The Outlook plug-in

Puac has a plug-in which can import Outlook tasks and appointments as alarm groups or synchronize alarm groups with Outlook tasks or appointments.

(Note that the help on this plug-in is only included here because the Outlook functionality used to be part of the program. Help on other plug-ins can not be found in this file.)

An Outlook alarm group contains alarms which correspond to your Outlook appointments or tasks. As far as possible, the alarms will act the same as the appointments or tasks. So if you set a reminder with a sound for an appointment, this will correspond to an alarm which displays a message and plays a sound.

You cannot change the alarms in this type of alarm group or add or remove them. The alarms are created and synchronized automatically. If you want to edit the alarms anyway and you don't want the alarm groups to be synchronized, you should use the 'Import Outlook appointments/tasks' option, which will import the appointments/tasks once. It's not possible to change your appointments/tasks in Outlook by editing the alarms.

Outlook synchronization plug-in

Currently, it is only possible to synchronize alarm groups with the default appointments/task folder.

The Outlook alarm groups have the following additional properties:

Only import future items
If you check this box, only appointments and tasks in the future will be converted to alarms.

Outlook import plug-in

The Outlook import plug-in can be used to import Outlook appointments/tasks once as a normal alarm group. The plug-in allows you to specify the following:

Name
The name of the alarm group

The folder
You can specify if you want to import the appointments/tasks from the default folder or if you want to import them from a folder you can select yourself after clicking 'Ok'.

Only import future items
If you check this box, only appointments and tasks in the future will be converted to alarms.
