Warning – Major changes that cause issues for many businesses with The New Outlook needed for Microsoft Copilot

In the realm of workplace innovation, Microsoft Copilot and the New Outlook introduce ground-breaking features. However, a noteworthy challenge has surfaced, requiring careful attention. Copilot functionality is exclusive to the New Outlook; therefore, users must upgrade from the standard Outlook version to benefit from this advanced tool. Locate the toggle option in the top right-hand corner of Outlook to make the transition seamlessly.

For businesses utilising shared email accounts alongside their primary accounts, Microsoft has implemented a modification: you cant add a shared inbox to your favourites section in the New Outlook. This alteration poses potential disruptions to the convenience and accessibility of shared mailbox content, particularly for users who heavily rely on this feature. Such a limitation may be considered a critical factor for decision-makers within organisations. In fact, it will probably be a deal breaker for most. 

The other major issue is: You cant move emails between email accounts. Again, people using shared accounts may be used to dragging an email to someone else’s inbox. You cant do this in the New Outlook. 

This advisory aims to provide professional insight into the current challenge and emphasises the importance of strategic planning for organisations relying on shared mailbox functionalities in their daily operations.
