The Move Old Emails macro will do this for you allowing you to focus on what emails you have left. Spend more time in your inbox and get more done! This macro is easily customizable to meet your unique needs. ***Tip: The Move Old Emails macro can be scheduled to reoccur automatically on your Outlook Calendar using the Call action from the Outlook Calendar Reminder Macros.

Word InputBox Call Macros | VBA Macro #27

More Macros More Buttons.  If you create enough macros you will begin to question if a button needs to be created for each one.  It is overwhelming when there are too many custom macro buttons to select from. This also makes navigating to run a specific macro difficult. To address this issue, we created the macro Word InputBox Call Macros! This Word macro displays an InputBox with a list of macros that can be called.  To call a specific macro just enter in the leading number and click ok. The concept of this macro is simple and helps you stay organized storing all macros within one button.

Outlook Create Multiple Emails | VBA Macro #25

You just completed a task on your computer and now you need to email some impacted parties letting them know the task is complete.  Let’s say for example you have to email the client, the billing department, and your supervisor.  You could send one email including all these recipients but this is a problem if you are sending sensitive information specific to everyone involved.  Even if there isn’t sensitive information someone can use Reply All creating an email thread with everyone included. There has to be a better way…of course there is with VBA! This Outlook macro will create multiple emails based on the number that you indicate in an InputBox.  Think of this Create Multiple Emails macro as a code template that allows you generate multiple emails pertaining to different topics. Using the example above the first email can be dedicated to the client, the second email for the billing department, and the third email for your supervisor.
