Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Use Instant Search to find a message, part of Outlook 2016: Efficient Email Management.
- [Voiceover] Imagine for a moment,…that you need to find an important message…that's in your Inbox, or in one of the Folders.…Remember, that the average knowledge worker…in the United States…spends 90 minutes every week, searching for stuff.…And that includes time spent searching for email messages…that are somewhere in Outlook, somewhere in your Inbox.…Maybe you remember who sent the message.…That makes it easy.…Or, perhaps you can't remember who it came from,…but you remember a word or some phrases…that are in the message.…
