Course Description

Microsoft Outlook 2019 is the latest version of a powerful email client that lets you not only manage email messages, but schedule meetings and tasks, collaborate with other coworkers, and work with a calendar of scheduled events that send alerts for upcoming items. What makes Outlook different from many other email clients is that it is an entire collaboration and scheduling tool mainly used within corporations that have Microsoft environments with Exchange server.

This course focuses on teaching new users to Outlook the many ways that they can take advantage of using Microsoft's email client software. First, it takes a look at the basic ways Outlook can be used to create email and format it according to certain standards. With Outlook, rich formatting can be used including HTML. This course covers creating email with images, graphs and stylized text so that your emails are different from the other plain text messages that most users receive.

Then we work with collaboration features of Outlook. We cover features such as the calendar, scheduling tasks and sharing them with other coworkers. With Outlook, you can also automate incoming and outgoing email using rules, which we cover to help you with managing and organizing your inbox.

The final part of this course explains the basics of Microsoft's proprietary VBA language. This language lets advanced users automate functions in Outlook but also create small applications within the Office products. Overall, this course takes you from the very basics of Outlook to more advanced features so that you can get the most out of your email experience.
