Using the My Day feature on Outlook in the browser

Microsoft’s been doing a good job in getting the web-based Outlook client to feature-parity with the Outlook client. One of the latest additions to web-based Outlook is the My Day feature, which easily allows you to see your to-do and calendar in the main email page. Here’s how it works…

When you’re in Outlook, click on the My Day icon in the upper-right corner (it looks like a calendar and checkmark):

That displays a panel on the right side of your page which shows your Calendar entries for the day:

This is yet another reason why I might consider going completely web-based in Outlook sometime this year…
