After you have installed the Brightflag-Outlook, please see the guide Using the Brightflag-Outlook Add-in to learn how to use it here.

You can use this integration if you have Outlook Desktop or Microsoft 365 (Outlook 2013 or later on Windows 10, on Desktop/Laptop).

Depending on your company’s Outlook settings, may need your IT team to allow the add-in to be installed first.


To install the add-in as an Outlook system admin:

  1. In the Outlook admin center, navigate to the Settings > Add-ins.
    • If you don't see the Add-ins page, go to the Settings > Integrated apps > Add-ins page.
  2. Select Deploy Add-in at the top of the page and click Next.
    • The admin center is getting updated to deployment experience with Integrated Apps. Integrated Apps is only visible to global administrators, while for others the old experience still exists. If you don't see the above steps, go to the Centralized Deployment section by going to Settings > Integrated apps. On the top of the Integrated apps page, choose Add-ins.

  3. Select an option and follow the instructions.

  4. If you selected the option to install an add-in from the Office Store, make your add-in selection. You can view available add-ins by categories: Suggested for you, Rating, or Name. Only free add-ins are available from the Office Store. Paid add-ins aren't supported currently. After you select an add-in, accept the terms and conditions to proceed.

  5. On the next page, select Everyone, Specific users/groups, or Just me to specify who the add-in is deployed to. Use the Search box to find specific users or groups.

  6. Select Deploy. A green tick appears when the add-in is deployed. Follow the on-page instructions to test the add-in.

  7. When finished, select Next. If you've deployed to just yourself, you can select Change who has access to add-in to deploy to more users.

If you've deployed the add-in to other members of your organization, follow the instructions to announce the deployment of the add-in. It's good practice to inform users and groups that the deployed add-in is available. Consider sending an email that describes when and how to use the add-in and be sure to include or link this Help content or FAQs for users if they have problems with the add-in.


To install the add-in as an individual:

  1. Log into on Windows.

  2. The next step will depend on the version of Outlook you are using.
    • On Outlook for Web, open an email and select more actions icon -> ... 
    • On Outlook Desktop, the Add-In icon is on the tool panel on the top of the screen.

  3. Navigate to Menu > Get Add-In > My Add-Ins.

  4. Scroll down to select Add a Custom Add-In > From URL.

  5. Paste manifest URL into Search box & click Install.

  6. Click the 'more actions' icon again and the Brightflag logo will appear on the drop-down.
