Feature Details - 

The security of your business data is important to us. Administrators are in control of how Office add-ins for Business Central are deployed to individuals, groups, or the entire organization, by using best-of-breed compliance and policy settings in Microsoft 365.

Explanation -

  • Excel add-in The new Centralized Deployment assisted setup guides administrators through the manual task of configuring Microsoft 365 to deploy add-ins to select users within the organization, or when individual acquisition from the Office Store has been turned off.

  • App for Teams A new Centralized Deployment assisted setup guides administrators through the manual task of configuring Teams admin center to deploy the Business Central app for Microsoft Teams to all users or select users within the organization.

  • Outlook add-ins The Centralized Deployment assisted setup for Outlook add-ins replaces the earlier Business Inbox setup wizard. 

Steps To Setup Outlook add-ins.

  • Open Assisted Setup.

  • Click Next and Then Select Download and Continue.
  • Select the Addin that you would like.

  • This will download a zip file which will have xml for both Add-in. Extract the Folder.

  • Open Microsoft 365 Admin Center and Navigate to Integrated Apps. Select Upload Custom Apps.

  • Select xml file downloaded in Previous Steps.

  • Then Choose Type of Users where you would like to enable this add-in.

  • Accept Permission Request.

  • Deployment will complete after some time, but to have this available in outlook will take few hours.
