What's the Insightly Sidebar for Outlook?

The Insightly Sidebar for Outlook brings your Insightly data right into your Outlook inbox. It's available for most customers who are using Outlook with an Office 365 Business subscription. See all the requirements.

If you've subscribed to Office 365 through a third party provider, like GoDaddy, the add-in may not be available to you. Please check with your email provider.
