Inclusion has been the hot topic nowadays and we would like to have companies create a workplace environment where there's no discrimination, factions or false sense of exclusivity
What it does
The Hey! Outlook™ Addin is a Social-enablement tool for Office 365 users. It empowers the workplace to have an “inclusive” environment by allowing other people from your office to send Open and Public invitations for a quick discussion to collaborate, discuss and share ideas face-to-face.
How we built it
We built it using tools such as Visual Studio Code taking advantage of the Outlook Addin platform and utilizing the Microsoft Graph APIs (Contacts and People)
Challenges we ran into
Learning and developing authentication in Office Addin has always been a pain! It took more than half of our time. Wish it could have been easier to use.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
It's our first time to develop an Outlook addin and we're proud of what we made! We're also proud that hopefully someday our addin can make a difference inside office worker's lives.
What we learned
A lot of Patience and Never Give Up.
What's next for Hey!
Hopefully, it wins so we can have funds to take it to the next level!
