Microsoft Outlook Add-in Support Is Ending

Workfront will no longer support the desktop version of the add-in after the 18.2 product release in July.

Now is the time to switch to Workfront for Outlook and become a productivity powerhouse! Instead of providing two distinct add-ins for Outlook, we now provide one universal add-in which can be used in any environment: on a PC, Mac, Desktop, Web, and even on the Outlook mobile app.

When you install the new Workfront for Outlook on any of your environments, your team can get more done, stay organized, and prioritize their work in real time.

Removing Old API Versions

As part of our ongoing efforts to improve our API, we are removing old API versions that are no longer compatible with more recent releases of Workfront.

See the API versioning and support schedule for more information.
