Understanding hashtags in Outlook.com

In Outlook on the web and Outlook.com you can tag words or phrases in email messages and calendar events to indicate a link between the various items. For example, if you're planning an event, you can add the #conference hashtag to emails, events, and meetings. To see all items with the #conference hashtag, you can choose the hashtag. Outlook on the web and Outlook.com will show you all items with that hashtag in one place.

  1. Type a hashtag # symbol in the Subject line or the body of an email message or calendar event, and without adding any spaces, enter the name of the tag. A list appears containing tags that already exist, choose from that list, or create a new tag.

  3. Finish creating your email message or calendar event, and click Send.
