Focused Inbox using Outlook 2016 as part of my office 365 home edition connecting to outlook.com just started working today.

Hi Llloyd: 

 

 

What version and build of O365 are you using?   Can someone tell me if this is a universal roll out or just by accounts?  If I don't use outlook.com, will it still work? (I  use IMAP accounts primarily).

I am on office 365 ProPlus (home edition) version 1709 build 8528.2084, insider, monthly channel (targeted).

 

I know from this blog that MS was working to fix outlook 2016 so it would work with outlook.com accounts (personal accounts, not O365 business accounts) and that has finally happened since I now see the focused inbox option in Outlook 2016.  

Highlighted

Hi Allen, I picked up on this post because I am thoroughly confused by Focused inbox availability.  My office is currently on Office 2013, stand alone, but use Microsoft's Exchange Online as our email server.  My boss opened Outlook 2013 one day to find cluttered had disappeared.  Clutter completely changed the way she did email in a good way!  And it's gone.  But focused inbox is not available for Outlook 2013.

 

So I was thinking we will move to Office 2016, again, stand alone. But you're saying here that Office 2016 will never get the Focused Inbox?

 

I just find your analogy of a car so frustrating and here's why: We're driving along on stone wheels (like the Flintstones) with Office 2013 when Microsoft shows up and hands us rubber tires.  Didn't have to upgrade to new versions or change the way we purchase Office...didn't have to buy the new car!

 

Then a year later Microsoft comes back and takes the tires back because they have a new and improved tubeless tire.  But, sorry, you have to buy the new car and no, you can't keep using clutter, so back to the stone age for you with no recourse.

 

Oh, and by the way, the latest model of the car also won't use the new and improved tubeless tire.  Only cars you rent from us.

 

Now I've wasted half my morning wondering if purchasing Office Professional Plus 2016 will get her a focused inbox or not.

 

I am venting. It's ridiculous.

 

Can you answer one question for me: As of October 17, 2017 does the Office Professional Plus 2016 version of Outlook have focused inbox?

Highlighted
I have that - actually Version 1709 - build 8528.2139 Click to run monthly channel targeted - and still no Focused inbox.

I have Comcast Business Internet which gives us two exchange accounts and sharepoint as per of the package -- on Wedensday, they were changing to Microsoft o365 servers - wonder if that will fix the problem - maybe we will get office from them as well.

Still frustrated with Microsoft because this should have been made available to all of us home users a while ago.

Hi Jeremy,

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience, and I'm sorry that it has not been the best thus far.

Addressing the most significant issue for your boss first - Clutter is not gone. You can turn Clutter back on for your boss, until you get to a version of Office that includes support for Focused Inbox. My guess is your boss was using Outlook on the web at some point and turned on Focused Inbox, not knowing that turning on FI would turn off Clutter (as FI is the replacement for Clutter, see this blog for details: https://blogs.office.com/en-us/2016/07/26/outlook-helps-you-focus-on-what-matters-to-you/).

To get back to clutter, you can turn it back on with PowerShell. Example: Turn on Clutter for a single user named Allie Bellew. Set-Clutter -Identity “Allie Bellew” -Enable $true

If you need the non-powershell way to do this, let me know.

Answering your second question about availability: Office Professional Plus 2016 (bought standalone, rather than part of Office 365) does not and will not support Focused Inbox. Traditional versions of Office (what you are calling standalone) are point-in-time purchases. The product code that we released when we shipped 2016 is the code you get, no matter what day you buy it. Traditional Office clients only get security or bug fixes, the price does not include updates. You will need to buy Office 365 ProPlus in order to get any product updates, including FI. As said above, for those who are not going to update, we will support Clutter for the next several years. However, the long term status is that you will need to eventually go to Office 365 clients.

Hopefully this helps clarify our status a bit. Let me know if that isn't clear.

Thanks for reaching out. Your build is certainly capable of supporting FI. As stated in the top of this article, you are missing one of 2 other requirements:
1. Using Office 365/Exchange Online email - I'm not familiar with what email Comcast provides. It sounds like they are moving to Office 365/Exchange Online, which is great. But that would mean you don't have EXO today, so that could be why you aren't seeing it.
2. Modern Auth enabled - this would be controlled by the tenant admin. Do you know if you have access to your Admin Portal? Or will you once you get moved to EXO? There, you would need to turn on Modern Auth in order to get FI (see article at top for how to turn on Modern Auth).

