Outlook Add-In

    • Outlook Addin
    • Version
    • 2.2
    • Release date
    • November 15, 2018

     

    Improvements

    • It is now possible to send files that contain a "+" character in their name.
    • Quick Select: when the auto-completion is launched, we can now display up to 10 suggestions.
    • The "Connection settings" popup has been simplified. Now, you will just have to enter the URL of your Inova application and the add-in will detect your authentication mode. If you are in SSO, you will be automatically connected. Otherwise, your credentials will be requested.

    Bug fixes

    • Some users were repeatedly prompted throughout the day for credentials or were not able to connect even though the correct credentials were entered. These issues are now fixed.
    • Quick Select: when clicking on the refresh button, the list is now correctly updated with the newly created objects.

    Technical Improvements

    • Centralized Installation : the management of the SSO mode has been improved/simplified.

    Bug fixes

    • When using the "Quick Select" or "Link to..." features, it was no longer possible to load the next results of the list via the "next..." button. This issue is now fixed.
    • We followed Microsoft's suggestions for improving the Outlook add-in performance metrics (startup, shutdown...) and thus reduce the likelihood of seeing the addin disabled by the add-in disabling feature (resiliency logic).

    Known issue and solution

    • Despite the improvements we continually make, the add-in can still be disabled in rare cases.
      Should this happen to you, the first step is to check if the add-in is disabled and/or inactive. Then, if it still does not work, please try to use the .reg file provided here.
