  • Question

  • I want to know if there's any Outlook add-in development kit available? I have a requirement in my enterprise application due to which this add-in is needed. If it's not available then how can I develop add-ins in outlook?

    Thanks

  • Hi Yagya,

    The best way to develop Office add-in is to use web technologies such as HTML+JavaScript.

    I think you can create an Office Add-in by using Visual Studio or any other editor e.g. Visual Studio Code. Please see the following link:

    Hopefully it helps you.

  • JS based addins are much more limited functionality-wise compared to the Windows specific COM addins. If you are only targeting the Windows version of Outlook, COM addins created using VSTO (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/vsto/outlook-solutions?view=vs-2017) might be a much better option.
