Microsoft has added new features to Outlook on Windows, Mac, web, and mobile devices. The software giant says that the changes are meant to help users manage their time and keep important stuff up front where it is easy to find. There are new features coming to Outlook for iOS and Android devices soon to help connect users to people, apps, and tech that improve productivity in the business environment.
Among the changes are bill pay reminders in Outlook Calendar with the addition of bill payments to events that the calendar already tracks for users like travel reservations and package deliveries. Outlook can identify the bills you receive via email and then give a summary at the top of the message allowing you to add a bill reminder directly to the calendar. Email reminders will be sent two days before the bill due date to allow you to pay your bills on time. That feature is only offered on Outlook.com.
Outlook can also now suggest event locations and meeting rooms for users. When you start typing, meeting locations will be suggested automatically with available conference rooms and frequently used locations like “my office” available to choose, the meeting locations will be offered based on where the user is. That feature is available in Outlook for iOS.
