Customizing the Ribbon Programatically with Apps for Office RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    1.Is there are any way to customize the Office 2013 programatically
    as a Office App using Visual Studio 2013(like adding extra menu tabs,icons etc)?
    The Office App needs to be published in Azure website. VSTO plugins help tp customize
    ribbon but they could not be published in Azure so we are developing a Office app that can be
    published to Azure and we are looking to customize  the ribbon as well. Please let us know if there is
    any way.

    2. If it is not possible to customize the ribbon, please let us know if there are any alternative options
    to customize the ribbon. Currently, we develop Office Add ins and install them in a shared network drive
    so that anyone who installs them from the location gets the customized ribbon and the added functionality in the Word.
