VTiger Outlook Plugin gets disabled in COM Add-ins

 

If you are an Outlook user – you might have ran into an issue where your Corrensa plugin is disappearing and gets disabled by Outlook. It’s a common issue related to addons which connect to an external database, in this case your vtigercrm, and can take more than few seconds to login/query the database and parse the response.

We believe we have found the problem and fixed it on 03/31/2017. If you haven’t enabled the addon yet – please follow the instructions below and it should start working properly again. Once the addon is enabled – you don’t need to apply any updates –  we have applied necessary updates on the corrensa server side.

For any questions or if you experience the same issue again – please contact us.
