Microsoft Outlook is a great product to manage your time. It’s used to receive and reply to all your emails, make and organize your schedule and save your context and manage your appointments, meetings and daily tasks. Apart from the email function itself, Outlook can schedule your meetings, appointments, tasks, to do list and everything else. You can set up a new appointment, and you can see your previous appointments as well. Once an email account is connected, Outlook opens up with its workplace made by several mail panels and synchronizes with the server provider to get all the read and unread emails from it.
You need to connect at least one email account with Outlook, but you can add multiple email accounts and operate your desired one.
