What is the Outlook Add-In?

With the Proxyclick Outlook add-in, you'll save more time and have more options when creating new visits right from your Outlook client.

Our Outlook Add-In is an add-on feature to our feature packs.

How does it work?

The Outlook Add-In allows users to create visits from their Outlook client without using the Proxyclick dashboard.


1. A supported client:

  • Outlook 2016 (Click-to-Run) for Windows

  • Outlook 2016 (MSI) for Windows

  • Outlook 2016 for MacOutlook 2013 for Windows

  • Outlook on the web (Office 365 and

  • Outlook Web App (Exchange 2016 On-Premise)

Unsupported clients are:

  • Outlook Web App (Exchange 2013 On-Premise)

  • Outlook for iPhone

  • Outlook for Android

2. User email exists in at least one Proxyclick location. This concretely means the user sending the meeting request must have a user profile in Proxyclick

3. Subscription add on is active - Calendar

Step by step guide to activating Outlook Add-In

Step 1: Open Outlook and go to Email > Store

Note: If the Microsoft Add-In Store does not appear in Outlook, you must use centralized distribution (see bottom of this page).

Step 2: Click on “Click here to add a custom add-in

Step 3: Click on “Add from URL

Note: If the Microsoft Add-In store does not show “Add by URL” option – You must use centralized distribution (see bottom of this article)

Step 4: Finalize the installation

Confirm the installation.

How to use the add-in

  1. Create a new meeting request in Outlook and click on the Proxyclick button

2. Log in with your Proxyclick username and password. You’ll only need to log in once.

3. Once logged in, you’ll be able to select your Proxyclick location and fill in any custom field.

4. Once the meeting request is sent, the info will appear in the Proxyclick dashboard.

How to enable centralized deployment

You can enable centralized deployment of the Proxyclick Outlook add-in by following this Microsoft How-to-guide .

When asked, chose the “I have a URL for the manifest file” option and provide the appropriate URL:

To install using Exchange server (2013+):

  1. Log in to the Exchange Admin Center (EAC) and select organization > apps (for Exchange 2013) or organization > add-ins (for Exchange 2016).

  2. Select the add icon (+) and then Add from URL.

  3. Supply the Proxyclick Outlook Add-In URL (see above) and then select Next.

  4. The Proxyclick Outlook Add-In will appear in the list

  5. Double click the Proxyclick add-in to edit it.

  6. Select Make this add-in available to users in your organization.

  7. Select the user defaults appropriate to your organization, then save (we suggest “Mandatory, always enabled” for best uptake)

  8. After a re-launch of Outlook, your users will now see the Proxyclick Add-In when in a meeting creation view.

Deploy by File:

If you are unable to deploy the add-in directly via the above URLs, in either Exchange Admin Center or Microsoft 365 Admin Center, you can instead deploy by file. Navigate to the appropriate manifest URL (see above) in the browser of your choice, and save the resulting document as "ProxyclickManifest.xml". You can then upload this file directly in your Admin Center instead of referencing the URL itself.
