We have a couple of office 365 centralized deploy add-ins which does not appear on top on the ribbon, it hides. Ex: report phishing, salesforce, etc. Is it possible to move an add-in up the order in the Home (Mail) or at least pin the add-in so it appears on the top using GPO?

Example: Grammarly add-in to be moved next to New in the snapshot.

    Hi @Sabarivasan N ,

    According to my research, I couldn't find any GPO settings to manage the customize Ribbon. In this case, we may need to set the order manually in Outlook.

    By the way, if other users wouldn't like to set it manually, as an alternative, we could try to export the customized ribbon file from a user and import it to other users via "Import and Export" option like below:

    Hope that would be helpful to you.
