Can I build an App that prevents an email from sending unless the user enters information in the App? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all

    I'm completely new to developing for office and just had a very basic question. 

    I trying to understand if an App can be built that follows this process flow:

    1. User clicks 'New Email" within outlook to compose a new email.

    2. User enters all relevant information for email.

    3. User clicks to submit email but the App prevents the email from being sent because the user has not categorised the email withing the App.

    4. User then categorises the email in the App and clicks send again.

    5. Email successfully sends.

    Essentially the app ensures that during the composition of every email, a user categorises it via the App before its sent. The App then eventually sends this off to a server. But most importantly, the email should not be allowed to be sent without categorising it first.

    If this is possible, would this be entirely in JS? Are there any sample apps or tutorials that could be useful?

    Thanks in advance and apologies for the newbie questions!
