How to autorun Office 365 add-in RRS feed

  • Question

  • How can I automatically run Office 365 Outlook add-in? 

    I have managed to create a add-in and it appears into Outlook nicely, however user needs to execute add-in manually by clicking the Add-in name. I would like to execute my Add-in automatically when user reads email.

    I have posted this question also in stackoverflow:
