Office 2010 technical preview

I have been using Office 2010 technical preview for a few days now and its been good so far. I have been primarily using Word and Outlook. Microsoft has introduced quite a few new features with this version. I tried to summarize few of them here, but there might be many more features which I am not aware of.

  • Conversations (similar to gmail threaded conversations)
  • Quick Steps, which groups frequently used actions and also enables one to create a customized action
  • Cleanup tool, which is used to remove any redundant messages in a thread
  • Many different types of views have been introduced. Email can be grouped by Date, Conversation, To and many more...
  • MailTips - To prevent common faux pas scenarios
  • Integrated screen capture tool (similar to snip tool in vista)
  • Better Photo editing capabilities
Outlook has been very stable, but the zoom tool does not function properly. Word cannot open/edit documents in SharePoint (this is really painful but heh, this is technical preview - so stop complaining). I guess that's all I have for today and will post later as I continue using this tool.
