Wait it out. Microsoft announced new cloud syncing capabilities for Outlook for Windows earlier this year, with the original plan to add these in sometimes in June.
But it just so happened that the software titan was forced to delay it.
Now we know why.
The company has posted a new update in the Microsoft 365 Admin Center that this feature will take flight in September. The company talked about how this decision was based on early feedback it received from users, with led to some additional changes to the code to enable cloud roaming.
“Based on learnings from our early rings, we have made the decision to make additional changes to the code before we proceed with the rollout. We expect to roll this out to the Monthly Channel, Production, in late September (previously late June).”
The new cloud syncing feature basically delivers roaming profiles to the email client that should let it sync up a wide variety of settings in the cloud. This will enable a more consistent experience for users when they access Outlook for Windows on any of their Windows PCs.
Expect to synchronize details like Calendar, Ease of Access, General and Advanced settings, Mail, People, Search, as well as Tasks.
Redmond has also confirmed that this new option will be turned on by default. What this means is that it will be up to the Office 365 admins to disable this feature for all Microsoft users in their organization if they so desire.
