Has anyone looked in OF2 to Outlook 2015? Today I’m using the great script which copies the text of the mail and the link back to the original mail. In Outlook 2015 I don’t even see a scripts menu ;( So, I’m using the mail drop feature until something better is found.
What’s a somewhat positive outcome if the OLD link open the mail in the new Outlook! Interesting, I wonder where it’s finding these old mails? In the old identity folder I guess.
Anyway, this topic needs to go on the radar as Outlook 2015 will replace the 2011 version sometime next year.
I can confirm that I have the same issue. I am to using the mail drop feature and Apple Mail with Clip-o-tron as a work around for the time being. It appears that Microsoft has dropped support for Applescript in this release.
For what it’s worth, you can make an Outlook rule than runs an Applescript. Unfortunately it can’t have a hot key to trigger it. But at least Outlook 2015 does support Applescript even if it doesn’t have a dedicated menu as before.
I wanted to chime in, in case this was ever resolved. Also – as per the comment above – to point out that sandboxing / Mac App Store is ruining OmniFocus and to beg and plead that a real, non-crippled version be released that can address these issues. Thanks!
Mother Microsoft has deemed the scripts menu doesn’t belong in Office 2015, although the apps themselves are still fully scriptable. So, you have a couple of options: make a rule to execute a script which you manually trigger, or use a script utility like FastScripts to trigger the script. Hope this helps.
on a sidenote - it looks like in a recent update of Outlook 2015 (I have 15.6), Microsoft pulled the ability to use a rule to run an Applescript. Run Applescript simply is not there anymore. It was there in 15.3.
You can use Automator to create a service to run apple script and assign a shortcut key via Outlook -> Services menu.
I cannot seem to find a way to save the Outlook 15 message to file so that I can attach the original mail to the OmniFocus. The following command that worked perfectly fine in the previous Outlook for Mac versions errors out in Outlook 15 for Mac.
