To push the app to users
Go to Settings > Dynamics 365 App for Outlook.
In the Getting Started with Dynamics 365 App for Outlook screen, under Add for Eligible Users (you may have to click Settings if you’re opening this screen for the second or subsequent time), select the Automatically add the app to Outlook check box if you want to have users get the app automatically. If a user has the required privileges and email is synchronized through server-side synchronization, you won’t have to do anything more to push the app to them. For example, if you add the required privileges to a Customer Engagement role, and then assign this role to a new user, they’ll automatically get the app.
Do one of the following:
To push the app to all eligible users, click Add App for All Eligible Users.
To push the app to certain users, select those users in the list, and then click Add App to Outlook.
For better performance l would recommend running this with version 188.8.131.529
