Thank you for the feedback. I’ve downloaded the plugin yesterday, just wanted to make sure I was exploring the right plugin. thanks again.
I’ve installed the outlook plugin and saw the videos. I’m currently testing it out and need help with the following:
What is the best way to relate each email to a specific filemaker record. In our filemaker database each record is an event and we need to be able to archive all the emails relating to that event only. Is this possible with this plugin ?
In my outlook I’ve created an new inbox folder called, “Events” and I moved all related emails to this folder. I then do a “Clean Import from Outlook” and push all those emails into filemaker. Now i have all work emails in FileMaker, how can I relate each email to a certain record ?
Very tricky Alex! I did something along these lines years ago (FM 6) and I had a routine that parse the subject of replies for a reference that we put in the original email. Of course that only worked when people replied rather than sending original emails.
To get around this I send unresolved emails to a separate area to have the reference manually inserted.
There is no easy way!
Thank you. I'm thinking of having an email database and adding a record ID field. I would manually have to populate this field to show the emails in a portal. Sending the email I can automate this process, but recieving the emails is the issue.
I'm still playing with the demo. thank you.
