Contact forms with Outlook RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I posted a question on Microsoft's forum some days ago, and was told to post it here.

    Don't know where to post it though.

    Basically, my question is "Is there any way to make a form that clients can fill out, which upon saving will save them as a contact to my Outlook?"

  • Hello Martin,

    VBA macro or COM add-in can be used for implementing that. Be aware, VBA macros are not designed for distributing the solution on multiple machines. Read more about that in the Getting Started with VBA in Outlook 2010 article.

    Also you can create a form region where users can fill all the required fields on the contact item. See Creating Outlook Form Regions for more information.

    You may consider VSTO based add-in as a regular .Net application, so you can use Windows Forms there.
