Outlook for Windows Will Finally get a Cloud Roaming Option this Month
Roaming profiles in Outlook for Windows isn’t exactly new and the functionality has been around for some time. But up until now, it was not offered through the Microsoft 365 cloud; that’s about to change.
Microsoft has started rolling out a feature that will allow users to save some settings to their cloud profile. The rollout will start with Microsoft 365 Monthly Channel and the completion is targeted for late June.
When this feature rolls out, the following list of settings will roam across other computers running Outlook for Windows that are logged in to the same Office account.
- Ease of Access
While this feature is not going to magically fix all your woes while using Outlook for Windows, having a cloud roaming option is going to make life a bit easier for setting up a new machine or jumping between devices.
If you want to enable the feature, follow these steps in Outlook:
Select File > Options.
- Under Outlook Options, select General.
- Check the box Store my Outlook settings in the cloud.
- Select OK.
When this feature does fully roll out in a couple of weeks, it will be enabled by default. If you want to turn this functionality off for your users, you will need to disable roaming settings in Outlook group policy template.
When you couple this feature with the ability to sync signatures across machines, Outlook is finally, but slowly, moving into the modern era with the features users expect.
