Clutter is coming to Office 365

Pattern with email and calendar icons

“Clutter is the physical manifestation of unmade decisions fueled by procrastination” – Christina Scalise, author of “Organize Your Life and More”

Do you have lots of unread email in your mailbox? Messages that you like or need to keep, but don’t necessarily need or have time to read? If you are like me, you have too many of these types of messages. As a solution to unwieldy email inboxes, Microsoft introduced a new service for Office 365 this week. It is appropriately named “Clutter.”

Clutter is similar to how Outlook/Hotmail and Gmail create focused, primary inboxes by moving other less important email to a secondary folder/view. Clutter lets you prioritize your daily attention on the more important emails. The following blog notes and video will give you more specific details on the service:

Since this is a newly-enabled service, and could cause some confusion on its use, the Messaging Team has decided to administratively disable it on existing Office 365 mailboxes. However, you have the ability to enable it on your own if you wish. As we go forward, it will be automatically enabled on new O365 accounts. Users do have the ability to turn it off on their own as well.

So check out the above blog and video, read the knowledge articles and then if you are interested, enable the service and try it out.
