Show Compose app by default. RRS feed

  • Question

  • On read scenario, the mail app is shown by default.

    But in compose scenario, we have to manually select the app each time we compose. 

    Is there a way to show our mail app by default in compose scenario ?

  • Hi Selva,

    As far as I know, the latest Mail apps support add-in command. Mail add-in commands provide ways to initiate specific add-in actions from the ribbon. This lets users access add-ins from within Mail in a simple, intuitive, and unobtrusive way. Because they offer increased functionality in a seamless manner, add-in commands allow developers to create more engaging scenarios and add-ins.

    You can get more detail about it from link below:
    Overview of add-in commands for Mail

    And here is an video that introduce this feature from the 30 minute mark:

    Note: The add-in command work only in Outlook in Office 2016 Preview on Windows desktop.

    In addition, if you have any feedback about Office add-ins, you can submit them from link below:
