Project Description

I use Toodledo, a web-based to do list. I would like someone to create an Outlook visual basic script to help me use it better.

Basically, Toodledo allows input via email, using a customized address I would like to send emails that need follow up to the recipients, and then a slightly customized, more descriptive version to Toodledo.

As of now I send many emails that I would like to go in my Toodledo @waiting folder (or context). Sending it to my Toodledo bcc address loses valuable info:

1) It’s not clear who the recipient is

2) The title sometimes includes the wrong description

3) It’s not filed into @waiting

I would like a visual basic script that will send more descriptive @waiting items from Outlook to Toodledo. The item in Toodledo should contain the date, who the email was sent to, and an optional descriptive title.

Here’s a potential script workflow:

1) script triggered by a keyboard shortcut

2) email to recipient sent

3) Outlook presents an input box with two text fields

a. The first for descriptive title containing as a default the email's subject line

b. The second is blank for the folder

4) Outlook sends an email to Toodledo email with the following info

a. In the subject line: Name of recipient -- descriptive title or default subject line (day/month of email), @waiting and, if applicable, the folder

i. Example: John Smith—website redesign (12/31) @waiting *website

b. body should contain full email, including all recipients and original subject line

The full Toodledo email syntax can be found at [url removed, login to view], but the relevant parts are as follows:

• context = @ + context. For this it is @waiting

• folder = *+folder. For example, *website

If anybody who has experience with visual basic in Outlook wants to take this task on, please contact me.
