Through the “advanced view settings” in Outlook 2010, it is possible to group a list of contacts by company. I want something a bit more advanced than that. In addition to just group by company I want a nice little header with
information about the company, such as address, web page, headquarter phone number etc.
Is something like this possible to achieve by using Macros/VBA or VSTO? If so, Can I somehow build on the existing “contact list template”, or do I have to make this from scratch? I would appreciate if someone can point me in the right direction. Thanks.
You'd need to build an add-in using VSTO or Add-in Express. Both supporting creating a Task Pane that you can dock above the message list, although Add-in Express has way more flexibility in this area. FYI, what you want to do has nothing to
do with View functionality or custom forms/templates.
