Author: Xiaoyang Last Modified: 2018-11-29

Normally, after sending the emails or meetings, both of them will be located into the Sent Items folder. So, the Sent Items folder will be considerably messy and cumbersome. This article, I will introduce a method for moving the sent meetings to another folder automatically after the meeting is sent out.

To move all sent meeting invitations to another folder automatically, the following code can help you, please do as this:

2. In the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window, double click ThisOutlookSession from the Project1(VbaProject.OTM) pane to open the mode, and then copy and paste the following code into the blank module.

VBA code: Automatically move the sent meetings to a specific folder

Private WithEvents GExplorer As Outlook.Explorer
Public WithEvents GSentFolder As Outlook.Folder
Public WithEvents GSentItems As Outlook.Items
Private Sub Application_Startup()
    Set GExplorer = Outlook.Application.ActiveExplorer
End Sub
Private Sub GExplorer_SelectionChange()
Dim xFolder As Folder, xRootFolder As Folder
Dim xRootFldName As String
Dim xPos As Integer
    On Error Resume Next
    Set xFolder = Outlook.Application.ActiveExplorer.CurrentFolder
    xPos = VBA.InStr(3, xFolder.FolderPath, "\")
    If xPos > 0 Then
        xRootFldName = VBA.Mid(xFolder.FolderPath, 3, xPos - 3)
        xRootFldName = VBA.Mid(xFolder.FolderPath, 3, Len(xFolder.FolderPath) - 2)
    End If
    Set xRootFolder = Outlook.Application.Session.Folders(xRootFldName)
    Set GSentFolder = xRootFolder.Folders("Sent Items")
    Set GSentItems = GSentFolder.Items
End Sub
Private Sub GSentItems_ItemAdd(ByVal Item As Object)
    Dim xMeetingItem As Outlook.MeetingItem
    Dim xTargetFolder As Outlook.Folder
    On Error Resume Next
    If Item.Class <> olMeetingRequest Then Exit Sub
    Set xMeetingItem = Item
    Set xTargetFolder = GSentFolder.Folders("Meetings")
    If xTargetFolder Is Nothing Then
        Set xTargetFolder = GSentFolder.Folders.Add("Meetings")
    End If
    xMeetingItem.Move xTargetFolder
End Sub
