With the loss of the AppleScript menu in Outlook 15, what is the easiest way to launch AppleScripts from within Outlook?

In earlier versions, these scripts were located in /Users/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Office/Outlook Script Menu Items/. Is this folder still relevant?

  • Located here now: /Users/[user]/Library/Scripts/Applications/Outlook

You can use the AppleScript menu on the Menu bar. Script Editor > Preferences... > General

  • Script Menu: [√] Show Script menu in menu bar

Place your scripts in: ~/Library/Scripts

enter image description here

Or create Automator Service workflows using a Run AppleScript action.

  1. Automator > New > Service
  2. Service receives selected no input in any application
  3. Add a Run AppleScript action
  4. Replace the default AppleScript code with you code.
  5. Save the Service workflow. (They are automatically saved in: ~/Library/Services)

You can now access them from the Services menu in Outlook.

You can also assign a keyboard shortcut to any Service workflow that might be relevant to have one. This is done in: System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Services

Or use a third-party utility like FastScripts.
