Outlook Add-in for Dynamics 365 Business Central: How to set it up

To install the add-in, you need to log into Dynamics 365 Business Central (BC) and search for Assisted Setup.

The two requirements for setting up this add-in are that the global admin has to run it and it has to be centrally deployed. After the setup is complete and those criteria are met, all of your BC users who have access to it and Outlook should be able to use it.
