    I want to add a pop up message box for the person I am blocking the calendar of. After the scheduled calendar meeting is over I want a pop up that will help the other user input his comments about the meeting and send to me .

    In your response to Joey (windows 10 - says "send an email" and "display a message" are both (deprecated) and will not let me save those actions once configured), you said you could use a batch file. What is that and how do you set it up?
