Installing the Outlook Add-In – Instructions for Administrators

IT administrator instructions for deploying the Propel Outlook add-in to all end users.

  1. Open the Office admin panel:
    Make sure you are signed in as an administrator.
  2. From the main menu, click Show all.
  3. From the expanded menu, click Settings and then Add-ins.

    This opens the Add-ins screen.
  4. On the Add-ins screen, click Deploy Add-In.

    This begins the add-in deployment process.
  5. Click the Next button to begin.
  6. Click Upload custom apps.
  7. Choose I have a URL for the manifest file and enter the following URL exactly:
    (Make sure to include https:// even though it already appears in the gray box.)
    Then, click Upload.
  8. Choose which users should receive the Propel add-in and choose your preferred deployment method.

    - For users, either select Everyone or specify individual users or a group. Creating a group that includes all users of Propel may be the most convenient option. Consult the Office documentation if you need help creating groups.
    - We recommend using the Fixed deployment method.

    Once you have assigned users and chosen your preferred deployment method, click Deploy.
  9. You should now see a deployment confirmation message, and Propel should appear in your list of installed add-ins.


Congratulations! The Propel Outlook add-in is now deployed! It can take up to 12 hours for users to see the Propel add-in in their Outlook ribbon, and this is normal.
