Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Add a column to a view, part of Outlook 2016: Efficient Email Management.
- [Voiceover] By default, almost every Outlook view…has columns of information…that show you who sent a message,…what the subject is,…when the message was received,…how large it is…and has a place where you can assign categories…and a flag status.…It also has a place for icons…that show you for example…whether there's an attachment…or if a message has high importance.…So if I switch from one view to another,…I'm choosing between the arrangement…of stock pieces of information…that are already displayed here,…size, subject, date and so on.…
I might however want to show…some information that's not already…in one of those columns.…For example, I might want to see…if someone was copied on a message,…who it was addressed to.…If I manage multiple mailboxes,…I might want to know not just the sender…but the recipient.…There are columns for all of these things…and if I wish to add a column,…I simply click on the View tab…and whatever view I want to add the column to…and click the Add Columns button here.…The Add Columns button…