As I've stated here, we are removing the Modern Auth requirement by end of year. So if you can't figure that part out in the interim, just sit tight and we will get rid of that soon.

Thanks for response, Allen.  Forgive my tirade.  I was not aware that clutter was still available and had really spent most of my morning looking at all the ways FI was not available for our typical way of doing things when I have a host of other things I need to get done.

 

She did exactly as you said...logged on to the web version and clutter disappeared.

 

Please provide the non-powershell way to turn it back on.

 

We will get ready for the changes.  Honestly, if I could get her to use OWA it would be so much easier! So much better.

 

Anyway, thanks!

1. Sign in to Outlook on the web with your boss's account. Note: You need to be using the regular version of Outlook on the web, not the 'light' version. If using Light, switch to full version by navigating to Options > General > Light version and clear the Use the light version of Outlook on the web check box.

Then:
2. In the upper-left corner of the page, choose App launcher > Outlook.
3. On the navigation bar, go to Settings > Mail > Layout > Focused Inbox. Choose Don’t sort messages. Click Save.
4. Return to inbox. Refresh the browser.
5. On the navigation bar, return to settings and the Clutter options should now be available. Settings > Mail > Automatic processing > Clutter.
6. Choose Separate items identified as Clutter > Save

It's back.  Thanks again!  Now we can take a few months to plan for future changes.

So now that my Exchange account  has been moved to Microsoft servers -- I do get focused inbox on that email account only -- however I only use my exchange account for tasks, calendars, notes, and people and not much email (Except text message backup) 

 

There are no focused inbox option on my IMAP accounts - which make up the majority of my email aaccounts -- do I have to wait until Modern Authorization is disabled? 

 

Highlighted
Good to hear Jeff. As I noted above, it will only work against Exchange accounts, as the intelligence required to determine if an item should be in Focused v Other is done in our datacenters. So it will not work for IMAP accounts, or anything other than Exchange and Outlook.com accounts.

Thanks!
Highlighted

So when will it work against IMAP accounts just like my Android --- by the end of the year when Modern Authorization requirement is dropped? - Please confirm.

Highlighted
Hey Jeff - as I noted above, it will not work for IMAP accounts. We have no plans to enable this broadly for IMAP accounts in Outlook 2016 for Windows/Mac. We will support Gmail, but we don't have plans past that.
Highlighted
So why do IMAP accounts it work on a less powerful Android Device. And is there a way to link an IMAP account to my Exchange account - so it becomes a subemail box of Exchange? I think I speak for many users when I say that you should work on it with IMAP accounts as that is most of the accounts we use.

I have the latest update of Outlook 2016, shouldn't I see this by know?   

Highlighted
Nope. Just read the article at the top of this conversation, which explains why. Requires Exchange Online mailbox and modern auth.

I have Outlook.com which supports exchange so I should see it, so why don't I?

Thanks for clarifying. Outlook.com is not supported right now. Will be supported in an upcoming update.

This thread has confused me even more, I'm afraid.  Still not sure why we don't have focused inbox for the Targeted Semi-annual Channel.  We are O365 clients (exchange online, etc), have modern auth and FI enabled.  The monthly channel sees FI in Outlook 2016, but the rest don't.  The semi-annual users are up to version 1708, have FI for OWA and iOS apps, but complain that they don't have it on the desktop. 

 

When exactly should we see FI available across all of Outlook 2016 (O365 pro-plus) update channels?

Jeff

Allen seems to say that it will only be available on outlook.com, exchange accounts from Microsoft, and eventually gmail -- but can't explain why I can't use it for my IMAP accounts on Outlook 2016 desktop when my little Android running Outlook doesn't care what kind of email account I have. They say it will when Modern Authorization isn't required it will work on all accounts but then they contradict themselves and say it won't. I am as confused as you.

Simply put -- FI , in theory, should work on all devices regardless of email account type -- especially if it works on an Android version of Outlook with those same accounts. No one has explained that to me either.

I wonder if there is a 3rd party app for Outlook 2016 desktop that will do the same thing and help you prioritize email better.
(I have 12,000 items in each of multiple mailboxes and have problems getting through the clutter).

