How can I get current logged-in user for Office Add-ins for Word, Excel and PowerPoint? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to get the current logged-in user inside my task pane app? I'm working on a Word add-in and would want the current logged-in user's email or username. Will this be possible also for Excel and PowerPoint? Thank you!

  • Hi Romnick,

    As far as I know, there isn’t the API to get current logged-in user for Office add-ins for word, Excel and PowerPoint. You may submit the user voice here.
