UiPath Go ! BalaReva EasyOutlook Activities

Hi Friends,

I have developed some activities to make easy the outlook automation.

Easy way to automate Outlook tasks

The Microsoft Outlook Activities package contains the below activities that will help you easily automate common or repetitive Outlook tasks:

“New Appointment” - The activity creates a new Outlook appointment.

“Get Contacts” - The activity retrieves the needed contacts from Outlook.

“New Contact” - This activity enables you to create a new contact in Outlook.

“New Meeting” - Send a new meeting request to the specified people.

“Get All Notes” - The activity lists all your Outlook notes.

“New Notes” - The activity enables you to create a new Outlook note.


Install the package

Note :

  • If you get any unexpected error,Close the outlook application and run the automation.
  • Let me know if you have any errors.
  • I would be happy to get more suggestions.

Regards

Hi! Is there, by chance, an activity to read the meeting invites? Using the get messages activity does not read the invitations I receive in Outlook

Hi Balupad14, Thanks for sharing this.
I have a couple of questions:

  1. Can this activity add appointments to a calendar other than to our default one? For example: Can we use this to add appointments onto a shared calendar?
  2. In properties of the activity, what is the use of the parameter ‘Output > Added Result’? Why do we need this and why is it compulsory to pass this value?

Any info on the above will be helpful. Thanks in advance.

I have a problem using GetContact.
Basically the feature is working, I able to get the contact email, but after trigger getcontact, my outlook will automatically closed and I can’t access outlook.
i need to use task manager to kill the outlook task and reopen it every time i run.
Please help…

Hi @Eric_Siew,

I tested in my system. It is working well. The thing is after the activity retrieved the contacts. It will close the application. But it takes little seconds. maybe, you can use the delay after the activity.

Can you please send your Sample workflow?

Thank you

Hi Bala,

Is there a way we can make this so that it uses an indicated word file as body, like it is available with the official Microsoft package. If possible, please help me on this. And also please show the code on how to include multiple attachments while sending meeting invite

If possible, I would like to have a personal chat on this since I am new to C# and the language. I am an avid StudioX user. Hence would it be possible to help on this issue.

Hi @balupad14

Please help on this whenever possible. Because your solution module solves most of my mailing problems except for having the ability to choose a body of our choice i.e. using a word file as body. Please help on this.
