Vancouver's Taglocity announced today that the latest release of its add-in for Outlook will bring much of the functionality already offered in Google's Gmail app to Microsoft's email client.
According to their press release, Taglocity 2.0 will bring Gmail-like features like enhanced search, conversation threading, tags, and automation to Outlook. The software will allow users to assign an unlimited number of tags to any Outlook item and automate mundane tasks by running actions once tags are set. The company claims that Taglocity 2.0 will be able to turn emails into appointments, assign additional tags, or automatically move messages into specified folders.
The most important addition to Outlook through Taglocity 2.0 is the ability for users to use one of Gmail's most prominent features - conversation viewing. Like Gmail, Taglocity 2.0 will let Outlook users bring up all related emails in chronological order and group all conversations together in search results.
Bringing Gmail-like features to Outlook is something many users have been asking for. Microsoft may not be listening but Taglocity heard the calls loud and clear.
