In this article, we will go through a few ‘quick wins’ which are there to make life much, much easier when using Microsoft Outlook 2013.
Sometimes, when you’re in the Outlook email tab and want to create a calendar appointment, it can be a pain having to switch the view. However, there is a quick and easy short cut to make life easier.
To do this, simply right click on the Office 2013 quick launch item in the task bar to reveal a list of quick tasks. From here you can create a new email, appointment, meeting, contact or task!!
What you need to do is to create a new email and then type in the text which you use on a regular basis. Select the text by highlighting it and then in the horizontal bar at the top of the new email, select ‘insert’. In this new menu you will see a button called ‘Quick Parts’, click it and then select ‘save selection to quick part gallery’.
Once this is done, every time you start typing the same text, Outlook will suggest auto completing it and then it will insert the entire section into your email for you.
To do this, simply compose your new email as usual and then select the ‘options’ tab at the top. In the menu bar you will then see a button called ‘delay delivery’. In here you have the option to ‘do not deliver before’ where you can specify a date and time. Once you click send, the message will not go until the date and time you have specified.
To set this up, in Outlook click on ‘File’ at the top left, then ‘account settings’, and the ‘social network accounts’, and you will then have a series of tick boxes which when ticked, will allow you to connect the selected account, once you have entered your associated user name and password.
So, that it for now. There are many, many more excellent hints and tips which we may cover in future articles but for now, have a play around and hopefully this article will make your use of Outlook a little easier, and save you some valuable time.
