Improved Calendar and sign-in experiences for Outlook on the web announced by Microsoft.
Simplifying your sign-in to Outlook on the web
We’ve heard your feedback that you want an easier way to find where to sign in to Outlook, so we’re making it easier for Office 365 users to sign in to Outlook on the web by offering more options.
When Outlook detects it’s not an Office 365 account instead of an MSA, it will redirect them to their organization’s sign in page, pre-populate the email address they entered, and follow their current sign in process.
Improved meeting response
We are updating how Outlook handles meeting responses when a user chooses to not send a response to the meeting organizer. With this update, when a user responds to a meeting invite and chooses to not send a response or to not notify the organizer, Outlook will update the user’s response in invitee list but won’t send an email to the organizer.
If you are using the classic version of Outlook on the web, select “Do not send a response” to let the organizer know your response but to avoid sending an email to them.
If you are using the early version of the new Outlook on the web, switch the “Notify organizer” toggle off. The organizer’s attendee list will be updated, but no email will be sent.
Note: the improved meeting response only applies when both the organizer and the invitee are Office 365 users. If you select “Do not send a response” or switch off the “Notify organizer” when responding to a non-Office 365 meeting organizer, Outlook won’t update them.
Use Teams for online meetings
As we modernize our infrastructure, we aim to give you the power of the best of Office. With that in mind we have updated the online meeting feature in the new Outlook on the web to use Teams as the default online meeting tool. This update will only be available in the new Outlook on the web if your organization has enabled Teams. If your organization is not enabled for Teams, you will continue to see the option to add Skype for Business.
