Topic Last Modified: 2013-06-17

You can install or remove apps for Outlook for your organization by using the EAC or the Shell.

NoteNote:
By default, after you install an app for your organization, the app is available for all users in your organization. After installation, you can use the EAC or the Shell to make the app optional or required for your users, and to specify whether you want the app to be enabled or disabled. For information about how to change the default settings for an app, see Manage user access to apps for Outlook. To limit availability of apps to specific users in your organization, you must use the Shell. For more information, see Manage user access to apps for Outlook.
