Missing Command - AddIn Bar RRS feed

  • Question

  • hello

    using this demo manifest file 

    https://github.com/OfficeDev/Outlook-Add-In-Contextual-Regex

    I uploaded to my Exch 2017 on prem, and the comand displays in the AddIn bar for message read in OWA. But cannot get the command to show in the AddIn bar for Desktop outlook (2019).

    What can the issue be?

  • The demo you are using is for Contextual Add-ins, which are Add-ins that activate when a regular expression match is detected in the body of a message. Contextual Add-ins will only be shown when the user clicks a highlighted phrases matching the regex specified in the manifest (see the "Rule" node with attribute "ItemHasRegularExpressionMatch".)

    You will need to add another "Rule" node and extension point to have your Add-in activate for Read Messages. See this repo for examples of this manifest.

    Or if we are misunderstanding your question, please reply and clarify the scenario. If this is the case, please also provide the version of Outlook Desktop and screenshots of the issue to help us more quickly solve your problem.
