To deploy the FreeBusy Outlook add-in at scale for an organization that uses Office 365, use the Centralized Deployment feature in the Office 365 Admin Portal. Use it together with the FreeBusy add-in manifest published on our website (aka side-loading), rather than the manifest from the Office Store, because:
- It’s the fastest way for you to receive the latest version
- It lets you control updates with granularity to specific users
- If problems come up in your environment we can add tracing/logging specific to your users, which lets us get to a root cause faster.
Choose the option “I have a URL for the manifest file”
Enter URL of the form https://freebusy.io/outlook/[your email domain].xml
For example, if you have emails of the form [email protected] then the URL would be https://freebusy.io/outlook/metropolitancloud.info.xml
