Hoxhunt button: Special - Adding Hoxhunt add-in manually to Outlook

Important: If your Exchange Administrator has already deployed Hoxhunt add-in for you centrally, the instructions below won’t work. Please contact your IT support or Hoxhunt support at support@hoxhunt.com for further guidance.

 

Step 1: Access Get Add-ins pane

There are three ways to access the correct pane where Outlook add-ins can be installed manually.

 

Option A: via desktop Outlook

1. If you are using desktop Outlook application on Windows, select File > Manage Add-ins.

2. If you are using desktop Outlook application on MacOS, select Tools > Get add-ins.

 

Option B: via Outlook sideload

1. Navigate to https://aka.ms/olksideload.

 

Option C: via Outlook on the Web

  1. Log in to Outlook on the Web (https://outlook.office.com/mail/) or the URL where Outlook Web Application is hosted for your organisation.
  2. Select any email, and then click on three dots symbol.
    NOTE:
    There are multiple three dots menus available. Select the one closest to your email's subject and toolbar.

  1. Enter the following URL and select OK > Install.

https://officejs.hoxhunt.com/api/v1/manifest/default/manifest.xml

 

Troubleshooting

If you are unable to add the add-in via URL due to an error (error loading the manifest etc.), try the following:

1. Paste the manifest.xml (above) URL to your web browser. A standard XML output will be displayed.

2. Save the XML output via File > Save as... > manifest.xml.

3. Repeat Step 2 above but instead of selecting Add from URL..., select Add from File...

 

If you get an error telling you are not authorised to install custom add-ins, you cannot use this method. Please contact your Exchange Admin or IT Helpdesk for assistance.
