Do you have broken rules and feel limited by the Outlook rules wizard? The Power Rules Manager add-in for Microsoft® Outlook® simplifies managing your Outlook rules. Your rules will be shown in a clear and simple grid so you can take control of your rules.
The add-in also helps you to save space in your Outlook rules by making it easy to consolidate your rules. Not only does it have the ability to sort your rules by the folders involved so you can quickly see which rules are similar, but you can now simply click the “Consolidate Rules” button to have rules that have identical actions merged into a single rule! Merging Outlook rules saves a lot of space. For instance, if you know that you have three rules that move messages into a particular folder, but based on different conditions, then those three rules can be coalesced into a single rule with all three conditions.
- Adds a toolbar button directly into Outlook for easy access to your rules
- Easily sort Outlook rules by name, what order they run, by the folders involved in the rule, by the people involved in the rule, and more
- Set Execution Order feature allows you to easily set the execution order of all your rules at once
- Print your Outlook rules
- Easily edit rules inline in the grid
- Save Outlook rules to a plain text file (TXT), a comma delimited file (CSV), or Microsoft® Excel® (XLS) formats
- Find/Find Next feature allows you to quickly hone in on the rules that matter most to you
- Backup and Restore your rules (to an editable XML file)
- Bulk replace folders to all your rules at once
- Fix rules with the Validate Folders and People button
- Save space in your Outlook rules with the Consolidate Rules and the Find and Repair Duplicate Rules button
- Easily execute selected (or all) Outlook rules against folders you select
- Works with Microsoft Exchange Server but doesn't require it
- Works with Microsoft Outlook 2013 and 2010 (64-bit and 32-bit) and Outlook 2007 (note: not Outlook 2003 or below)
There are five validation checks built into the add-in. You can flag duplicate rule names, find and repair duplicate rules, validate and automatically correct missing Stop actions, verify folders and contacts involved in each rule, and consolidate/merge your rules. Each of these checks has their own button so you can invoke them separately to check Outlook rule consistency at any time. The Validate Stop Actions
feature alone is worth the price of the add-in because it will flag all the rules that have a move action but no corresponding stop processing more rules action. Not having a stop processing more rules action is a primary reason for getting duplicate emails
