I just went to the Microsoft Ignite event in Charlotte and one of the presenters created a tab that had his Outlook Client email in there.  Does anyone know how to do that?

In a Channel, add a Tab, select Website and enter in your OWA url (https://outlook.office365.com). If looking to add as a Personal App, you'll run into iframe issues: https://realtimeuc.com/2018/03/teams-personal-app-iframe/.

Thank you that worked

Hi Michael,

 

Would it also be possible to have a tab only showing the emails you forward to your team channel?

I am thinking about the get email address so you have all emails gathered in one place.

I have seen in a recent demo the actual Outlook client (not OWA) embedded in a tab - any ideas how that has been done? is it a connector or something?

 

Where was the demo and do you know who the presenter was?

It was via our account manager
Can we add a tab to the TEAMS sidebar menu for our outlook email like we have for the calendar (meetings tab)? I keep resisting using TEAMS because I have to switch back and forth to email and teams. Also, a bigger popup for chats in teams like we get with skype for business would really help - we miss a lot of messages from each other. Can I set that up in settings somewhere?
You could technically set up your webmail in a website tab! It doesn’t work great though! Try it out..every other member will get to their owa too..

There’s no way to customize the banner currently!

@adam deltinger what are the steps to do what you are saying?  Thanks :)

Open your webmail, copy the url,
Go to the tab bar in Teams and click the +
Choose website and paste the link

@adam deltinger  I want to add this on the teams client, not a channel, if that is possible  :)

 

@adam deltinger hi again - there is no plus sign in the tabs bar - do you think our administrator turned it off?  I have a "more apps" and a tabs menu under the Store... 

No, this can’t be done!
Check with the owner of the team if they restricted to add tabs

@adam deltinger 

Thank you Adam, I found this - thank you!  I did add our email under a channel in a team.  We are trying this, but you are right -it's not the best function.

 

What we really want is the ability to add the Outlook Email app along the left side of the Teams client that loads our email in the same way the client has "Activity" "Chat" Meetings" "Calls" "Files"  Apps  - is this possible?

@tyjrschl  Unfortunately no! You can customize this panel now with app policies from the teams admin center, but there are no email apps like this currently, and im not sure there will ever be :\
