Outlook 2010 Forms RRS feed

  • Question

  • I modified the Message form so I could use it for phone messages.  I added two fields "You Were Called By:" and "You Were Visited BY:".  I saved the form as Phone Message and published it.  When I use Choose a Form to open it the fields are there but when I sent the email the fields are not there when the recipient opens the email.  What am I doing wrong?

  • Sending emails and having the recipient see your custom form requires that they have the custom form published in their Personal Forms Library or in another forms library, and that the email was sent in RTF format. The recipients must also of course be using Outlook.

    I published it in the Personal Forms Library.  I created new fields in the Field Chooser and moved them to the form.  This is my first journey into creating my own forms.

  • Hi 4wayne,

    Thanks for posting in the MSDN Forum.

    I think we must confirm some options first:

    1. Where did you publish your form?
    2. Do you create corresponding control on the form for your field?

    Have a good day,

    Tom

  • Okay thanks.  I sent the form to myself to see how it looked but I sent it as html.  I think I will scrap this idea and do it another way.
