Release Notes

I developed this Microsoft Outlook Addin to present statistics based on people with whom a user has corresponded or from whom he or she has received emails. The Addin allows users to select an email folder and then specify a keyword. The application presents a sorted results table that contains the names of the people with whom he or she corresponded, their total email count, and the specified keyword/email rate for each person. This is useful for research (or curiosity) purposes—to provide some indication of who is more attached to a certain topic or project; who is more emotional, more direct, and more practical; who expresses closeness or affection for others; and to determine who is a difficult person, etc. Another reason to use such an email analysis application is to assess whether a certain project is progressing in the right direction. It can also be used to analyze employee satisfaction/dissatisfaction if certain words are used more than others in certain periods. Finally, it can predict internal/external organizational trends. Obviously, this is just a basic implementation (a five-hour project) and can be extended using advanced natural language and classification techniques. Adding charts of course is necessary—for example, x represents a person’s name and y is a keyword/per email rate, or for a certain period (say for each quarter), x specifies keyword names and y counts occurrences. A chart can also be dedicated to one specific keyword, in which x is time and y counts occurrences, to demonstrate variability over time for the keyword. To compile the code on a machine, it might be necessary to create a test certificate. In Visual Studio 2010, go to "Properties" -> "Signing,” then press "Create Test Certificate...," and provide a password.

Enjoy!
