Email and PDF, a Match Made in Heaven

Nitro has commonly been referred to as the missing piece of the Microsoft Office suite –and now more than ever, we’re making tremendous strides to “complete the suite.” Next stop: Microsoft Outlook.

Today, Outlook is the second most-used email client worldwide, with over 17% of the market share. According to a recent McKinsey & Company report, the average interaction worker spends an estimated 28% of the workweek managing e-mail. Outlook is much more than an email application; it’s a personal information manager with the power to organize your emails, calendars, contacts, tasks, and to-do lists all in one place. In fact, it seems to do nearly everything but convert your emails to PDF files.

As experienced digital document users and business people know, backing up emails from Microsoft Outlook has not always been the most efficient or eco-friendly procedure. The process can be tiresome and redundant – some folks take screen shots of their emails, while others print them out individually only to scan back into their computer as PDF files. For everyone else, well, we can only assume they just stare at their computer and weep.

We know what you’re thinking: Shouldn’t this process be second nature?

Well, now it is. Nitro Pro 9 has a plug-in that allows you to convert a single message or selected messages into a PDF file, append an already existing document or convert an entire folder at once. Available options include the ability to control email compatibility settings, the option to include attachments in the PDF, and security configurations, encryption, and password settings. Another option is to automatically convert your new messages to PDF for archiving purposes on a set interval, so you don’t have to spend time creating your backups.

This plugin will show up in your Outlook application with your installation of Nitro Pro 9. You’ll see the new tab, aptly named Nitro Pro 9, to the left of the View tab.

The Outlook plugin is only one of many enhancements in Nitro Pro 9. Check them out here and then download a 14 day trial.
