CloudExtend users who use the application regularly may elect to turn on task pane pinning to keep the application open as they move from email to email. Users who don't regularly use the application may want to keep the application unpinned to save screen real estate.
Who can use task pane pinning 📌 ?
All users from free to Enterprise can use task pane pinning as long as their system meets the minimum system requirements as set by Microsoft below.
Pinnable task panes are currently available to Office 365 subscribers on Outlook 2016 or later for Windows (build 7900.xxxx or later), Outlook 2016 or later for Mac (version 16.13.503 or later), and Outlook Online. (If you meet these requirements but are still not seeing the Pin, click here for troubleshooting steps).
How to enable task pane pinning?
Users will see a pin icon next to the close(X) icon at the top right of the App as shown below. By default the application is in an unpinned state, meaning if you move to a different email, the application will close automatically.
To keep the application open as you navigate from mail to mail, click the Pin icon. Once pinned the application will stay open all the time until you close it. In the event you do close it, the application will need to be pinned again.
