March 25, 2013 1 Comment

The Mail, Calendar and People apps on Windows 8 and Windows RT are getting updated tomorrow to bring much needed improvements.

Mail App:

  • Filter emails by read and unread
  • organize my email into folders
  • create and delete folders
  • flag important emails

  • manage draft email messages
  • add, edit, and delete hyperlinks and edit bulleted or numbered lists more easily in email messages
  • search for email on the server
  • pull contacts from a Microsoft Exchange global address list

Calendar App:

  • easier to read

  •  new “Work week” view
  • use of scheduling assistant for business accounts (Microsoft Exchange)
  • forward meeting invitations
  • send email to all meeting attendees
  • more recurrence options

People App:

  • navigate the People app more easily by swiping from the top (or right-clicking) to bring up the app commands
  • new navigation at the top that allows you to quickly move between your profile
  • post to your friends’ Facebook wall

  • quickly filter your “What’s new” feed by social network.

 

I am very excited about the new updates for these apps as each will help me get more use out of them (especially the Mail App).
