Shared Outlook 2016 Quick Parts RRS feed

  • Question

  • How would I share my quick parts I've created, or create a shared document that Outlook 2016 will pull from for each of my team members Outlook 2016 client? We have a shared exchange account and shared network folders. If possible, I don't want to export and import to each person. I would like a shared .dotx that, once updated, would be able to just restart outlook and provide the updated quick parts. Make sense?

    I did check and could not find the answer i'm looking for in previous questions, so sorry if it's a repeat that's already been answered.

    You have to save the template (.dotx) with the quick parts made to a network folder and add a registry key to have Outlook load that file in the network folder on start.
