OnePlaceMail for SharePoint Online missing desktop Functionality - Custom Fields
So very happy an MS Store app was released as I mostly only use Office 365 OWA.
I was very disappointed however once I realised that the custom fields added to the one place mail doctype are no longer usable.
Without these, the functionality is almost pointless as emails are saved in OWA as .eml files which means you can't view them online.
I was using this feature to save all emails received relating to invoicing and payments. I added custom fields so when saving I could add in extra info pertaining to the payment amount, type, cost type etc. Then I could just filter to list any way I liked and had the email as a backup if needed.
Can't do that now and the ability to filter is gone so the only thing the new tool is good for is saving attachments to the SharePoint doc lib wich is OK but not the function I need.
When will the Store App have the same functionality as the desktop app, being able to fill in the custom fields?
We’re pleased to update this item, with the information that it is now possible to capture some additional custom columns when saving to SharePoint using the OnePlaceMail app for Outlook.
Thanks for your feedback.
At this stage the app is in preview, so we aim to be adding to, and enhancing the features and capabilities that are available.
If you have the OnePlaceMail addin you should be able to view the eml messages that are stored in SharePoint - by browsing to the document library.
I do not have a definite time frame I can tell you right now as to when additional metadata will be available - but I will leave this thread open so we can update it as this feature becomes available.
Please let us know any other comments/thoughts you might have - we appreciate the feedback.
