Office 365/Outlook - "My Templates" style app RRS feed

  • Question

  • Very early in Office 365 (Outlook) development, but I am curious what style of an Outlook app I need to develop in order to achieve very similar behavior to "My Templates".  These features include:

    1. Available when "composing" messages (new or reply to message) 
    2. Located/layout on the right of the message (vs above the message)

    My Templates (default app from Microsoft) has the exact behavior I need.  I have just started - so I'm not clear on the settings/type of project (using Visual Studio).

    Thank you!

  • Hi Michael,

    What’s version of Visual Studio are you using? And I didn’t see the Office Dev tools for Visual Studio 2013 in web plat form installer, I am using web plat form installer 4.6.
    As far as I know, the Office Dev tools are contained in Visual Studio 2013 default, we don’t need to install in separately.

    And below article may be helpful for you studying apps for Outlook.

  • I have part of this figured out. Looks like I need to use the Office App 1.1 API and Office 2013 SP1. I also see an update for Office Dev tools for Visual Studio 2013 (March 2014) - but I am unable to install. The web platform installer says it cannot find the product. Has anyone else applied the March update for Office Dev tools?
