Isn’t it fun when a new feature just shows up in front of you before you even knew about it? I recently installed Microsoft Office 2013 on my production laptop, and was working on an outline of questions for an upcoming TechNet Radio show we’re recording in a couple of days.
When finished, I created an e-mail that I had intended to attach the document to.
“Attach a document? Why aren’t you just storing them in SkyDrive or SharePoint?”
Baby steps, my friend. Baby steps.
Anyway.. what freaked me out (in a good way) was when I hit SEND…
Yeah.. like most of us have done at least once in our lives, I hit send before I remembered to attach the file. But in the text (or context?) of the message, I simply mentioned attaching something. So Office 2013 Outlook gave me this message basically saying to me, “Hey Kevin.. um.. duh! I bet you meant to attach something here, but you didn’t. So.. what are we gonna do about that?”
I love little surprises like that.
Do you? Let’s discuss in the comments.

Yeah, Gmail has had this feature for a couple of years.
Well good for them. 🙂
