Next® add-in for Outlook enhanced

Enhanced features for those who work with emails from Microsoft Outlook in Next®.

In Next® you may archive your email in a multitude of ways.

  • Right-click and archive from our Outlook mailbox
  • Drag'n drop from your Outlook mailbox
  • Automatically monitor selected folders or entire Outlook mailboxes
  • Automatically process entire Exchange servers  

The first of these options is done using the Next® add-in for Outlook. 

Archiving an email from your Outlook in-, or outbox. 

Archiving from Outlook with full validation

You may prefer to do your email archiving from within Outlook. 

What's new and interesting ? 

Archiving an Email with full validation 

When you right-click on an email to archive it, Next® automatically gets info like subject, sender, and receiver. And brings up the archiving form you know from Next® including all the look up and validation towards your business systems you know. 

Once your email is archived, it's automatically marked *Archived in Next®, and actually you should delete it from Outlook. 

When only the attachment is relevant 

Archiving only the attachment 

Often you receive business documents by email that are to be processed in the company. A purchase invoice, a contract, or an order form. Besides the complete email archive, to keep track of the communication between you and your business partners, you also want the specific document to be archived and processed.  

The business log

When you archive an email or attachment from Outlook in Next®, the business log is updated.

Future enhancements

In a coming release of Next®, you will be able to do even more from within your Office tools. Recently used documents in Next®, Pinned documents in Next®, and Search for documents in Next® are on the wish list.

For the techies

Next® add-ins for Office, are based on Microsoft's COM-technology, and as such are only available to clients running Windows. 

As Microsoft's newer web based add-in technology matures, we will investigate further how to embrace this for true platform independence.
