|VBOffice Reporter is an easy to use tool for data analysis and reporting in Outlook. A single click, for instance, allows you to see the number of hours planned for meetings the next month.|
The NewInspector event fires when a new item is being created. So, that seems to be the time to edit the item, e.g. add a text to the item's body.
But there're object properties that aren't available yet. For instance, if you edit the item's Subject in NewInspector you won't see the change. The solution is using the Inspector's Activate event instead.
(It wouldn't be Outlook if there were no exception: Taskitems can and must be edited in the NewInspector event, they don't fire the very first Activate event.)
