How do I configure to Microsoft Outlook 365?

Now that you’ve written a post in backstitch Studio, it’s time to share it with those you are trying to reach.

There are several channels in which you can use Studio to share your content. Sending your message via Microsoft Outlook 365 is a great option for many organizations who use this email provider and are looking for an easy way to send bulk emails.

Rather than using your native email platform directly, configuring Outlook with backstitch Studio comes with some added perks. The backstitch technology allows your organization to view analytics — such as who viewed your message and how it was viewed.

*Syncing your email provider with backstitch Studio will allow your organization to view employee engagement analytics that are not available via your native email provider.

1. Click on a Post to [Review], then select [Add Contacts]. You will see several options on the left sidebar. To share your content via Outlook, click on the [Outlook] icon on the left sidebar.
