This article will guide you through installing and using the add-in. Let’s start with what you’ll need to have set in place first.
- Office 365, Exchange 2007 or later
- Outlook for PC (2007 or later), Outlook for Mac (15.35 or later), or Outlook.office365.com
- Admin access in Exchange/Office 365

Once you’ve checked everything off the list, you’re ready to decide how you want to install the Teem Outlook Add-in.
Organization, ClickOnce, or Windows Installation
There are three different ways to install the Outlook Add-in: Organization, Windows, and ClickOnce Installation. Here are brief descriptions for each method:
- Organization Installation can be easily deployed and managed across an organization from one place to all or a select set of users. Updates are automatically pushed out. Microsoft also uses the Organization method for their iOS, Android, and Mac deployments, and it's where Microsoft will focus their development.
- ClickOnce Installation must be installed and removed individually on each device by the user. For this installation, updates are pushed whenever the calendar application is opened.
- The Windows Installer can also be deployed to all or a select set of users and managed from one place like Organization Installation. However, updates need to be pushed out manually for every update.
See the list and flow chart below to determine what installation method works best for your organization:
For Organization Installation:
Outlook for Mac (15.35 or later)
Exchange 2013 and above, including Office 365

Note: Our Teem Outlook Add-in can also be shared on a group by group basis using this method as well.
Note for ClickOnce Installation: This add-in is a Microsoft VSTO application. As such it, requires Visual Studio Tools to run.
This installation method is done via ClickOnce. ClickOnce must be installed on each PC by the user on their designated user account. To deploy to an organization, an administrator can send out an email with a link to the download of the OutlookPluginSetup.exe. From there, users can download and run through the setup.
The installation instructions are the same for both the end user and administrators since you must be logged in to the user's account.
