Office 365 - Feature Release


 In this article you will learn:

  1. How to get access to the new Outlook 365 (or go back to the previous version)
  2. How to send by Alias in the new Outlook 365 add-in
  3. How to add an Alias in the new Outlook 365 add-in


Note - Depending on your organization's permissions settings, you may need to contact your Outlook 365 admin to approve the new add-in. Eventually, we will require all Bananatag users to upgrade, so we recommend doing so in advance at your convenience. 


With this release, we’ve improved the overall speed, stability and performance of the Outlook 365 add-in. We have also improved the way you send an email via an Alias, whether you’re directly from your Outlook desktop application, or sending through the Bananatag add-in.


How do I get access to the updated Outlook 365 add-in?
