New Features Coming to Office 365 Outlook Web App

Microsoft revealed more Outlook Web App features that will be added in the coming months in Office 365.

Clutter is a new feature will attempt to learn which emails are important to a user based on patterns of reading and replying.  This feature has to be turned on and as a result the inbox of this user now has been reduced to just the important emails. Any messages deemed unimportant have been moved to the “clutter” footer at the bottom which can be expanded so that the user can quickly skim over those messages to see if any might need attention, if not, they can be deleted at once.

Another feature in Outlook Web Apps will improve document collaboration.  Email attachments can now be offered as a link to a file stored in OneDrive for Business. Any Word, Excel or PowerPoint file sent via email can be opened via the free Office Online app. The document can be edited and then sent back in an email reply.

There will also be Groups features for Yammer that will be put into Office 365 for business users.  Some of those features were previously revealed at the recent SharePoint Conference.  Also, an Office Web App port for Android smartphones is in the works which will join the previously released apps for iPhone and iPad.
