Microsoft Teams and Outlook to Improve Remote Work with New Features


It looks as if remote work is here to stay for countless organizations. If your business is among those whose telecommuting operations are still intact, Microsoft has your operations in mind with several new features scheduled for release in 2022. Microsoft Teams and Outlook to improve remote work with new features.

Microsoft Outlook’s Working Hours feature has been redesigned. This feature will now allow employees to include their work schedule specifics directly in their calendar. This will give other employees in the organization an idea of when and where their colleagues will be working. The aim for Working Hours is to make it easier to schedule meetings with employees who may be working remotely exclusively or as part of a flexible, hybrid plan.  

Also, the new RSVP feature will allow employees to specify whether they will attend a meeting in person or online. Through the feature, meeting planners can prepare by booking a suitable room with videoconferencing resources and other features necessary to conduct their conferences accordingly.  

The Work Hours and RSVP features will be available in Microsoft Outlook in early 2022.  

Microsoft also is rolling out new features that will make remote employees’ experience better when participating in meetings, specifically during presentations. The company is launching Cameo, a new PowerPoint feature that integrates the Microsoft Teams camera feed into your presentation, allowing the presenter to include themselves in the slides and customizing where and how they appear. Cameo will also roll out early next year.
