Support for shared mailboxes
Office 365 shared mailboxes are very useful. Unfortunately, they do not load outlook web add-ins right now: see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/35059067/make-outlook-add-ins-working-with-office-365-shared-mailboxes/35065215
This would be terrific to have add-ins for such mailboxes especially for all CRMs related apps
Hello all! We are happy to announce that the feature was GA on Ignite Nov 8th 2019! Its now part of our 1.8 requirement set!
Windows Builds 16.0.12130.20272+ should have support for it.
Mac: November update.
Online: Already on latest.
I agree, we have several shared mailboxes in our organization the we utilize to create cases/tasks. This feature worked fine with the manually installed plugin but does not work with the add-in created in O365 Admin Portal. Looking forward to hear that this has been fixed.

This is a much-needed feature. I hope we see some progress soon.
Any updates on an ETA for this feature request?
Its almost two years, since the Office Extensibility Team responded with "in Backlog".

Our Web Department shares several mailboxes. The add-ins are very much needed in our organization.

Add us to the list, we make use of shared outlook accounts and could use this add-in.

We also need this urgently. Would be great, if you could prioritize this feature.
Yes please. This is a must in call centre/help desk environment.
This feature is a most for large enterprises which uses Shared Mailboxes for all customer oriented communication.
Jeremy Brewer commented
Having the report message add in work in group boxes and shared mailboxes is important, not just in the individual mailboxes. Hoping you can enhance the tool to include this functionality.

Yes, need this!! Would be great

This is a huge issue for us as well. To work around this issue we have had to build and maintain VSTO COM Add-in versions for all our Outlook add-ins. This complicates rollout at almost all of our enterprise customers!
Holl, Friday night calling me thanks for

If this feature could be added, lots of our issues would be resolved - this would boost the Outlook satisfaction level of our users drastically (especially assistants).
Any update on this?
Hello, is this feature coming anytime soon?
Peter CHEUNG commented
Hello there. How's this now? BTW, it is very strange that the add-in can be opened in shared mailbox on Win 10 Outlook desktop client, but not on Win 7
Is there any update on this request, of is there a workaround to use this in FAT clients?

How is this not already a thing? Oh wait, because people should be using Teams, right? Teams, that cant handle the basics of mass workflow and reporting.
Please add as soon as possible! If you use a shared mailbox in a team you can either open it as a shared folder in your mailbox (BUT THEN THE CATEGORIES DO NOT SHARE) or you can open it as a second mailbox (BUT THEN THE ADD-INS DO NOT WORK). This is kind of sad when you need to use both.
Please add this feature, the use case is really important for our add-in. Our customers use several shared inboxes and public folders for entire departments or functions, and this is exactly where we need our add-in to be available.
