Just a quick note: Office 365 means that you must have a subscription to the Microsoft Office 365. It will not work if you only have an older version of the Outlook application downloaded. You must have an online login to the Office 365 platform.
To set up: go to the top right hand corner and select your name, on the drop down menu select your settings, then scroll down and choose Connect to Office 365 or Connect to Gmail.
The system will then direct you to login to your Office 365 or Gmail account to grant permissions. Once completed you’ll be all set.
On the screen above you can also set up your notification preferences to receive email alerts when someone places a new activity or file in your name or @mentions you in a comment. All you need to do is choose your preferences and hit update.
