Teem Outlook Add-in Install Methods

This article will guide you through installing and using the add-in. Book spaces based on location, availability, capacity, amenities, and more using the Teem Add-in for Outlook.

The Teem Outlook Add-in lives within your Outlook calendar so that the experience is simple and easy to use for those who are scheduling meetings and want to find a workspace, conference room, space, that works for their meeting. Book spaces based on location, availability, capacity, amenities, and more. 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.

Prerequisites

The Teem Outlook Add-in requires each user to have a user account on Teem.com. We recommend using Office 365 SSO or ADFS to provision users.    

After you’ve checked everything off the list, you’re ready to decide how you want to install the Teem Outlook Add-in.

Installation Methods
There are three different ways to install the Outlook Add-in:

  • Organization Installation

    Teem supports and recommends the Organization installation method for the Outlook Add-in.  When installed, the Teem add-in will show for users in both the Outlook Online or the desktop app. See Teem Outlook Add-In Organizational Install.

    Companies are encouraged to upgrade to the Organization Install method.

     

    ClickOnce Installation

    Important Note: This version of the plugin is no longer supported by Teem. No additional functionality will be added.  

    The article describes the installation and uninstall, see Teem Outlook Add-in ClickOnce Installation.

    Windows Installation

    Important Note: This version of the plugin is no longer supported by Teem. No additional functionality will be added.  

    The article describes the installation and uninstall, see  Teem Outlook Add-in Windows Installation.

Which should I use? 

Teem only supports the Organization Install method for the Outlook Web Add In. Feature work and bug fixes will only be supported on this Teem Add In. Use the following table or flow chart to determine which install method best meets your needs. 

  • How does this impact delegate users? Customers with delegate scenarios can use the ClickOnce or Windows Install method as needed. However, no new feature work or maintenance will be available. Microsoft has made some changes that now allow us to include delegate users in the Web Add In. This feature will be scoped and prioritized for development. 
  • How can I select which user groups have access to the Teem Add In when doing an Org Install? Given recent changes to Microsoft's Organization Install configurations, admins can now manage which users or groups have the Add In Installed. See this documentation for more information.
