Campus Directory information now in Outlook

You’ve always been able to right-click on an email address in Outlook and choose “Open Outlook Properties” or “Open Contact Card” to get a quick look at the office or phone number for an employee. However, if you’ve used that trick you may have noticed that that information didn’t change if the person moved to a new office or got a new phone number after they were hired.

That Outlook data is now being updated once a day from the online Campus Directory, so you should be able to rely on it for the current office (room), phone number, department, and job title, assuming the employee and their division have kept their information up-to-date in Campus Directory.
