Outlook Addin Release Notes

March 2019 (version 2.1)

Screen Time Limit

How much time do you want to spend on email daily? 

Timyo will remind you to take a break so you better control how you spend time on email.

The limit resets every day at midnight. A notification will appear 5 min before the limit expires.

Note: it's an enterprise setting. As an enterprise, you can decide to disable this feature at the installation. The user can activate it manually from Timyo settings.

New nudges

Timyo detects back-and-forth conversations and large attachments so you can adopt email best practices in your email communications.

Note: it's an enterprise setting. As an enterprise, you can decide to enable or disable one of these rules. You can define your own specific messaging.

February 2019 (version 2.0)

Today Inbox

When you schedule your emails with Timyo (or receive an email with Timyo expectations), you now can sort these emails with the "Today" button. These emails are organized by date. 
A red badge indicates when some emails are overdue and require your attention.

Follow-up if no reply

In the "Waiting" inbox, a red badge appears to notify you that one or more of your emails have not received a response in the expected timeframe.

Nudge to adopt best email practices

Timyo suggests you in context email best practices: avoid mass “CC” or mailing group, call or use instant messaging if the matter is really urgent.

Note: it's an enterprise setting. As an enterprise, you can decide to enable or disable one of these rules. You can define your own specific messaging and add links to open some specific desktop or web applications like Microsoft teams for example.

January 2019 (version 1.11)

A new set of Timyo icons

When you receive an email with Timyo expectations, the new icons indicate what type of actions is required from the sender and if you are in CC.

Nudge for Urgent email

When your email is categorized as Urgent (email with an "ASAP" Timyo expectation), a message can be displayed to educate the user (for example, to use this notion wisley or to use a channel more appropriate to manage the urgency) and to save some useless emails to be sent.

NB: That's an enterprise feature. As an enterprise, you can enable it for your entire domain name and customize the sentence in English and French.

Support of Delegate Inbox Access

If you manage another person's mail, you now can use Timyo.

November 2018 (version 1.10)

Compose experience

The "when" field popup has been reviewed so it's only 2 clicks to fulfill the key fields. 

"No response" becomes "Information" and "Response" becomes "Question".

Then you can easily customize the expectation header by:

  • adding an emoji
  • changing the language 
  • selecting the appropriate Timyo header

Feedback signature

Embed survey to capture feedback on your emails sent with Timyo to know if your recipients like it.


This signature can be customized by enterprise domain name

You'll receive an email with the feedback left by your recipients.

Notifications for "ASAP" email only

A new Timyo setting allows you to be interrupted in your work only when an email requests your immediate attention.


Setting per domain name

Restore email asynchronicity by default in your team. 
When you write an internal email, Timyo can automatically add an expectation in your email so you can reduce the stress of your team, limit the interruptions due to emails and protect the focus of your teammates.

Sent an email to support@timyo.com to enable this feature.

Right to disconnect

New expectation header

New expectation header styles to better fit the context of your email.


August 2018

Unschedule email

Now you can unschedule one or several emails from the Timyo panel or with a right click.

Distinguish email for tomorrow or for later

The green calendar icon is a bit different for an email for tomorrow and an email for later.

For the users who are not using Outlook with the preview pane, now you can see the assigned date with a right click.

June 2018

Offline mode

Now Timyo Add-in works in offline mode.

Expected replies

Because you send email with clear expectations, Timyo lets you know when a reply is pending or overdue.

Choice "No date"

Now you can select Timyo expectation with "no date" associated.

Accessibility for everyone

We have slightly modified our set of icons to make the solution accessible for colorblind people.

May 2018

Performance & stability enhancements

Timyo add-in no longer duplicates emails saving your mailbox quota, eliminating crashes, and providing an overall faster experience when you prioritize emails or receive emails with expectations.

Streamlined flat design

We introduce a single calendar icon instead of using three (replacing the sun, the cup and the hourglass). This approach offers a cleaner, more intuitive experience.

Indicators for emails are prioritized for today and later

ASAP icon: identifies emails requiring immediate attention

Mailing list support

Timyo now supports mailing lists, allowing you to see the right time indicator (today, later....) when you receive an email addressed to a mailing list and composed with a Timyo expectation.

Removal of the "Done" button

The "Done" button has been removed and replaced with standard "archive", "delete" or "move to" actions to clean out your inbox.

Introducing onboarding video

When first installing Timyo, a 1 min tutorial is presented allowing anyone in the enterprise to quickly get up to speed on the basic principles behind using Timyo.
Getting Started with Tutorial Video

March 2018

New compose experience

  • Highlighting when a response is not needed using a "No response" categorization. No Response Necessary (NRN) is widely accepted terminology that helps eliminate unnecessary replies that quickly clog up everyone’s inbox. “No response” replaces the "Read" category.

  • Many of you thought assigning a specific date was too restrictive so we introduced softer timelines such as "within a week", "within 2 weeks", and "within a month".

  • Brackets [ ] are now used around Timyo expectations: This is designed to help recipients unfamiliar with Timyo differentiate expectations as content not part of the body of the email.

  • Finally, we are introducing 3 new expectation header styles with emoji support to best fit the context of your email (they will replace the old ones).
