Office 365 makes improvements to help productivity

Increase your productivity with new enhancements to Office 365, including a “save for later” feature for important files, a “focus time” status alert for colleagues, and a quick look at your day ahead.

Save for Later in OneDrive and SharePoint

Need to review a file but don’t have time right now? Microsoft will be adding a bookmark feature to OneDrive and SharePoint called “Save for Later.” With this feature you can flag files, which will be stored for as links in a convenient menu folder so you can quickly access them later when you have more time.

This feature will be available by the end of September.

Focus Time Status in Teams

Let your colleagues know you are working on a project — and avoid interruptions from notifications — with a new status in Teams called “Focusing.” Notifications will be suppressed during the focus period based on their priority access settings. This is a great alternative to Do Not Disturb, letting other users know you a working hard on something important. This feature will be available by the end of September.

Outlook on the Web – My Day

When using the Outlook web client, you will have a new shortcut in the top right corner that gives a quick view of the activities of the day.

This feature is being rolled out gradually over the next few months and is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.

When available these features can be found in their respective applications at office.com.
