This section will guide you to create a template for the Microsoft Outlook item, Contacts, and to work with it in Microsoft Outlook.
We used an example in this section based on an OData service called Contact, shipped with Enterprise Procurement Model (EPM). SAP ships EPM with SAP Gateway for demo purposes.
The service, Contact, is provided by SAP, and your SAP administrator may be using the same name at the time of service activation, however, the name may vary in your SAP Gateway system.
Contact the SAP administrator to activate the service and get the exact service name. You can also select any OData feed which can be modeled as a Microsoft Outlook Contact entity.
To create the Contacts template, proceed as follows:
|User Properties||Outlook Properties|
To deploy the add-in in another machine, you have to package the template as detailed in the Creating an Installer for a GWM Visual Studio Add-In section.
When you choose to work with the Contacts folder in Microsoft Outlook, you can create add-ins for business representations that are best suited to be represented as a Contacts, for example, CRM Contact, Account, ERP Employees, Business Partner, and many more.To run the deployed add-in, from the Microsoft Outlook ribbon, choose the add-in name in the menu (as created in Microsoft Visual Studio).
