the new outlook calendar

 

 

The world is about to be introduced to the much improved Outlook.com Calendar. Exciting new changes have been made, and they are sure to make life much easier. Here are some new features that you can look forward to:

Faster than before
Time is money, and, especially in the business world, users are always looking for the quickest way to get things done. Microsoft has approached this challenge head-on with their latest developments. Instead of all the long processes of the past, the new Outlook.com Calendar has a more streamlined approach that fits in perfectly with the rest of the apps in this family. Users will be able to add and edit events with just one click as well as navigate to a specific date without opening a new page.

Sync to all your devices
It’s not just important to have your calendar available on your computer. These days, users need to be able to access it from other devices, such as smartphones and tablets. Using ActiveSync, you can do just that!

Connect your calendar to other services
Instead of having to manually enter all your Facebook friends’ birthdays into your calendar, for example, users can now link services like Facebook to their calendar so that important information and dates are automatically transferred. Other services that can connect to your calendar include Skype and LinkedIn.

Security
By default, the new Outlook.com Calendar is private. This is essential for protecting your privacy. However, should you need to share your calendar with somebody, this can be done very easily using the share button. You can also choose whether or not to give that person the ability to add, edit, and delete events.
