Microsoft Office applications can disable add-ins that behave unexpectedly while they are being loaded. If an application does not load your add-in, the application might have hard disabled or soft disabled it. It’s important to note there are known issues at this time with Office ’13 and above, and the Vote add-in not being available or not working as expected. We are aware of these issues and continue to work with Microsoft to gain compatibility again for newer versions.
