Save Settings? As in other views, Outlook might display the Save View Settings dialog box to ask whether you want to save the view settings before you switch to a different view. You're probably getting used to this dialog box by now.

Double-click a type to display its contents, and then position the mouse pointer over an entry to view its contents or name .

By Contact In Timeline view, this displays the name of each contact that you selected in the Options dialog box. Double-click any contact's name to view recorded entries.
