Good Day All

My name is Pam and I have a small issue.

?How to create templet's in Outlook 2007?

Reason: I'm the Enterprise Change Manager/Problem Manager for my local government and just looking for a uniformed way to send out emergency change notifications to customer and internal IT personnel.

Need: Is their anyway to turn these items in to templet's to be shared with my team with in Outlook?  
Just want to automate my process so that no one has to copy and paste from a word doc..

Thank you in advance for all of your help!

You can do this. - [)ia6l0 iii replied to Pamela Harris on 09-Sep-09 01:10 PM

You should be able to call a javascript function and change the value of the textbox. 

Like,
<asp:HyperLink runat="server"  onClick="clientMethod('<%# Eval("valuetoupdate") %>');">click </asp:Hyperlink> 

And,  write the client-side javascript function like this:
 <script language="javascript">
        function clientMethod(value) {
            document.getElementById("txtBoxID").value = value;
        }
</script>

Or even use the itemcommand for server-side function call:

<asp:TemplateField>
                    <ItemTemplate>
                        <asp:Hyperlink  ID="hlSample" runat="server" CommandArgument='<%# Eval("valueToUpdate") %>'  CommandName="Update" OnCommand="itemcommand" />
                    </ItemTemplate>
                </asp:TemplateField>
      
And , then in itemcommand event:    
protected void itemcommand(object sender, CommandEventArgs e) 
//Use (e.CommandName == "Update" ) to determine the action,
       //and then use the e.CommandArgument  to retrieve the value to be updated

Ignore my previous reply. It was meant for other thread :-) 

http://www.ehow.com/how_2064447_create-template-outlook-2007.html talks about the steps needed to create a template. 

There is a video version here

also, search Office Online for sample templates.
