Daylite for Outlook Officially Released!

Product Updates / May 2, 2024 / Daylite Team

If you’re like many small businesses, your email inbox often threatens to become a bloated mess. Achieving “inbox zero” is a complete fantasy, and you worry about losing track of important messages and tasks that push your business forward.

Fortunately, Daylite is making all of this much easier to manage. We’re excited to officially release Daylite for Outlook! Outlook for Mac users can add emails to Daylite, create tasks and appointments, and capture contacts, projects or sales opportunities directly from their inbox, so you can get back to focusing on what matters most to your business.

Previously this capability was only available in Daylite Mail Assistant for Apple Mail, and we are excited to provide our Daylite community with the additional option of using Outlook.

Get More from Your Outlook Inbox

Coming on the heels of the beta release last month, this new integration allows Outlook for Mac users to easily manage, reference and act on emails related to Daylite Contacts, Projects, and Opportunities.

Learn How to Install Daylite for Outlook

Similar to how our popular integration with Apple Mail works, Daylite for Outlook ensures you always have up-to-date information in Daylite to work efficiently and effectively.

The Daylite add-in simply opens as a side panel in Outlook for Mac, and detects current Daylite Contacts and suggests related Projects or Opportunities. You can also search for items you want to link to the email, add new contacts to Daylite, or create tasks and appointments. Simply click “Add to Daylite” and the email is copied into Daylite and linked to the relevant Contact, Project or Opportunity, and the same process works when composing an outgoing email.

Here are three big ways Daylite for Outlook helps you:

  1. Capture Leads, Projects and Sales Opportunities – When a new contact, project or potential deal lands in your Outlook inbox, you can now quickly add them to Daylite with just a few clicks, so the email is linked to all the relevant information.
  2. Action Email with Tasks and Appointments – Is someone asking you to do something for them? Do you need to remember to come back to an email? Simply use Daylite for Outlook to create a task or schedule an appointment, and the email will be linked in Daylite so it’s easy to find later.
  3. Create a Complete History – By saving emails and attachments and linking them to associated contacts, projects and potential deals, you and your entire team have the full history of communications in Daylite, regardless of which team member received and saved the email.
