Outlook on the web has a further simplified and cleaner UI to help users work more efficiently, starting with the new Action bar available across Mail, Calendar, People and Tasks:

The action toolbar provides quick access to the most common commands, such as searching, composing a new email, clearing the folder, replying, deleting or performing other actions on the message.

We can assign categories to emails:

Image

Mark emails as read, clear flags, pin them (which we will shortly look at), create rules, and more:

Image

Pin - users can now pin any email in their inbox to have it highlighted in yellow and kept at the top of the inbox folder. Pins are a good way to keep important messages handy and prevent them from getting buried in between other emails.

Sweep provides a simple set of actions to manage emails from specific senders. It helps managing reoccurring messages like newsletters and other email received on a regular basis. With Sweep, users can choose to keep messages from a specific sender for a specified number of days, only keep the latest message, or delete all messages from the sender:

Archive – a one-click archiving allows users to quickly move messages out of the inbox to a folder of their choice. In this case, as I haven’t configured an archive folder yet, it asks me to either create one or select an existing folder as my archiving folder:

Image

Undo – there is now a dedicated Undo button so users can quickly undo unintended actions with a single click:

Calendar

We can easily create a quick appointment simply by selecting a calendar section:

Image

Another improvement is around reminders. We can now create email reminders for any calendar event. We can specify the recipient list, include a quick message, and set the day and time we want the email reminder to be sent.

Image

Definitely a great way of keeping everyone updated on important events in case they did not set a reminder themselves.

Image

 

Calendar now supports "charms", icons that we can apply to calendar items as a visual cue to help us quickly identify specific events or types of events. For example, we can add an airplane charm to an upcoming flight, or a knife and fork for a business dinner. There are a number of charms to choose from:

Image
 

Once added each charm appears in the lower right corner of the calendar event (only one charm per event is supported):
