Microsoft has been experimenting and changing the interface and features in its new office tools since few months. And now it has updated some Outlook tools to help users cleaning their inboxes. Microsoft has upgraded the methods of categorizing and searching for messages along with adding improvements to its Sweep to delete feature for inbox.
Sweep allows users to clear their in-boxes with a bulk delete function. Now it will be easier to use with a simpler interface requiring fewer clicks.
Schackwitz added “One of the most commonly-searched criteria is for people, so we now show your contact names and pictures together when you’re looking for them. Searching for a contact will find all e-mail from any e-mail address they have, so you don’t have to remember whether that e-mail came from their personal address or their work address.”
This updates include also include more keyboard shortcuts and improvements to video and chat capabilities for Skype, Facebook, Google, Twitter, LinkedIn and other such platforms— will roll out to users in the next few weeks.
