Outlook – Quick Steps

Quick Steps are one-click buttons which can perform multiple actions at once.  For example with one click an email conversation can be filed away and marked as read or one click can create a new email to a team.

Default Quick Step templates are already set up.  These offer easy options to move and file messages or create emails to team members.  Most templates require customisation the first time they are selected.
