OWA add-in on iOS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    I have difficulties with getting owa add-in to work on iOS devices. It does not appear at all.  However it works good in browsers and outlook client.

    Is it neccessary to install add-in from office store to make add-in visible on IOS devices?

    I would be glad if someone could help me with it or gave me direction where to look.

    Thank you in advance.

  • Hello Roman,

    Over there is resource which describes Office Add-in host and platform availability

     Basically add-in on iOS would work in Outlook for Web, browser version. iOS Outlook application is not ready to work with add-ins. If you have an issue with your add-in to be displayed under iOS (in Safari browser), I would suspect you didn't indicate in your application manifest that your app supports devices. Please check your manifest includes the following entries inside <FormSettings/><Form/> ...

          <DesktopSettings>
            <SourceLocation DefaultValue="~remoteAppUrl/AppRead/Home.html"/>
            <RequestedHeight>250</RequestedHeight>
          </DesktopSettings>
          <TabletSettings>
            <SourceLocation DefaultValue="~remoteAppUrl/AppRead/Home.html" />
            <RequestedHeight>250</RequestedHeight>
          </TabletSettings>
          <PhoneSettings>
            <SourceLocation DefaultValue="~remoteAppUrl/AppRead/Home.html" />
          </PhoneSettings>
    


    Hope this helps,

    According to your description, specifically for OWA for Devices, and Outlook Web App running in a browser on smartphones and non-Windows tablet devices, Client requirements are required for testing and running Outlook add-ins. So I suggest that you could check Requirements for running Office Add-ins.

    Thanks for your understanding.
