Shared Mailboxes with the Outlook add-in

Our users love the new Outlook add-in. We use Shared Mailboxes heavily and users want the same ability to interact with those as they do with their personal inbox. 

 

It would be great if the add-in can handle a connection to a separate account to allow this to work.

Hi Tim. Great question! Sorry for the delay, we were looking into this for you.
 
Currently, this is not yet possible for shared mailboxes to use add-ins. This is a limitation on Outlook's side and we can see that a request to change this has been suggested on their forum.
 
Any other questions, let me know. Thanks for posting 🙂

@Stephen, I just came across this issue as well. Do you know if there has been a resolution? Loving Shared mailboxes, not loving that Wrike won't work in them. 

 

I use Outlook PC desktop. Logged into my account at OWA and the Wrike add-in is working there.

Is there an update on this request?  The lack of support for a shared mailbox is making it difficult to implement a re-engineering of an intake process.

As per Outlook's add-in API requirement set 1.8 (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/dev/add-ins/reference/objectmodel/requirement-set-1.8/outlook-requirement-set-1.8) it is possible for the add-in creator (wrike) to activate their add-ins in the shared mailbox.

Please get your developers to activate the wrike add-in to also work within the outlook shared mailbox environment. This would be a huge benefit to many organisations including ours.

Wrike Devs: This is a must do! With so many shared mailboxes, having the Wrike add on work with them would be a huge game changer.

A much needed feature to connect to shared mailboxes, as our team utilizes at least 6 shared mailboxes. Disappointing, as this integration is what first attracted me to Wrike.
