The Systam Outlook Add-in can be installed either manually or distributed automatically to a larger group from the Admin Center.


Manual installation for one user:

 

  • In the Outlook E-mail Home view, click the orange Get Add-ins button from the toolbar.
  • In the Add-ins menu that opens, click My Add-ins in the left bar. Under Custom Addins, press the Add a Custom Add-in button.
  • Click Add from file and paste the manifest.xml address sent by Systam here. Install the Add-In.
  • The add-in is now ready for use. When creating a new meeting, a button with the Systam logo should appear on the toolbar.



Installation from the Admin Center:

 

  • Log in to the Microsoft 365 Admin Center and look for Integrated apps on the Settings tab. At the top of the page is Upload custom apps. Select Outlook Product under Outlook, and at the Provide link to manifest file, paste the manifest.xml address sent by Systam.
  • At this point, select whether you want to install the Add-in for the entire organization or only for specific user groups. Accept the permissions requested by the Add-In and press Finish Deployment.
  • It can take up to a few hours for the Admin Center to push the Add-in for all users.
  • When you restart Outlook, the Add-in should appear.


Using the Add-in:

 

When booking a meeting from your calendar, press the Systam Visitor Management button on the toolbar and select a target/destination for the visit. When you select an item, its invitation address appears as a single recipient. Then fill in the rest of the information for the meeting. Sending the meeting invitation adds the details of the visit to the Systam Visit service, and those involved in the invitation will also receive a pre-arrival message the day before the visit.
