What do apps look like?

Outlook Web App comes with three apps that are available and enabled by default, although they may be turned off for your mailbox. If an app is available and enabled, it will automatically be added to messages you receive that meet the criteria to trigger it. Your administrator may make other apps available.

For example, this message that includes a date and time has triggered both the Suggested Appointments app and the Action Items app.

Selecting Suggested Appointments will open that app, but won’t take you away from the message. As you can see, the app has created a suggestion for an event using the information from the message. To add the event to your calendar, you’d click the Save to Calendar button.

  • Use the settings to remove discardapps, and to refresh the view.

  • The list of apps shows you what apps have been added, where they came from, how they were installed, and if they’re enabled.

  • The information pane includes more information about the selected app. Click Disable to disable an app that you want to turn off. If an app that you do want is available but has been disabled, you would see an Enable link that you could click to enable the app.

  • Access to the Office Store isn’t supported for mailboxes or organizations in specific regions. If you don’t see Add from Office Store as an option on the Outlook Web App options page under Apps > Installed apps > Add, you may be able to install Apps for Outlook from a URL or file location. For more information, contact your service provider.
