Who Is Feature in Microsoft Outlook 365

Who Is It

Imagine that we are typing an Email Message, and in the Body of the Message we are mentioning someone’s Name. We are mentioning the Name of that person and we do not remember who he or she is and we need to refresh our memory. We are not even sure that we have got the right person. What do we do?

We just use the Who Is feature that is available in Microsoft Outlook 365. All you need to do is to continue reading.

In the image below I have created a New E-mail Message and in the Body of the Message. I also have typed in the message that I want followed by a Name. For this example the name is Douris Christine.

Body of Message

Now just in case we don’t remember who this person is, and we want to refresh our memory, all that we need to do is to select (highlight) the Name as shown below and do a right click on it with our mouse. Straight away a shortcut menu appears, where we just select the command Who Is… as shown below.

Who Is Feature

Once the Who Is command is selected from the shortcut menu, the Contact dialog box will appear with all the information that we have added for the specific Contact.

Contact Information

Quite a neat feature available in Microsoft Outlook 365. The only thing necessary is that we must have the Name that we type in our Message also as a Contact in our Address Book. This way, we can see, look through and remind us of Who Is the specific person.  If we have more than one Address Book, the Check Names dialog box will appear where we must select the Contact that we want and then press the Ok button. The selected Contacts Name will be displayed.

Personally, I am a person who remembers faces and not names, so I found the Who Is feature in Outlook 365 quite helpful.
