In this article I will demonstrate how to use a regular expression to provide dynamic contexual assignment of an Outlook add-in. Using that regular expression we will be able to identify the necessary information to link the Add-In to some external dynamic workflow functionality.
During the Collab365 presentation I demonstrated a workflow application which was a simple vacation request approval. In that demonstration I showed how we are able to detect a unique key inside of an email and then use that value to open the workflow within the add in (https://youtu.be/t6kRFV09TYs?t=1950).
In previous articles I have demonstrated how to create a contextual add-in and in this article we will look at how we can take that up a notch and make the context dynamic and useful.
I am going to demonstrate the capability in the context of a napacloud add-in so that you are able to work along.
