Send and Outlook reminder from Filemaker


Hi all,

I wonder whether this is possible as I have been unable to find anything that currently covers this question, there are references to this but no actual answer. The question is normally push to integration with Outlook through a plug-in or building a calendar within the system, Like Seedcode have done.

What I am looking to do is get filemaker to create an outlook reminder in the same way this it can send an e-mail, so that when the recipient goes to their new item, it is in the format of an Appointment/reminder that Outlook (or similar mail programs) would interpret as a signal to create an appointment in it's own diary. 

The reason for this, I have already incorporate a calendar for internal use, but I want a 'remindar' to be sent to the customer, and that to be automatically formated as a calendar entry.

I hope that this makes sense, and I hope that it is something that some-one has seen or tried before me.

Thank you for all your help in advance.
