  • Hello Immysl,

    You would need to use "<VersionOverrides>" for your manifest. Inside this section you would use...

    <ExtensionPoint xsi:type="MessageReadCommandSurface">

    and for the action you would "ShowTaskPane" with the resource pointed to the HTML file you would like to load. The example of such manifest you may find at GitHub for OfficeDev team
