    Continued support for Outlook add-in (Dynamics 365 for Outlook)

    "In June 2017, we announced the deprecation of Dynamics 365 for Outlook (otherwise known as the "Outlook add-in") and the plan to replace it with Dynamics 365 App for Outlook. The deprecation announcement meant that although Dynamics 365 for Outlook would continue to be supported, it would be removed in Dynamics 365 version 10.0.

    Since this announcement, we have received overwhelming feedback from customers, partners, and the Dynamics community around the need for the Outlook add-in. Additionally, we understand that some feature gaps in Dynamics 365 App for Outlook prevent it from being a viable replacement for the Outlook add-in. As a result, we are reversing the deprecation of Dynamics 365 for Outlook.

    We want to enable customers who are on older versions of Dynamics 365 to be able to upgrade and not lose core functionalities that their business has come to rely on."
