While there is an open debate about how to run more effective meetings, we can be inefficient in providing our availability to get meetings scheduled. This is no longer the case with Leverage & Lean’s Outlook Quick Text of Calendar Availability macro! This Outlook macro will prompt you with a series of questions that will help you quickly gather the weekdays and times you are available to schedule a meeting. First the Quick Text of Calendar Availability macro will prompt you and ask for a list of what weekdays you can meet in the upcoming week. Next you will be prompted to confirm what time during the day you can meet either in the morning, afternoon, or all day. Finally, how long are you available to meet for example you can list 15, 30 or 60 minutes. After these questions are answered to current Outlook email will be populated automatically with the series of weekdays (with date formatted MM/DD/YYYY), available times and duration of when you are available to meet. With this text now in the Outlook email body you can make your final adjustment removing times that shouldn’t appear. The Quick Text of Calendar Availability Outlook macro provides a standardized way of providing your meeting availability consistently each time! No longer will it be necessary to type out all this information which can be an annoying undertaking when your desire is to move on to a task that provides more value. If you are interested in something more dynamic that references your Outlook Calendar directly checkout our Insider version of the Outlook Quick Text of Calendar Availability macro! This Insider version of this Outlook macro capture the current selection you have made on your Outlook Calendar copying that availability to your clipboard. This Insider macro is powerful in that you can continue to make additional selections on your Outlook Calendar adding additional available to your clipboard to provide multiple meeting options over a handful of weekdays.

In regards to Word Create Outlook Email with Selected Text | VBA Macro #29
This is so perfect!
Thank you so much!
At my job, we recently switched over to Office 365.
Previously we had an email template that we could fill out (using field codes [select all+F9]) but that is no longer available in Office 365, as only Word has the Field Code capability now.
I was trying to find some sort of solution using Word, and yours was the best thing I could find on the web!
YOU are the awesome one!
In regards to Excel Find and Replace across Multiple Word Documents | VBA Macro #30 and custom work.
The use case for CheckTheBible.com was to convert all the variations of Bible verse codes (B C:V - Book Chapter:Verse) in any text to a standardized code. For example, "John 17:21" should be "Joh 17:21." Once the variations are converted, then the next step is to convert them to a markdown language so they can be used in Obsidian.
I found Brent through his YouTube channel: Leverage & Lean (https://www.youtube.com/LeverageLean). Out of all the macro videos, the "Excel Find and Replace across Multiple Word Documents" video seemed like it could help automate a seemingly manual process.
I contacted Brent to see what could be done with my use case. From our first discussion, Brent has always been very understanding and patient with my situation and listened to my suggestions for improving the macro’s speed and efficiency.
Once he understood the end goal, Brent took my improvements to heart and ran with them. Now with this improved macro, I can take on any set of variables, modify a few words, and convert them to the final result. This custom macro searches Word Documents for Bible verse codes, uses a standardized list of 30+ thousand B C:V codes to convert to the markdown language automatically with 100% accuracy.
I have had a great experience working with Brent. Not only does he clarify expectations so it was set up for success, but most importantly, he has always come up with creative and comprehensive suggestions even outside the scope of macro building. Brent was really consulting me to do more than what I had thought possible.
