An improved add-in store experience inside Outlook

Outlook add-ins enable you to access apps and services you most commonly use - whether that's customer relationship management software, a work management service or a translator tool, right in email, so you can accomplish more, faster.

 

Today we are announcing an improved add-in store experience within Outlook, with a redesigned layout, improved search experience and quick start guides, so you can find the right add-ins more quickly and easily. 

 

    1. Redesigned layout and quick start guides helps you to quickly review all available add-ins, with a brief description. To enable an add-in, just click "Add", and the add-in will be installed. You can also access quick start guides that help you get more information on how to use the add-in.

For example, if you type in a keyword like "contact" and the top related add-ins will be available for you at a glance.Search by keyword like "contact" toquickly view top related add-ins at a glanceSearch by keyword like "contact" toquickly view top related add-ins at a glance
