Once turned on, the Mail, Calendar, People, Tasks and other modules will move from the bottom of the folder pane to the left side of the folder pane in Outlook for Windows. This new user experience will also provide quick access to additional Microsoft 365 applications such as To Do, Yammer, Bookings, Org Explorer, and open them directly from Outlook’s main canvas. Users will be able to customize which apps show in this location by pinning their favorite apps.
