Where does ClearContext store the topics?

Postby lev_ko » Mon Apr 03, 2006 2:54 pm


For each Outlook item, where does ClearContext store its context?

Other tools use user-defined fields to store data, which allows creating more sophisticated views, VBA scripts and better PDA synchronization.

The ultimate definition of topic assignment is in a hidden thread record table. When a new item appears, ClearContext looks to that thread record table to determine topic assignment. This allows us to support topic assignment to conversations rather than individual items.

That said, for individual inbox messages, we also write the Topic to the item in a field called CC-TopicName. This is to support exactly the behavior you suggest - the creation of custom views and manipulation of data by topic.

We do not currently write the topic name to individual tasks or appointments. This feature has been requested and we are looking into what it would take to implement in a future release. I cannot estimate when we would implement at this time. Watch our corporate weblog for an upcoming update to our product plan.
