The TonicDM Outlook add-in can be pushed to staff based on groups using the Centralized Deployment feature in the Office 365 admin center.

When logged in as an Office 365 Admin:

  • Navigate to the Admin Center in Office 365.

  • Click SettingsIntegrated AppsAdd-insDeploy Add-In.

    

    

Enter the URL of the manifest: https://tonicdm.com/outlook/office365.xml

Be sure to include the https:// even though the field indicates you don't need it!

   

    

Select who should have access. We recommend choosing Everyone at least until you know the deployment is working. 

Note: historically nested groups have not worked: the users must be members of the top-level group.

For Deployment Method select whether the add-in should be mandatory or optional. Optional would allow staff to remove the add-in from their Outlook. We recommend choosing Fixed.

    

    

The add-in will not appear immediately. We've found that it takes several hours for the add-in to appear in the Web version of Outlook (outlook.office.com) and between several hours and several days to appear in the installed version of Outlook.

    

    

The add-in will now be listed in the Office 365 Admin Center. This is where you can modify settings, for example which staff the add-in is being deployed to.
