September 14, 2018 Version 1810 (build 10904.20005)
|Outlook||Stop seeing reminders for past events in Outlook
Now, you can set your calendar to automatically dismiss reminders for events after they’ve ended. When you’ve been away from your desk for a few hours, or when you’ve been out of the office for a week, the Reminders dialog in Outlook shows lots of old meetings that happened in the past. This new option lets you keep the Reminders dialog clear of meetings in the past that you no longer need to be reminded about. (Some users like to keep old meeting in their Reminders dialog to remember to send notes or take other follow-up actions, so we’ve made this an option to continue supporting that workflow.)
Scenarios to try
Use Reminders as usual; observe whether the reduction of noise in the Reminders dialog has any impact on your workflow or focus.
|Access||Black and Dark Gray themes support
There are now four Office themes that you can apply to Access: Colorful, Dark Gray, Black, and White. To access these themes, go to File > Account, and then click the drop down menu next to Office Theme.
