Calendar Item Builder for Microsoft Outlook 2007

Executive Summary Calendar Item Builder for Outlook saves the user from retyping text displayed in one place (an Microsoft Office document or a web page) into Microsoft Outlook. By right-clicking over a event description and date plus time, Calendar Item Builder creates a Microsoft Outlook calendar item for the user to save, edit and save, or cancel the entry.
Solution Summary This is a user productivity tool that builds single or multiple calendar items from documents displayed by Microsoft Word, Microsoft OneNote or web pages displayed in Internet Explorer 7. The user moves the mouse over text representing a desired Calendar item, right clicks, and then selects Calendar Item Builder from the right-click menu. A calendar item is created and displayed. The user can save immediately, modify the entry, or cancel the item altogether.

 Should there be a number of calendar items in a table, Calendar Item Builder will prepare each of the items for Microsoft Outlook calendar, and give the user the opportunity to customize any, save all or some, or cancel all items.

Features include:

* Create a calendar item now using right-click menu in popular programs (Microsoft Word 2007, Microsoft OneNote 2007, and Internet Explorer 7.0).

* Calendar Item Builder leverages the power of Microsoft Outlook calendaring functions with the information that resides in documents and web content processed to improve productivity in normal business activities.

* Calendar Item Builder understands the most common ways of presenting events in text.

* User can save item immediately, edit and save or cancel creation of item.

* Calendar items are stored with the user's Microsoft Outlook data store, just as if she or he had entered the information.

* No cut and paste is required. This saves time and detail work, resulting in much better capture of the information.

* Source for the calendar item (source document UNC or url) is saved with the item, making it much easier to later confirm the source for an item.

* Default categories for the item(s) can be made and saved.

People in all industries and in all sizes of organizations work with calendaring in Microsoft Outlook. Calendar Item Builder will improve productivity in many organizations.


Calendar item information is embedded in Microsoft Office documents (initially in Microsoft Word, Microsoft OneNote and on web pages displayed by Internet Explorer. Calendar Item build extracts that information to build Outlook calendar item(s), which can then be saved in the user's calendar data store.
