Questions & Answers re Smart Schedules for Outlook

By standss Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

Things are really starting to happen fast. We are launching Smart Schedules for Outlook on 3rd June – less than 24 hours away.

If you haven’t seen the video of how easy, fast and error-free scheduling of appointments (and tasks) in Outlook can be, take a look at the video now.

We are busy putting the finishing touches to the website and related material in place.

Actually, the software itself is complete and ready to go, we are just getting everything in order so we can handle the huge rush once we launch… after all this is being launched to more than 20,000 Outlook users.

In any case, we have been getting a HUGE NUMBER OF QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS coming in which is truly appreciated.

It seems that the information I have sent out over the last few weeks has struck a chord with many people (I think that’s the right use of the phrase) and I want to answer all your questions before the actual launch.

I suspect that we will be under a lot of pressure once we launch so I may not be able to answer questions then.

I hope that the following answers help you make up your mind about the software and snap up the 200 copies of additional software that we will be giving away.


I’ve had a few questions with regard to both Smart Schedules and the launch process. I’ve tried to answer them below:

Q: The video showed Smart Schedules in Outlook 2007. Does Smart Schedule work in other versions of Outlook too?

A. YES. Smart Schedules works with Outlook 2003, 2007, and 2010.

Q: I seem to receive your emails in the middle of the night. I don’t want to miss out on the limited software that you are giving out for early movers.

A. I have absolutely no idea how long the first 200 sales will take BUT… the emails I have received seem to indicate that demand is high. If you don’t make the first 200 because of a time zone difference, please email me within 24 hours of the launch email.

Q. Are there sample templates for my industry to help me get started?

A. Definitely. We have included templates for many industries including legal and real estate. However please use these templates as a starting point only. You need to refine them to ensure that the appointments and tasks are scheduled correctly for the way your business works.

Q. Is there a way to share my templates with other people in my organization?

A. YES! Smart Schedules lets you export and import templates easily

Q. Can I have a template with appointments/tasks scheduled both before and after the trigger date?

A. Yes. We did not originally have this but feedback from readers made it clear that this was an essential feature that you wanted.

Q. What about existing appointments and tasks? Can they be added to Projects so that they show up in the Project Centre.

A. Yes. Again this was something that readers pointed out. We appreciate your great ideas and are happy to report that this has been implemented for you to use as well.

Q: How much will Smart Schedules cost?

A. Sorry but you have to wait till tomorrow (3rd June) to find out but we will be giving a SUBSTANTIAL DISCOUNT to anyone who purchases during the launch week.

We will be launching in less than 24 hours time. Once again I wish to thank you all for taking the time to read my report, watch our video and having faith in our solutions.

Oh… one last thing: we are going to have a rock-solid guarantee for Smart Schedules for Outlook – 60 days for anyone who purchases during the launch week. I truly believe that Smart Schedules will make a dramatic change in the productivity of many users and I want to make sure you have enough time to feel its benefits.

Till tomorrow…

Have a better Outlook.

PS: The launch takes place in less than 24 hours. See the video now to see if you want to claim the 200 copies of extra software that we are giving away.

  1. Sanjay,
    I am really excited about this product. It appears easy to use and will be quite helpful in keeping tasks from slipping through the cracks.
    One question, though, it says that if a deadline slips, and you change it in the software, all of the other deadlines will advance accordingly. What happens if a deadline slips (which happens in my business often), but all of the other tasks must stay on schedule and the project must still be completed on time? From the video I was not clear if you could change the date of one or two items (tasks or appointments) without changing the rest of the items changing automatically.
    Thanks in advance for your answer!

  3. Hello Michele,

    It is possible in Smart Schedules to reschedule the due date for a single appointment or task item in the series without affecting the other related items.

    If you have downloaded Smart Schedules, you will notice on the first step of the Reschedule wizard, you can select which items you would like to reschedule. You can select the one item which you want to reschedule and complete the wizard.

    I hope I have provided you with the requested information.

    Please let us know if you have any further queries.
