The Highfive Plugin/Add-in Has Disappeared In Outlook

 

Occasionally, Microsoft Outlook may automatically disable any add-in or plugin that it detects potential issues with. For Highfive, this can make the add-in button disappear from your Outlook toolbar unexpectedly.

 

While any add-in is susceptible to this problem, you can follow the steps below to bring your Highfive button back.

  1. In Outlook, go to your Calendar
  2. Click the File button in the top-left of the window.
  3. Select the Info tab. 
  4. Open Slow and Disabled Add-ins.
