  • Hi,

    What project do you develop? An VSTO add-in or Office add-in?

    If you are developing VSTO add-ins, you could deploy your application by using ClickOnce. Please visit Choosing a Deployment Strategy. The application could be updated automatically when deploying by ClickOnce.

    If you are developing Office add-ins, please visit Deploy and publish your Office Add-in. You may publish your manifest to

    • 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.

    If there are updates in your manifest, you need to re-upload your manifest firstly. If there are updates in your web application, the applications on user-side would be updated automatically.
