Creating a contact in Outlook 2016 can save you time when sending an email message and using Skype for Business. Once you’ve entered a name as a contact, you can add business or personal information such as phone numbers and addresses. In this 2-hour short course you will learn how to work in the People window to add a new contact (manually and from a received email message); change contacts view; use color categories to organize your contacts; search for a contact; and print a contacts list. We will also look at contact groups (email distribution lists).


The Tasks features of Outlook 2016 help you create lists of task-related items. We will look at the different views in the Task window; we will add tasks (including recurring tasks); attach items to a task; assign and track a task.



Prerequisite: Completion of Outlook 2016 Email Fundamentals or equivalent knowledge.  A Microsoft Exchange account is required.
Course Length:  2 hours
