Office Add-in Developer Community (PnP) -- March 2021 update
The Office Add-ins developer platform team has new updates to share this month on Office Add-ins Patterns and Practices. PnP is a community effort, so if you are interested in contributing, see our good first issue list.
This sample uses event-based activation to run an Outlook add-in when the user creates a new message or appointment. The add-in can respond to events, even when the task pane is not open. It also uses the setSignatureAsync API. If no signature is set, the add-in prompts the user to set a signature, and can then open the task pane for the user.
- Check out the code sample: Use Outlook event-based activation to set the signature (preview)
- Check out the docs: Configure your Outlook add-in for event-based activation (preview)
Thank you to our contributors who are actively helping each month with the PnP-OfficeAddins community effort.

PnP is a community effort by developers like you. Check out our good first issue list as a great place to help with some samples. Feel free to contribute to existing samples or create new ones.
Office Add-ins PnP is a Microsoft-led, community driven effort that helps developers extend, build, and provision customizations on the Office platform the right way by providing guidance and help through official documentation and open-source initiatives. The source is maintained in GitHub where anyone can participate. You can provide contributions to the samples, reusable components, and documentation. Office Add-ins PnP is owned and coordinated by Office engineering teams, but the work is done by the community for the community.
