  • Hi Regina,

    We do have a gadget for Outlook but are still in the process of upgrading it to support Outlook 2016. We do not have a timeline yet but will make sure to inform you once we do. 

    Thank you for using Insightly!

  • I'm buying a new Macbook Air this week and planning on installing MS Office on a yearly subscription basis (is that Office 365??). Will I be able to use Insightly with it the same way as with Google Apps gmail - the buttons to save to Insightly, etc? Will it work for Office 365 Home, or only 365 Business? Thanks for your speedy reply!

  • Hi Mark,

    The tool that enables you the to save emails from your Google Inbox is the Insightly Sidebar or it's predecessor the "Google gadget". 

    It's counterpart on Microsoft Office is the "Outlook Gadget" but unfortunately it does not support the latest version of MS Office yet.

    We do have plans to upgrade and enhance it but i cannot provide you with a timeline at the current moment.

    We will keep you posted.

    Thank you for using Insightly

  • Our Company is also desperate for the new 2016 Outlook gadget, we are not getting the full use out of Insightly without it.  Do you have an update on when this will be available?

  • Hi,

    We have included it in our Road-Map and will be working on a brand new and enhanced gadget in Q1 of next year. 

    Thank you for your patience and for using Insightly!

  • Given you're working on a brand new, enhanced gadget for Outlook 2016 in Q1, will the current Outlook gadget work with Outlook 2016 (even if it isn't packed with new features)?

  • Hi Les,

    Unfortunately it does not. Microsoft made changes to Office 2016 that breaks the current version of the Gadget. This is the primary reason why we have decided to re-work it. 

    We will keep everyone posted on the progress and maybe some of you on this thread would like to be part of the initial beta users.  

    Thank you for using Insightly!

  • Patrick, let Insightly give us a Christmas present with Insightly for Office 2016/365.. For me personal I would be helped if it was also disposable for Office home. Now I only (solely) have to buy it Office for Business for Insightly.

    If I'm right?

  • Hi,

     

    I understand that this is slated for release at some point in Q1 2016. Will this be communicated to customers via email or should we continue to check the forums during Q1?

     

    Thanks.

  • Hello Patrick,

    Can you give a more precise indication when this is going to happen?

    By the way, I now understand that only Exchange 2016 will do. My remark about the necessity of Office 365 for Business is withdrawn.

  • Hi Paul,

    Thank you for clarifying that. As for a time frame, at the moment there are a few unknowns that need to be resolved for a timeline to emerge. I will keep this thread up to speed.

    Have a wonderful holiday!

  • Hi Patrick, 

    Thanks for keeping this thread up to date. Having access to an Outlook 2016/ Outlook Online / Office 365-compatible app for Insightly is important to us as well. 

    FWIW, here is what I am experiencing using Outlook Online for Office 365. From a browser (either Edge or Chrome),

    1. I open an email in my inbox, then click the Insightly link. A "Log in to my Insightly account" button appears. 
    2. An authentication box pops-up. I enter my credentials, and lo and behold, I am in Insghtly in that browser window. 
    3. In the original browser window, an Authenticating.... message appears.
    4. If I refresh, I go through the whole process again. 

    Is this the same behavior others are seeing in this context? 

    I look forward to the timeline. 

    Happy new year!

  • We are moving everyone in our office from Google Apps to MS Office 365 - 2016 next week, will Insightly work yet with Outlook 2016 if not when, thanks?

    Also, does it make a difference what office version we purchase of MS Office 365 for the Insightly users?

  • Hello All

     

    I became aware that the impossibility of Insightly to merge e-mails in Outlook and vice versa in the end does result in the necessity to look for another CRM app. Although the small amount of reactions in this topic does presume it is only a problem for the few, I wonder how many new users of CRM waive  Insightly because of the lack of possibility to synchronise with Outlook.

  • We would also greatly appreciate an Outlook 2016 integration, the ability to save emails to a contact without having to forward to the Insightly mailbox would save a ton of time!

  • Very important for me also, have used salesforce before with an similar app and find it crucial for future use. Although I like insightly a lot, I need to change CRM if it's not working soon.

  • I would also like an update on the progress of the integration. I was told this would be released in Q1 of this year and will need to move back to Salesforce if it is not released soon.

  • How come this isn't done? Its madness that you can only use it with other platforms but not outlook 2016, you competitors are able to offer this service.

  • I was considering to start a paid subscription, but your repeated vagueness of the office 2016 fix is withhalding me to do so.
