Message Summary

Updated July 19, 2022: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

The new experience for accessing Mail, Calendar, People, and other Outlook apps that is being previewed behind the Coming Soon option is becoming the default experience.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 88848

When this will happen:

We will begin rollout in mid-August (previously mid-July) and complete rollout by late September.

How this will affect your organization:

We’ve changed how you access Email, Calendar, Tasks, and other main functions in Outlook. This change has been behind the Coming Soon toggle in the top right of Outlook for Windows. This update is going to become the default experience in the coming weeks. You can customize this area with icons for apps, such as To Do, Yammer Communities, and Bookings, and open them directly from Outlook’s main canvas.

What you need to do to prepare:

You may want to notify your org of this update as we encourage users to try the experience soon through the Coming Soon pane, before it becomes the default experience.
