Major New Outlook for Mac Version Is Rolling Out Soon

For those of you who use Outlook for Mac Desktop and have Office 365 subscriptions, a new version is coming soon.

The new version moves the Search box up to the top and adds more search filters, like what is happening in Windows desktop Outlook.

My Day is now a pane on the right, sort of like the To-Do Bar in Windows.

And apparently it’s got some major underlying architecture changes in that “it is powered by the Microsoft Cloud and connects using Microsoft sync technology.” The article linked below says it is “Built on the same Microsoft sync technology utilized by Outlook for iOS and Android and Windows Mail” and as a result “the new Outlook for Mac is faster and more reliable.”

Lot’s of other changes described in article below.

I haven’t seen it yet, but it is written up here:

    The current 2016 version does not allow for tasks to be shown on the right. I’ve tried several options but can’t get it to appear. I wonder if My Day will show the tasks. If not, I might have to go with your suggestion to use Toodledo.
