Making add-in accessible to our customers without publishing to the store? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Just the like the title says: Is it possible to make an add-in I've developed accessible to our customers without publishing to the store?

    I'm in the process of publishing to the store but we are having some issues with that. So maybe it would be a better idea if our customers could just manually add it to their organization? That would make the add in available on all of their users Outlook clients, right?

    Any help with this would be most appreciated :)

  • Hi, Max

    Please visit Deploy and publish your Office Add-in

    You can use one of several methods to deploy your Office Add-in for testing or distribution to users:

    • Sideloading - Use as part of your development process to test your add-in running on Windows, Office Online, iPad, or Mac.
    • Office 365 admin center preview - Use to distribute your add-in to users in your organization in a cloud or hybrid deployment.
    • Office Store - Use to distribute your add-in publicly to users.
    • SharePoint catalog - Use as part of your development process to test your add-in, or, in an on-premises environment, to distribute your add-in to users in your organization.

    So you could distribute the manifest into SharePoint Catalog, then the users would see the add-in in their organization.

    For more information, please visit Publish task pane and content add-ins to a SharePoint catalog

    Regards.
