Currently there's no Option for more than 1 Add-In from Outlook. It would be great if the integration of Business Central can allow more than one Add-Ins implemented in order to better accommodate business needs.

Thank you for this suggestion! Currently this is not on our roadmap. We are tracking this idea and if it gathers more votes and comments we will consider it in the future. Best regards, Business Central Team

I asume this is related to BC Saas (cloud)?


This option is actually mentioned here Business Central Add-in for Outlook FAQ - Business Central | Microsoft Docs but it is not documented very well and I'm not sure it actually works. It is a little complicated as the solution seems to be to edit the xml files that are used for deployment of the add-in.


Now you don't need different add-ins for different companies within the same BC tenant, so I guess the idea is to have different add-ins for different BC tenants,


I think a problem is that you usually have a company in a tenant related to the companies domain (like CompanyName.com) ant the users are connected to the same domain, so a users Microsoft id/email/username is something like User.Name@CompanyName.com.

So the user opens outlook with an account for User.Name@CompanyName.com and when activating functionality in the add-in, then outlook will log into Business Central with this user.

Now maybe it would be nice if this same user could also use the add-in for an other company with domain OtherCompany.com, but User.Name@CompanyName.com is not a valid user in the BC/tenant for domain OtherCompany.com.


So maybe I don't exactly understand how this works, but it seems to be to be logically impossible, because the same userid (outlook account) cannot be a valid user in two different BC tenants (two different domains)?
