If you accept a suggestion, the business address, website and other information found online will automatically be added to the company’s profile in your Outlook Customer Manager.
Use Cortana to automatically schedule meetings with customers
Setting up a meeting with customers can be time-consuming—often taking more time than the duration of the meeting itself. But with a little help from Cortana, Outlook Customer Manager now offers you the option to let Cortana, your personal digital assistant, arrange meetings on your behalf, so you can focus on more productive work.
Graduate from managing contacts to building relationships
Now you can eliminate the hassle of maintaining consistent customer information across the various apps your business uses, as Microsoft has made it easy to connect to Outlook Customer Manager using Microsoft Flow so you can automate repetitive multi-step workflows needed to manage customer information. For example, with a few clicks, you can ensure that new subscribers who sign up for your newsletter in MailChimp are automatically added as business contacts in Outlook Customer Manager. To help you get started, you can view the available templates at Microsoft.
