Multiple new features are coming to Outlook on the web. These features are currently rolling out.
When these features roll out to your organization, you’ll be able to:
– Sign into Outlook on the web at www.outlook.com: People with an Office 365 account that use Outlook on the web can now sign-in to their work/school accounts using https://www.outlook.com/. Sign in via www.outlook.com is not available for GCC, GCC High, Blackforest, or Gallatin sovereign cloud organizations.
– Use improved response tracking: Microsoft has improved how Outlook handles meeting responses. Previously, when you selected “Don’t send response” or turned off the “Notify organizer” toggle, Outlook wouldn’t register your response to the meeting and the organizer wouldn’t know your response. With this change, when you select “Don’t send response” or turn off the “Notify organizer” toggle, Outlook won’t email your response to the organizer but will update the meeting invite with your response. The meeting organizer and invitee both have to be in Office 365 for improved response tracking to work.
– Use Teams for online meetings: After this change takes place, if your organization has enabled Microsoft Teams, the new Outlook on the web will use Teams as the default online meeting tool instead of Skype for Business. If your organization hasn’t enabled Teams, the new Outlook on the web will continue to use Skype for Business. This update will only show in the new Outlook on the web and not in the classic experience.
These features have begun gradually rolling out, and Microsoft anticipates rollout completion in January 2019.
