Why you should use Microsoft Outlook on your mobile device
In this day and age you will rarely see people using one device to access their email and messages. Most business employees and department heads will most likely have an email app on your phone for managing your inbox on-the-go. Microsoft Outlook can be helpful and extremely useful in a variety of ways, especially on your mobile device.
Signing Into Outlook’s App
While Outlook naturally works great with Office 365 accounts, you can also use it to manage personal Outlook, Gmail, and Yahoo email accounts. Enter your email address, then your password. If you have two-factor authentication enabled, you’ll need to enter a code from your secondary authentication method to complete sign-in. (If you don’t have 2FA enabled, please make sure to set it up ASAP.)
Using the Outlook App
Similar to Outlook on the desktop, Outlook’s phone app is divided into three tabs along the bottom. You’ll see Mail, Search, and Calendar. As many of you will already know, you’re able to setup your outlook folders and page however you’d like. The mobile app with outlook allows even more customization to your work flow and emails in general. Microsoft Outlook app allows for your calendar, email, contacts, and more to all be stored and synced within the app. It allows for easy and efficient on the go access for a variety of different tasks to be done.
Microsoft Outlook’s App is User Friendly
This mobile app is extremely user friendly, especially if you’re not very tech savvy. It allows for easy, one touch editing and integration throughout the whole app. That’s all you need to use the Outlook app for Android or iPhone. It’s a straightforward app, allowing you to access your email and calendar without bogging anything down. It works best when used with an Office 365 or other Microsoft email account, but it’s worth a try for other providers too.
