For more information, see Install or remove apps for Outlook for your organization.

This example installs the Contoso CRM app manifest.xml from a URL on the Contoso corporate network. The Exchange server must be able to reach the target URL. This app is installed as an organization app and made available to a specific set of users in the organization, and is enabled for those users by default.

New-App -OrganizationApp -Url https://Server01.Contoso.com/apps/ContosoCRMApp/manifest.xml -ProvidedTo SpecificUsers -UserList "user1,user2,user3,user4,user5" -DefaultStateForUser Enabled

For more information, see Install or remove apps for Outlook for your organization.

If the app is enabled for the entire organization, users can activate the new app when viewing mail or calendar items within Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Office Outlook Web App. If an installed app isn't enabled, users can enable the app from Outlook Web App Options. Similarly, if an app is installed, an administrator can enable the app from the Exchange Administration Center or by using the Enable-App or Set-App cmdlet.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Apps for Outlook" entry in the Recipients permissions topic.
