Grouping mails by custom datetime userproperty as per outlook default RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    This is actually a continuation of a question that I posted here. Eugene Astafiev solved that question for me, but now, while doing further testing, came across an issue. So I'm (re)posting here to get an answer.

    For background on the question and my addin, please see the question linked above.

    Can someone explain how Outlook handles the grouping of date fields? When I add the grouping by modifying the TableView.GroupByFields group for a date field it gets grouped by the actual date - 01/05/2014, 02/05/2014, etc.. But I want to get it to work as per default, like Outlook groups the received field - as today, yesterday, last week, etc..

    Is this possible? How would I achieve it?

  • Hello Thimila, The easiest way is to explore such view (markup) in Outlook. You just need to create the required View in Outlook manually then observe the View related properties at runtime. Does it make sense?
