Recent Microsoft Outlook Online Software Change: A Much Better To-Do Tasks Pane

If you use Outlook Online in a web browser, and your Exchange server is hosted at Microsoft, then you might see that an important change has been made in the last few weeks:  the optional To-Do Tasks Pane has been greatly improved.

First of all, not all Outlook Online users have access to that To-Do Tasks pane. But if you do, here are the changes made in the last few weeks:

  • That pane can now be swapped for a Calendar view.
  • You can now edit nearly all the task detail settings right in that pane. You no longer must launch a separate browser tab to edit most task details.
  • There is a new more generalized icon to open that pane.

All this is demonstrated in a new update I just made to Lesson 6 of my Microsoft To-Do video course at: to-do-videos.com. Paid users go take a look (advance to the 5:30 minute point).

    This article was written by the product team that created Microsoft Outlook for the best possible reason — our customers asked. Outlook is designed to be used by a wide audience with many work needs and styles. Although there’s no one “right way,” there are a few ways of working in the program that we know to be easier than others. We hope that by being aware of the best practices, you will have the best experience possible using Outlook.
