Adding FYI Add-ins as a User from within Office and Outlook

The following are the steps required to add the FYI Add-ins from Microsoft Outlook and Office as a user. This can be used, for example, if you or a small group of users want to initially trial FYI, or this may only be needed on a computer you are using at home.

To make the apps available for all users, the Microsoft 365 administrator for your practice can add the FYI for Office and the FYI for Outlook apps to your Practice Microsoft 365 account. Refer to Adding the FYI Add-ins to Your Practice Microsoft 365 Account.
