Personalise Your Mobile Microsoft Outlook App With These Tips

Since Microsoft released the Outlook app for phones and tablets in 2015, it has garnered over 100 million downloads, if you use this app on your mobile, you may find the tips in this article helpful.


By default, most apps are designed with settings that the developers believe many people would find useful. However, since geographical locations differ, you may have to change your settings to fit your place.


More importantly, people may use an app such as the mobile Microsoft Outlook for different purposes. While an employee may use it to keep updated with company mails; a freelancer may need it to keep up with appointments.


To get the best out of the Outlook app, check out some of the most important Settings tips you should know about below. Tap on the Outlook icon on the top left of your screen to open the several personalisation options.
