When I look at the Microsoft Launcher one of the things it want’s to do is have me put my work account in the Launcher. I do want to incorporate my work email and calendar into my phone, but am not sure if I should do it in Outlook for Android or if I should use Microsoft Launcher instead. I don’t know what incorporating it into Launcher gets me, if anything beyond just adding my email to Outlook.

 

So, should I only do this in Outlook for Android, or is putting it into Microsoft Launcher the correct place?

Both of them have their unique advantages.

Signing in to launcher gives you access to your work documents, Calender, Tasks, Sticky Notes as well as any policies if set by your organization. But you cannot create new mails or Calender entries from there.

Having account on Outlook ensures a rich Mail and Calender experience with ability to see Files, contacts and more.

I usually sign in to both places to ensure the best experience together from both apps.
