1.3 Overview

The Journal Object Protocol allows a user to track activity on a meeting, task, or contact. Activity on a file such as a spreadsheet or word-processing document can also be tracked. This protocol defines a Journal object to represent a journal entry that contains a log of the activity. The properties of a Journal object specify the name of the activity, the duration, any contacts that are associated with the activity, and other details. The Journal object is stored in a Folder object.

The Journal Object Protocol extends the Message and Attachment Object Protocol, described in [MS-OXCMSG], in that it defines new properties on the Message object and adds constraints to the existing properties of the Message object.
