Microsoft Office - Outlook 2007
Posted on April 27, 2007 in
I recently purchased Microsoft Outlook 2007 for use at home. Although there have been a lot of negative comments about its poor performance (which I noticed in the Beta version) that didn’t deter me from going ahead with the purchase since I wanted it mainly for it’s enhanced search capability, information organisation features, calendar publishing ability and integration with Microsoft OneNote 2007 and Tablet PC support.
Outlook comes in a sleak, well designed box with a shiny CD and I’m pleased to say I didn’t have many problems with the install.
The cover of the box states that Outlook allows you to Communicate with anyone and organise your information, all in one place. The back of the box highlights the following features of Outlook:
- Find what you need quickly - Locate any message or Outlook information using new Instant Search - even see results as you type
- View daily priorities in one place - The new to do bar brings together tasks, appointments and e-mail flagged for follow up
- Create and Share Personalised calendars - Share and update calendars for work, family or personal schedules, such as travel or team sports
Occassionally, I’ll write an e-mail using the pen of my Tablet PC. Sadly, my hand writing has deteriorated a lot since I started using computers and I can actually type a lot quicker than I can write. Anyhow, the screen shot below will give you an idea of how you can use Outlook 2007 with a Tablet PC.
The Microsoft web site has the following to say about the new features in Outlook 2007
Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 provides you with a comprehensive time and information manager. Using new features such as Instant Search and the To-Do Bar, you can organize and instantly locate the information that you need. New calendar sharing capabilities, Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 technology, and improved access to Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 information enable you to safely share data that is stored in Office Outlook 2007 with coworkers, friends, and family, no matter where those people are located. Office Outlook 2007 makes it easier for you to prioritize and control your time, allowing you to focus on the things that matter most.
