Microsoft outlook program

P: n/a
Hi All,

I am interested in writing an app or add-in for MS Outlook (I don't
have any previous experience in this area). My main objective is
following

1. I want to manage who are the people who need to be notified.
2. I want to create a groups of people as a part of 1.
3. Each group will have pre-defined set of dates assigned to them to do
something on a particular date. Say 3rd of Jan, every one need to make
sure project is staged for testing. 13th of Jan project staged to
production etc.,
4. There will be one manager, they need to be notfied when the members
notifiy the completion of the appointment or remainder.

Is it possible at all or is there a better way to do this tasks that I
am overlooking???

Thanks.

IMO it is possible, Outlook exposes quite comprehensive automation API.
