usability participants needed for Outlook:Mac study in March

As we have announced, Outlook is coming to your Mac later this year. My team is working hard on getting everything ready for you. To that end, we're conducting another usability study of Outlook:Mac.

The study will be conducted at my lab in Mountain View, California, during the week of March 22. For this study, we need participants who meet the following criteria:

  • use a Mac for work purposes
  • connect your Mac to an Exchange server
  • use mail and calendar on your Exchange server several times per week

It would be nice to get a few people who use both their Mac and Outlook on Windows to connect to Exchange, too!

If you meet these criteria, please contact me with the following information:

  • your name
  • email address
  • daytime phone number

You'll get a call or email from someone at Microsoft who will ask you some additional questions and hopefully get you signed up to come in.

If you're not in the Bay Area, or you're not available that week, or you don't meet these criteria, my team will continue to conduct usability studies for Office:Mac 2011 (and future versions of Office!), so don't lose heart. You can sign up to participate in future usability studies here. We've done hundreds of hours of usability testing for Office 2011 so far, and we have additional studies planned, so there are more opportunities coming soon.

Please feel free to forward this along to anyone who know who might meet these criteria and be interested in participating in this study!
