Microsoft Outlook offers the best email experience for all mobile devices.It allows you to check email accounts, calendars, contacts and files without switching between different applications. New and improved app features like Tap for Outlook let you find and use relevant content from your assignments. You don’t have to leave a document or email to get the job done. Since this is a new feature that we never discovered, let’s see how to use this feature to reuse content.
Find and insert content using Tap for Outlook
To insert and reuse content using Tap in Outlook, open the Outlook app. Go to the Home tab and in New Group select New Email.
A new message box will appear instantly. Compose your email. Now, if you want to insert any content that you or your team previously used in your email, select the Insert tab, select Document Element .
Touch in Outlook initiates searches and recommends personalized content from Word, Excel, and PowerPoint and displays them below the touch bar. After that, simply select the desired result in the touch bar and click the Add image / picture (+) button to insert and reuse the content in your email.
If you want to see specific content , enter a keyword in the search box for the content you’re looking for and press Enter. The Tap panel will return with the results related to your search and start displaying them from office applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint).
A small legend will appear at the bottom of each document in the Click panel . In fact, it represents the number of objects, pictures, SmartArts, tables, charts, or slides present in each document.
Here, click three dots to do one of the following:
- Open in Application– Opens the selected document in an application such as PowerPoint, Excel, and Word.
- View all items. This action displays all content that can be reused in the selected document in the Touch panel.
You can select any result in the touch bar to view the content in detail for reuse in your working document.
Finally, select (+) Add a picture / picture to any smart object, object, image, graph, chart, table or slide to add it to your email.
