What's New in version

  • Fixed issue where calendar could not be interacted with
  • Fixed open links in About box
  • Runs on .net core 3 instead of .net framework

What's New in version 3.7.5:

  • Fix issue where opening and closing Outlook while OotD was running, would cause OotD to stop working.
  • Potentially fix issue for some where OotD would refuse to start, citing that it could not find Outlook installed on the machine.

What's New in version 3.7.0:

  • Uses .NET 4.7.2 Framework for additional performance and HiDPI improvements
  • Other miscellaneous fixes and polish.

What's New in version 3.6.0:

  • Now has a single installer for both 32-bit and 64-bit office, which should reduce confusion quite a bit.
    • Important Notes:
    • If you had the 64-bit version installed, when upgrading, it will reset your OotD settings to the defaults. To get a single installer to work, and in particular, to detect the bitness of Office, the minimum supported version had to be bumped to Office 2010 (from 2003).
  • Uses .NET Framework 4.7.1 for additional performance and HiDPI improvements.
  • Uses a delayed scheduled task for running OotD on startup, which should reduce startup errors when trying to load Outlook prematurely.
  • Updater now shows release notes properly formatted.

What's New in version 3.2.1:

  • Fixed issue where HiDPI enhancements from .NET 4.5.2 were not being applied properly
  • Streamlined installation/upgrade process. Will now offer to automatically close app during upgrade process

What's New in version 3.2.0:

  • Updated .NET framework to 4.5.2 to take advantage of performance improvements and UI fixes for HiDPI. The downside to this is that the lowest supported version of Windows is now Vista SP2. Please use an older verison if you are still using Windows XP.

What's New in version 3.0.0:

  • Added buttons for: Go To Today, Previous and Next to the calendar view. They are context sensitive depending on what view you are looking at.
  • Replaced text on calendar buttons with images to make it more visually appealing and compact.
  • Added currently selected date to the header bar in the calendar view.
  • Made transparency slider bar much easier to use.

Added automatic check for updates functionality:

  • Checks automatically every 20 days, or can be triggered via icon in system tray.
  • Added new logging framework to capture failures/program flow to help diagnose issues.

Fixed several bugs, including:

  • 'Calendar Could Not be Read' no longer pops up when switch calendar views in Outlook 2013
  • Fixed issue where month view would not be the default calendar view for new instances.
  • Fixed issue where moving cursor down from top of the window onto the calendar buttons would continue to show the resize cursor.
  • Fixed issue where 'Remove Instance' dialog would pop up behind instance windows.
  • When adding a new instance, its position is now properly saved.

What's New in version 2.0:

  • Completey new way to move and size windows. Grabbing the header allows for movement and grabbing any edge allows for sizing. The cumbersome preferences window is gone.
  • Opacity slider directly in header of each instance window.
  • Day/Work/Work Week/Month buttons in the header for the Calendar view (#1 most requested feature).
  • Outlook 2003 is now the minimum required version.
  • Multiple fixes and enhancements when working with multiple instances.
  • Other various bug fixes.

What's New in version 1.6.0:

  • Support for Outlook 2010 both 32-bit and 64-bit.
  • Fixed issue where ootd would crash or hang after opening and closing an item.
  • Fixed issue where ootd would fail to start on Vista/Windows 7 with the message: "Unable to get the window handle for the 'AxOVCtl' control. Windowless ActiveX controls are not supported."
  • Fixed issue where changing the view type to something other than calendar and then restarting ootd would result in a crash.

Known Issue(s):

  • You cannot interact with the calendar view when using Outlook 2010. Every other view works fine. This appears to be a bug on Microsoft's end, and will hopefully be fixed in a future update.

What's New in version 1.5.4:

  • On Windows 7, the calendar will always remain visible when you hover over the "Show Desktop" button.

What's New in version 1.5.3:

  • Several under the hood cleanups and fixes resulting in a smaller download package.
  • Several improvements to the installer, including:
    • Proper Windows 7 support
    • Removed option to create Desktop and Quick Launch icons since the app should always be running anyway and goes against the philosophy of this program (to have as little icons on the desktop as possible).
    • Ability to run the application after installing on Vista/Windows 7.
    • Web site and Uninstall shortcuts in the Start Menu Group
    • Uninstall now fully cleans up any files left behind.

What's New in version 1.5.2:
