Tips and Tricks: Outlook 2016 (Windows + Mac) @mentions

@Mentions – I spend a lot of time in email.  In Outlook 2016 you can now @mention someone to add them to the distribution of a meeting or email!  I met someone at Toastmasters and Sam and I are going to get together to talk.  I need to respond to the sender but add Sam – it’s as easy as typing a name – if there is more than one option, you see the choices:

at-mention-2

Adding someone to an email is easy!  Just type the @ symbol and the contact name!

at-mention

If you want you can delete the contact’s last name.  If you delete the @ and contact, they are removed from the email!

at-mention-3

By adding @mention to the calendar invite adds attendees to the meeting automatically!
