting buttons setup. Then we just fill in the blanks programatically. So with this method you’ll need the bot to use the Outlook desktop app vs SMTP or any other means.
