How to deploy SuperOffice for Outlook during pilot

How do I add and configure "SuperOffice for Outlook" add-in?

It can be deployed either per Outlook user directly, or centrally by Office365 admin.

In the pilot-version, the Outlook add-in needs to be deployed (added and configured) manually to Outlook - as the pilot-version of our add-in is not added to the Outlook add-in store.
(Only the release version is in the Outlook add-in store). 

The SuperOffice pilot programs are free of charge and covered under the current Terms of Service for your SuperOffice CRM Online installation.

When an app or a service is in pilot, it means that it is still in the testing phase. All new apps and services are first published in a pilot program. By signing up and start using the app during its pilot period, you have by default accepted the Beta Agreement Terms.

  • The pilot version will connect to your tenant in online.superoffice.com.
    • The pilot connection will refer to "Stage".
  • There is no need to carry out updates once the add-in deployed. The cloud to cloud solution will centrally and automatically update everything for you when we publish new pilot versions.
  • Some features and functions may be limited on the version of the CRM Online tenant you connect (authenticate) the add-in to.

Deploy in your own Outlook (per user)

If you already have a version of this add-in installed, we recommend you to remove this first, to avoid having 2 add-ins in your Outlook.

  • Step 1: Log on to Office.com and start Outlook – choose an email, then click '…'
  • Step 2: Click "Get Add-ins"
  • Step 3: Choose "My add-ins",
    click on "Add a custom add-in" and select "Add from URL..."
  • Step 4: Copy/paste in this URL to the dialog: (make sure you get the URL in plain-text, only)
    https://superofficeforoutlook-stage.superoffice.com/manifest/manifest.xml
    and click [OK], then click "Install".

The deployment is now complete. The first time you will need to authenticate towards your tenant (in online.superoffice.com). A new browser dialog will pop up to perform this one-time authentication.

Now you are able to save emails and contact information to SuperOffice.

Experiences on deploying the pilot version :

>> Issues when adding the URL to the XML-file:
This is most likely caused by the "copy-paste" action - where the URL is not copied correctly. Try to copy the URL once more.
