Office 2016 has just been released by Microsoft and we are pleased to announce our Xink update as well for 100% Office 2016 support on Windows and Mac.
This blog post is not a review of Office 2016, but I will get you the heads-up on how to upgrade.
Let me describe briefly how to get the upgrade and if you need to do anything at all to support Office 2016.
If you are an Office 2016 Windows user and you have manually installed the Outlook App, you don’t need to do anything at all. Your app has already updated itself, so if you have installed the new Office 2016, then you will experience absolutely no changes to you email signatures.
The only thing you will experience is that the email signatures just follow you from the previous installation, and in fact this is the intention by using the Outlook app – we want to make it as seamless and smooth for you to Xink so you might not even have given your email signatures at thought. They just travel with you no matter where you are. See below screenshot with my email signature in Outlook 2016:
– and if you have installed the Outlook app (client app) unattended as msi:
If you have installed the Outlook app unattended, then you need to Request a new package from us.
You just apply the new package like when you follow any other standard procedure for upgrading software on your Windows PCs in your network. Once you have applied your new package, the email signatures will automatically appear as they used to before, and you are all set.
After having installed Office 2016 on Mac, you need to reset your email signature defaults. Click on the “Update all signatures” button in the Xink app and wait for it to display the message that it has been successfully updated.
Next enter your email signature settings and set the default signatures in Outlook 2016 as you used to with the previous version, and then you’re all set. Your email signatures with logos and everything are all there – just as my example below in Outlook 2016 for Mac
So everything seems to be working smoothly after the upgrade to Office 2016.
