Outlook Addin currently does not support Clipboard API, because containing iframe does not have appropriate permissions. Currently the only other option to copy text is to use deprecated document.execCommand("copy").

This is also an issue in Word, Excel and PowerPoint Online.

Been 3 years since the github issue was reported and Microsoft is sleeping on a basic 2 word fix. Shameful!