>> eventually gmail 

When the "Microsoft cloud" is supported in outlook desktop, then it will work in gmail... because the ms cloud is outlook.com on the backend syncing with gmail and the account is added as exchange. At this time, other imap servers are not expected to be supported (they are using the gmail api to sync to the 'microsoft cloud'). 

 

I understand the process on the apps for separating focused that aren't on exchange is a bit different than it is for exchange accounts - basically bulk or not bulk. Could outlook desktop do this? Sure... but they need to update Outlook to add filters for it.  It's easier to add the process to the server and tweak the algorithm as needed for millions of accounts at once, instead of adding the sorting process client side and pushing out updates to everyone.  

 

If enough people request it, they might add it to a future version - https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/322590-outlook-2016-for-windows/suggestions/31892239-focused-in...

Hey Jeff - Targeted Semi annual will get the update in March. That is a slower channel, Monthly channel got the update first and it is then coming to monthly in March. It would them come to Semi Annual channel (normal) 3 months after Targeted.

You need to provide a way to flip this feature on faster for deferred channel. You killed our users ability to use clutter without providing a replacement for the service. This has caused a lot of disruption in our org. Clutter never should have been disabled for ANY user that was not on focused inbox already. When I asked about this in august you said it would hit first release for deferred in October, then I guess backed out on that date. This rollout has been a joke.  

Highlighted
Is there any place we can see the schedule for each of these updates. We know that new features are coming, but not when. One year without clutter would have been good to know ahead of time.
Highlighted
Hi Robert. Your users can still use Clutter. We didn't disable Clutter, it is still working for existing users (and will continue to work for several years) until Focused Inbox is available to all users. However, user can turn it off themselves. I'm guessing several of your users did this using Outlook on the web at some point and turned on Focused Inbox, not knowing that turning on FI would turn off Clutter.

To get back to clutter, you can turn it back on with PowerShell. Example: Turn on Clutter for a single user named Allie Bellew. Set-Clutter -Identity “Allie Bellew” -Enable $true

If you need the non-powershell way to do this, let me know.

Alternatively, you could consider moving to Monthly Channel.

We will send updates directly in the Office 365 Message Center when we are coming closer to rollout of the Modern Auth requirement removal and the release to Semi-Annual, so that you are aware.

Allen,

If one of our admins ran the powershell commands to enable Focused at the tenant level, would that turn off clutter for the end users?

 

Set-OrganizationConfig -FocusedInboxOn $True

That is correct. You can turn it back off and Clutter will be re-enabled. This only sets the default state - users control the setting themselves in their UI.

Well that is a bummer, web version is still fine but little surprised it is not available yet after all this time. I bet I was using a beta version a couple months ago, if I remember correctly.

I'm sure someone else has asked them same question but what I don't get is why Focus inbox is available for my Android app and not Outlook 2016, seems pretty goofy.
Highlighted
Allen, Clutter stopped working widely across our organization late last week with no warning. Are you sure Microsoft didn't roll out a mass update to deactivate Clutter prior to Focused Inbox being ready for all clients?

Focused Outlook coming to an Outlook near me? It's not coming to my outlook so do I have to check in the businesses's nearby? Is this some sort of treasure hunt?

 

I am a partner but this brainless roll out of a "feature" is so typical and makes it hard to stay loyal(or see the worth of moving up the partner ladder). I am a very savvy problem solver and I am 2 hours deep and no closer to either turning clutter back on or getting "focused inbox" on in Outlook 2016.

 

Well at least they actively warned me that the change was coming....Oh wait they didn't do that at all, I have to wait for it to stop working and then stumble onto this article(which doesn't offer a working solution).

 

Thanks Bill! Way to leave me flat footed when my client CEO is bitching about his clutter not working. Makes me look so good talking them out of G Suite that I have to type in complex code to change basic settings. Really? Should I still be calling this clunker BPOS?

Focused vs Other has been in the mobile apps for a long time, before it started rolling out to EXO mailboxes. That said, if you're seeing Focused inbox in OWA (web, not mobile) but not your desktop then you should check that your desktop client is fully updated.

