Microsoft has cleaned up the user interface on its Office 365 browser-based email service Outlook, because we’re all superficial and like looking at pretty things. Oh, and some new tools have been added.
The web version of Office 365 for business customers is about to get a revamp, with a persistent notifications button to highlight new emails, likes and other group communications.
Microsoft has been testing Office 365’s Clutter tool, which aims to highlight important messages in your inbox and move stuff you don’t need to worry about immediately into folders, since late 2014. Apparently it’s working well enough that from next month, it will be switched on for all Office 365 accounts by default.
Office 365 offers a ‘First Release’ option that allows organisations to opt in for new products and test versions, but the original version was something of an “all or nothing” affair. Microsoft has now tweaked First Release so you can set it only to roll out updates to individuals.
Microsoft began rolling out Office Delve last September, but the contextual search and notification tool for Office users remains a work in progress. The newest additions to the platform are iOS and Android clients, along with enhanced people-based search tools.
