Sharing contract with Other MSFT Apps

    General discussion

  • I'm trying to think thru product strategies and wondering if Outlook will ultimately have a share contract with other Windows 8 applications. Any insight that anyone can provide?

  • Hi Chris,

    Applications that support the Share contract should not depend on specific applications being an available Share Source or Target.  There is no guarantee that the user installed it and  and there is no way for an application to query information about other Share apps on the system.  Users can have a wide variety of applications that can be shared to from 3rd parties including mail, social, and editing apps.  Application developers are encouraged to provide data in multiple formats when supporting the Share contract for this very reason. 

    Thanks.
