So you’ve decided to take the plunge and install Office 2016 Technical Preview.
For the most part many things look the same (except Skype for Business which is a quite different skin around Lync).
As a person who lives in Outlook I was momentarily paralysed with fear when I lost some of the buttons I use most frequently:
- Pop out draft responses into a separate window
- Accept/decline meeting responses
While I contemplated balling myself up in a corner and rocking, or taking to social media to ask Microsoft why they dared changing functionality that wasn’t to my liking – instead I just went with the “Oh well, something has changed and I don’t have time to figure it out. It’s frustrating but I’ll live.”
After a quick internal discussion on Yammer with one of my colleagues who had also found the same we decided to do some quick testing.
What you’ll see on the right side of Outlook is these options based on what you’re currently doing:
|Reading an email||Reviewing a meeting invitation||Replying to an email|