Thanks for your thoughtful and emotionless reply :). You can turn Clutter back on using the PowerShell script I provided above. Or if you aren't familiar with that, you can use the manual steps I also provided in this conversation (copied again below).

As for communications, the best place to stay up to date on Focused Inbox is to read the Office 365 Message Center. We post there each time we make a change to our service you need to be aware of. For FI, we posted when we first started rolling out to Outlook on the web, and again when we rolled out to Monthly Channel (this Feb/March). We will post again here shortly, as soon as we finalize removing the modern auth requirement explained in the initial post here.

Nothing about FI has changed since March...if your customer is complaining to you, they likely in-advertently turned on Focused Inbox in the web client, not understanding their Outlook for Windows client was not yet enabled. Turning on FI turns off Clutter (since they are the same thing, implemented differently.

__Manual steps__
1. Sign in to Outlook on the web with your boss's account. Note: You need to be using the regular version of Outlook on the web, not the 'light' version. If using Light, switch to full version by navigating to Options > General > Light version and clear the Use the light version of Outlook on the web check box.

Then:
2. In the upper-left corner of the page, choose App launcher > Outlook.
3. On the navigation bar, go to Settings > Mail > Layout > Focused Inbox. Choose Don’t sort messages. Click Save.
4. Return to inbox. Refresh the browser.
5. On the navigation bar, return to settings and the Clutter options should now be available. Settings > Mail > Automatic processing > Clutter.
6. Choose Separate items identified as Clutter > Save

Ricky - I think your question is specific to IMAP, right? As we discussed earlier in the thread, it is available for Outlook for Windows (subject to the requirements that you have Modern Auth enabled, on Monthly Channel and using an Exchange Online account).

For IMAP accounts, the answer is too expansive to explain in detail here. But it has to do with how Outlook for iOS/Android is architected, specifically how they cache a portion of your mailbox in our Outlook cloud service. This enables some features that aren't possible without this middle tier. That architecture isn't something we plan to enable for all of Outlook right now, as it is quite expensive from a time and server storage perspective.

Hey Scott - we didn't have anything programmatic across Office 365, but we did see reports from a few customers similar to yours. Check your Office365 Service Health Dashboard and see if you have a post from last Friday. That will have more details to share.

Sorry, but my client did not do anything to turn on FI. In fact both his clutter and my clutter stopped working at pretty much the exact same time last Thursday at 4 and we are on completely separate tenants. So, clearly it is some sort of multi-tenant update pushed out on the back end.

 

In any case I have turned clutter back on for both of us. I was trying to move forward with Focused inbox, but after trying every article I could find and spending a couple of hours with support last night it is just not working in Outlook 2016 on several machines.

 

I'm not going to apologize for being annoyed about this. When clutter was first rolled out we got e-mails explaining it. Now I guess we have to monitor a blog to find out about this stuff and even still it would not have warned me that it was going to be changed for me when it was.

Highlighted
Allen, thank you for your response. My frustration level is beginning to approach Reef's on this one, though.

Checking the Office365 Message Center had nothing about Focused Inbox or Clutter in the last month. Office365 Service Health did mention a Clutter issue, but it just started 10/27 according to the message. Also, our ticket and our support "Ambassador" haven't mentioned anything about a resolution. Our "Ambassador" has been encouraging us to go to Focused Inbox as they stated Clutter is on a limited timeframe.

As a result, I decided to try it myself before I open Pandora's box for the rest of our domain. I immediately have to stop using my mobile email app (Touchdown) since it only supports Outlook for Android. Outlook for Android lacks some pretty significant features (no snoozing of reminders, no tasks, Android Wear inability to "Mark Read" or "Move to Other", etc.) that other mail apps have and I use regularly. Additionally, as mentioned above by other users, I cannot get Focused Inbox working on my Outlook 2016 desktop on either my new Surface or my legacy desktop.

I'd like to say I'm surprised that Microsoft would be so cavalier about recommendations when handling a ticket like this, but more than anything I feel like I've been burned for trusting Microsoft support advice once again. I'm still waiting to hear what impact rolling out Modern Authentication will have, as assuming that basic, elementary things that should be in place to support these actions has not been a winning strategy thus far.

Does anyone have an idea when Clutter will go away for good? I'd like to start planning on this far earlier than later, as there will need to be testing and training to ensure it rolls out smoothly for our users.

