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.  Having only one custom button makes navigating much easier and creates a more consistent approach to calling macros.  It is easy to memorize what leading number calls what macro to run.  Just type that number and hit enter! To get started with this macro just make updates in the code to the display labels and map a leading number to a macro to be called.

VBA Macro used in the Microsoft Office Outlook Application

Outlook Send Same Email to Different Recipients | VBA Macro #31

To BCC or to not BCC?  That is the question that comes to mind when emailing a variety of different recipients.  This is especially important if you are working with multiple clients.  You can BCC recipients so they can’t click reply all. Recipients won’t see who was emailed but that is actually the problem.  The value is knowing who was emailed so customers know if additional follow-up is needed.  Instead you can CC recipients but once someone hits Reply All the conversation can get out of control.  This can create a bigger problem if the email thread is across multiple parties. Sending separate emails creates more value for the customer but how do you do this efficiently and effectively? You could create new emails do a lot of copying and pasting but this isn’t a sustainable process. Good news is there is always a better way with VBA! Our new Outlook macro makes sending the same email to different recipients so easy!
