Microsoft Outlook receives emails that update after they are sent


After being announced at Microsoft Ignite (opens in a new tab) last year Loop components are now deployed in Microsoft Outlook (opens in a new tab).

For those who don’t know, Microsoft Loop (opens in a new tab) is a new app that combines a powerful and flexible canvas with portable components that move freely and stay in sync across the software giant’s apps. It is made up of three elements in the form of Loop Components, Loop Pages, and Loop Workspaces.

While Loop Pages are flexible canvases where users can organize all of their Loop components in one place and Loop Workspaces are shared spaces that allow teams to see and consolidate everything important for a project. , Loop components are an evolution of Fluid components. (opens in a new tab) that help users collaborate and get things done in chats, emails, meetings, and documents.

Now, Microsoft Outlook users will be able to take advantage of the power of Loop components when using the corporate email service. (opens in a new tab).

Loop components in Outlook

According to a new position (opens in a new tab) in Microsoft 365 (opens in a new tab) roadmap, Loop components are now deployed in Microsoft Outlook and these live interactive objects can be embedded in email messages to provide real-time collaboration.

In a supporting document (opens in a new tab)Microsoft is highlighting several of its Loop components that users can add to emails in Outlook or even messages in Microsoft Teams (opens in a new tab). These include bulleted lists, checklists, numbered lists, paragraphs, tables, to-do lists and more.

One of the advantages of Loop components is that they are automatically saved to OneDrive. (opens in a new tab) so you can easily find and reuse them later.

With the addition of Loop components in Outlook, emails will become much smoother since they can even update after being sent. Say you add a follow-up to-do list to an email, collaborators can check off items as they complete them, and any changes made to the Loop component will be reflected in the email. origin. This way, users don’t have to waste time emailing each other once a task is complete.

We’ll likely hear more from Microsoft about the Loop components once Microsoft 365 users have the chance to test them out for themselves.
