Outlook Trim addin keeps disapearing


We have users here on laptops that take their laptops home with them.

I like to know is there a way to make the trim outlook addin stop disappearing when a users takes home the laptop and when they come back to the office and connect up their laptop.

What is the version of TRIM and Office you are running.


Also, are they connecting via VPN when the users connect outside of the office?

Hi Armadale,


There is nothing out-of-the-box that will allow the add-in to automatically re-activate and de-activate when moving from office to home and back.


However you can create a secondary add-in which on the intial loading of Outlook checks if the TRIM server is available.

If it's available, it can activate the HP TRIM Add-in, if unavailable, it can de-activate the HP TRIM Add-in.

You would need to develop this yourself though. (Or contact a TRIM Business Partner / Consultant for help)


It really should be a feature of the default integrations, but HP hasn't done this yet. :)

You're an ideas man Grundy :P
Would likely be better as a startup app so can do all integration pieces at once. Instead of addins that must be loaded into each app.
