  • For Office 2010 that sounds correct, the Web based apps can't run addins. However, for Office 15 Web based apps such as Click2Run *will* be able to run addins just as desktop based Office versions do now.

    Hi Ken,

    What i got form your reply is

    Standard office professional 2010 is still a desktop application and we can simply run our Addin,

    but if we are using any web based office application like creating/saving/modifying appointments remotely, we can not integrate any addin there.

    Am i correct here?

  • It should be identical. Office365 for Outlook 2010 is Office Professional for the most part, nothing would change. ClickToRun versions won't run addins at all unless you are using the beta of Outlook 15.

  • My Addin worked well against 365, without any change.
    (main points: Application events, Explorer events, Inspector events, Item events, Ribbonx, Form region, Searching items, manipulate items on send, etc.)

    I think the easiest way to check it, is to open a trial account in Office 365, and run some tests.

    Good luck!

  • Hi Ken,

    Thanks for your reply!

    Whatever i got about office 365 is , it's based on cloud computing and its like using web based office applications.That means i can send emails, create appointments in calender by signing in into my account.

    My question is , will Addin still work if i create and save appointments in my calendar remotely or by using web based outlook application? or Addin can only work with desktop appliications?

    Thanks

  • There is a Click2Run version of Office that's cloud based and that gets downloaded each time you start one of the Office applications. That version does not support any type of addins.
     
    The version of Office associated with Office365 is the standard Office Professional 2010, and that does support addins just as any other SKU of Office Professional 2010 does.