Thanks and don't mean to be a Debbie Downer but this is really infuriating when no one seems to know what is going on.

For years it's been the same.

  1. Roll out new feature, don't publish info, or put on some obscure blog.
  2. Admins complain.
  3. Microsoft Program Managers pinky swear they won't do it again.
  4. Go back to step 1.

My feeling is that ANYTHING that is going to happen to my tenant should be appearing in the Message Center in my tenant's Admin Center. That should be the sole source of information for my tenant. I shouldn't have to hunt down the information in a dozen or more different places.

Highlighted

This isn't the issue. You can still meet all the public requirements for Focused Inbox (version 1703 and above, modern authentication, and enabled for your tenant) and still not have it. This problem is that FI in only available for certain release channels, with no advanced notice at all (until this thread) of when the main release channels will get it.

Highlighted
Hey Reef - thanks for elaborating. You are correct, we had a service incident (which you can track in the Office 365 Service Health Dashboard) where some tenants saw Clutter turned off at the end of last week. That has been fixed. I apologize about the issue. You didn't get a proactive comm on this as it wasn't intentional nor expected. Going forward, the Message Center remains the best place to stay up to date on what is happening for Focused Inbox. You do not need to follow our blogs or this community forum.

As for getting Outlook 2016 working, it will work assuming you meet these requirements:
using Office 365 version of Office, on Monthly Channel, up to date, connected to an Exchange Online mailbox using Modern Authentication. That last requirement is the tricky one for most, and is being removed by the end of the year.
Highlighted
Sorry for the pain Scott. You didn't see a comm in the MC since this wasn't a practice or planned change, but rather a service incident. That did start on the 26th/27th last week. The fix was rolled out, it should be resolved now.

I'm sorry to hear that your ambassador hasn't been too helpful. Luckily you came to the right place - I work on the product team and know what is going on. Clutter will eventually go away, but not in the short term. Likely a couple years. We will keep it going until we are fully rolled out in Outlook for Windows. We will make an announcement in the Office 365 Message Center when we have an officially published timeline.

For modern auth, we are going to remove that requirement for Monthly Channel users in the next couple months. So if you aren't ready to enable Modern Auth broadly, you will still be able to get the feature here soon.
Highlighted
I agree, and I can tell you that everyone at Microsoft also agrees. As you note however, our execution hasn't been perfect and there have been times where something missed (for a variety of reasons). We are working to ensure that doesn't happen. But we are in agreement that the Message Center is the location.
Highlighted
Hey Jeff, sorry for the confusion. The note about it being only there for Monthly Channel was in the original Message Center post. We will have another post there shortly when we get rid of the modern auth requirement, then again in march when we go to Semi-Annual channel.

Hey Today i started my outlook 2016 and i noticed the inbox for @hotmail.com account suddenly had the focused inbox enabled, however the button to disable it, is not visible under view so i added it myselve to a new group by editing the ribbon. However the button is always disabled and i'm unable to disable focussed inbox on my consumer hotmail.com account. 

 

How can i disable this focused inbox again i don't want that ? I now see priority and other tabs in my inbox and i want it gone. Googling this problem does not provide any information.

 

you can see a screenshot of it here https://imgur.com/z5YqXd6

If you disable it in Outlook.com options, does the change sync to Outlook? 

https://outlook.live.com/owa/?path=/options/focusedinbox

Highlighted

No it had no impact, but i figured out the problem.

 

I temporary added my hotmail account to my outlook 2016 at work to test something but at work i'm using insider versions of office 2016 and thus outlook 2016. In the insider version the option to enable / disable focussed inbox on hotmail / outlook.com addresses is not greyed out. It must have changed something server sided, because at home i'm not using an insder version of outlook 2016 and could not disable it. So i suscribed to insider versions at home as well updated my office / outlook 2016 and i now had the option to disable focussed inbox.

 

It seem's we have to watch out which accounts we add to insider versions as it seems to save certain things server sided (like in this case) with no option to turn it back off (unless you also install an insider version)

Highlighted

Yeah, the build matters, but if it's supported client side, the option to turn it off should be client side too.

Why is this only accessible on ProPlus, and not on the Office 365 Home edition of Outlook 2016?

When can we expect it for the Home edition?
