Office add-in ios, communicate popup and add-in RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    To acces my add-in, you have to login via a external link. On desktop and browser it opens in the add-in. But If i try the same on an iPad. I get a popup to login. I see other apps are using the same method.

    But how can I communicate between the popup and my add-in? (tokens etc)

    Is there a special method for iPad only and not for the browser or desktop version?

  • Hi Emiel,

    Based on the description, you were developing an Office add-in which use the external link. As far as I know, we need to specific the domains for the external link to open the same window in the Office add-in. Did you specific it?

    If yes, it seems that this issue is relative to the specific product. I suggest that you contact the Office developer team via link to report this issue.
