Submissions include a new Microsoft Office 365 Add-in (extension) ?

Does this mean we have to create one new Microsoft Office 365 Add-in (extension) or do we have to use already existing Add-in.? Please point me to Add-ins lists if it is? Sorry I don't know much about this, clarification would help.

    Great question, Pavana!

    The requirement is to create a NEW Microsoft Office 365 Add-in (extension) which also utilizes at least one of the following Microsoft Office 365 APIs (Mail, Calendar, Files, Photos/Video, or Contacts - or Microsoft Graph).

    Here's some info on Add-ins for you: https://msdn.microsoft.com/library/jj220060.aspx

    Does OneNote API count ?

  • Moderator   •   almost 3 years ago

    Hi Zhenyu,

    Thanks for your question. Per January's rules amendment the creation of an Add-in AND API usage is no longer required (http://msoffice365.devpost.com/updates/4677-rules-requirement-change-hint-it-s-easier-now).

    The requirement is now:
    "Create a working software application that will help users increase their productivity in any area of life (personal, professional, media management, finance, social, lifestyle, etc.).

    Submitted software applications must be either a working Microsoft Office 365 Add-in (extension) OR must integrate one or more of the following Microsoft Office 365 APIs: Mail, Calendar, Files, Photos/Video, or Contacts (each an “Application”) via use of an individual Microsoft Office 365 API or Microsoft Graph (https://graph.microsoft.io/)"

    So OneNote API does not count on its own, but with the addition of one of the following Microsoft Office 365 APIs: Mail, Calendar, Files, Photos/Video, or Contacts, or Microsoft Graph, you should meet the requirement.

    Is it okay to build an Outlook Add-in for the desktop version of Outlook in C#?

    Hi Kai,

    There are no requirements around what language you need to build your Add-in with. So if you build an Add-in with C# - that's fine with us!

    Best,
    Serena
