Pinnable Task Pane Support for Mac and OWA
The Pinnable Task Pane is a great piece of functionality, because as the user is navigating through their Inbox it is cumbersome to have to click a button to open an add-in for each email.
Support for this (at least as per the documentation) is limited only to Outlook 2016 for Windows.
This Idea captures the work to enable this functionality for both OWA and the Mac desktop client.
Thanks for the suggestion!
It is our goal to provide this functionality in Mac and OWA as well. OWA for business users should now have this support.

Great would be good to see this in the Mac desktop Outlook client, any ETA on this, however how broad please?
This is really great! Will the functionality be a part of CU10 to the On-Premises versions?

Hint: The Function's are limited for Outlook 2016 for C2R Installation. If you have MSI Installation (actuall default for all Customer's we have seen in our Country) the Mailbox-APi is on Version 1.4 (C2R is 1.6).
--> No chance to integrate/port your functionality in case of that lack
Pinnable Task Pane for OWA would help also to debug more easy the issues relevant to Pinnable Task Pane in Windows Outlook client.
