If you are like me, you may have found yourself adjusting to a few things while working from home. One of those things for me was working in Outlook online occasionally instead of the desktop application.
The layout and navigation are different in the online environment. In this blog, I would like to share with you a few of those differences and hopefully help you adjust a little quicker.
Microsoft Online defaults to a “Focused Inbox”. This feature attempts to automatically group your messages based on importance. You can turn it off by going to Settings (the gear icon in the top right) and then, under the layout category, select “Don’t sort my messages”. Click Save.
To access the settings in Microsoft Outlook online, you will find a gear icon in the top right corner. In the Desktop Application, you may be used to finding this by clicking File and then Options. This is where you’ll find calendar and mail folder setting.
You may also notice a few features missing in the online application, like “Quick Steps”. Other features, like “Outlook Rules” are not as robust as they are in the desktop application. These are just a couple of things you will trade-off for working in the cloud.
We love feedback from our customers and implement suggestions often. If you have a question or idea for a Microsoft Application tip that you would like to see, let me know and I might write about it!
