Retrieve Created Date of Outlook Appointment in Powershell RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi I can read the start and end date but not the "created" field of an appointment in powershell? Can this be done?

    ($apApointment.Start.ToString())

    But

    ($apApointment.Created.ToString()) has a null value

     

    Thanks

  • Hello Ben,

    Thank you for the info. The property you want is called DateTimeCreated, not Created.

  • Hi Apologies, here is the code, returning all appointments for today with Organizer, Subject, Start and End, but the Created Field returns null?:

    $MailboxName = "mymailbox@me.com"
    $StartDate = [System.DateTime]::Now
    $EndDate = [System.DateTime]::Now.AddDays(1)
    $StartDay = [System.DateTime]::Today
    $EndDay = [System.DateTime]::now.tostring("dd") + " " +[System.DateTime]::now.tostring("MMMM") + " " + [System.DateTime]::now.tostring("yyyy") + " 23:59:00"

    $dllpath = "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange\Web Services\1.0\Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.dll"
    [void][Reflection.Assembly]::LoadFile($dllpath)
    $service = New-Object Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.ExchangeService([Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.ExchangeVersion]::Exchange2007_SP1)

    $windowsIdentity = [System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity]::GetCurrent()
    $sidbind = "LDAP://<SID=" + $windowsIdentity.user.Value.ToString() + ">"
    $aceuser = [ADSI]$sidbind

    $service.AutodiscoverUrl($aceuser.mail.ToString())

    $folderid = new-object  Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.FolderId([Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.WellKnownFolderName]::Calendar,$MailboxName)
    $CalendarFolder = [Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.CalendarFolder]::Bind($service,$folderid)
    $cvCalendarview = new-object Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.CalendarView($StartDate,$EndDay,2000)
    $cvCalendarview.PropertySet = new-object Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.PropertySet([Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.BasePropertySet]::FirstClassProperties)
    $frCalendarResult = $CalendarFolder.FindAppointments($cvCalendarview)

    foreach ($apApointment in $frCalendarResult.Items){
        $psPropset = new-object Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.PropertySet([Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.BasePropertySet]::FirstClassProperties)
        $apApointment.load($psPropset)
        $apApointment.organizer.ToString()
        $apApointment.subject.ToString()
        $apApointment.Start.ToString()
        $apApointment.End.ToString()
        $apApointment.Created.ToString()
    }

    I get "You cannot call a method on a null-valued expression." - Although I'm sure Created is a field. Also tried CreatedTime CreatedDate but to no avail

    Many Thanks
