Meet Cortana – Your New Calendar Assistant

cortana-calendar-assistant

Tired of spending too much time trying to coordinate group meeting times? Microsoft has developed Cortana into your very own AI assistant to fix that!
____________________________________________________

We’ve all been there. Countless emails, slow responses, and not knowing other’s calendars when it comes time to schedule a meeting. The amount of time it takes just to find a time to meet feels a little ridiculous sometimes. Surely there must be a better way, right?

Microsoft recently released a new application to solve this very problem. This project is called “Calendar.help” and is assisted by Cortana – Microsoft’s AI digital assistant, whose mission is to help you get things done. To now schedule a meeting with either a group or individual, simply CC: Cortana in an email and ask her in the email to set up a meeting! Cortana will automatically respond to those you invite and take care of all the back and forth emails by accessing anyone’s shared calendar or responding to emails of those who haven’t shared their calendar with Cortana.

This approach is called, In-Place hold.

One significant benefit of hold - as opposed to separate, read-only storage - is that items are preserved within the Exchange infrastructure. This preserves more of the information, including metadata, and makes management easier for IT admins. Users benefit because they can manage their mailboxes using the familiar Outlook interface. From an IT-perspective, In-Place Hold eliminates the necessity and complexity of maintaining a separate infrastructure and potentially storage for Exchange items.

I heard there was a send restriction in place for e-mail. Can you comment on this?

The default outgoing mail size is 10MB.  It can be increased easily to 25MB per mail.  Other limits include 500 recipients per message, or 1,500 recipients per 24-hour period, but distribution groups are counted as a single recipient.
