How to be organized with these cool features in the new outlook

Microsoft Outlook is a personal information manager from Microsoft, available as a part of the Microsoft Office Suite. Fully powered by Microsoft, Outlook for iOS and Android is designed to enable users to do more from their mobile devices by bringing together email, calendar, contacts, scheduling, task management services etc., while supporting most email accounts. This Personal Information Manager app allows you to keep up with all the updates even while you are away from your desk, just at your finger tips.

The Microsoft Outlook app for iPhone and iPad is redesigned to give user a sleek and smooth experience. Below are a few features picked for you to facilitate working on the go 


1. Read what’s really important

Outlook divides your emails into two categories: Focused and Other

the Focused inbox shows the emails that probably require timely replies, leaving mail like shipping confirmations and newsletters to the Other section to be handled later

And you can help Outlook improve. If you find an important email in Other, select it and tap the ellipsis icon followed by Move to Focused inbox to teach Outlook what’s important to you.

2. Search Smarter

Tap the magnifying glass on the bottom toolbar. Here you’ll find a mobile-optimized search engine built to find the emails you were looking for. The search screen lets you see all emails from your frequent contacts with a single tap. You can also swipe through a list of attached files- no need to tap in and out of endless email threads.

3. Go beyond email

Since email is just one of many tools for communication, Outlook has built-in integrations for Trello, Wunderlist, Evernote, and other apps you already use.

Convert emails into Trello cards, complete with due dates. Manage Wunderlist items in Outlooks’s calendar. Create notes in Evernote directly from emails. Now, finally, you can orchestrate your to-do lists, notes and project management in the same app.

4. Make your calendars more interesting

Head to settings, where you’ll find the aptly named interesting Calendars feature. There, you can add prebuilt calendars for your favorite sports teams and television shows. Never miss another Panthers game! 

5. Tell everyone when you’re available and when you are not

Trying to find a good time to meet ?

Outlook makes it easy. When composing an email, tap the calendar icon that appears above your keyboard to bring up your calendar. Tap any free time slots and Outlook will format a tidy list for you and insert it into your email. 

When you hear back, tap the same icon and Convert to Event to make an event with everyone included in the email. 

6. Customize your notifications

Want to hear a chirp sound whenever you get a work email, and a Glossy sound when someone sends an update to your Calendar? With Outlook, you have full control over your notifications- so you know what every ping means before you even glance at your screen
