Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Use conditional formatting to highlight important messages, part of Outlook 2016: Efficient Email Management.
- [Voiceover] Another way I can make messages stand out…is to use conditional formatting.…In some prior versions of Outlook…you had the choice to organize by color.…If you wonder where that feature's gone,…it's now called conditional formatting…and it's in the Advanced View setting.…So if we go back to View,…and choose a view, right now I'm using single,…and we then Manage Views,…choose the single view and go to modify,…we've been here before,…right here, conditional formatting.…
And these are the conditional formatting rules…that are being used for this view.…A lot of conditional formatting already build in,…notice, unread messages have an…11 point bold font and they're blue.…Unread group headers, if there's a…whole group I haven't looked at, that will be bold.…Submitted, but not sent, italicized.…You'll see this in the outbox.…Expired email, with a line through it.…Overdue email, red.…
Messages that are from other folders…shown in a conversation, italicized, light.…Site mailbox documents pending upload, that same color.…
