Microsoft Office 365 “Connectors”


Get updates from your favorite apps with Connectors for the inbox.

Earlier this year, Microsoft introduced Office 365 Connectors, which let you deliver relevant interactive content and updates from popular apps and services—such as Trello, Twitter and more—to Office 365 Groups. Microsoft now is bringing Connectors to your inbox (in preview), starting with a rollout to Outlook on the web users with Office 365 mailboxes. With Connectors for the inbox, you will be able to track updates from your project boards, social media accounts and more, right from your email.

The preview will roll out for the following connectors: Asana, Bing News, Bitbucket, GitHub, Twitter, Trello, Wunderlist and Yammer. More services will be added soon.

To access Connectors for the inbox in Outlook on the web, click the Settings gear icon (top right) and select Manage Integrations. Click Connectors and then add the connector you wish to install. The connector will allow you to subscribe to a rich set of notifications and you may configure additional settings based on your preference. Once configured, you will start receiving notifications from the connector.
