These Add-ins must be used with new Templafy Desktop 1.7.0.x
- Performance improvement. Only sign-in once a day - speedup loading Templafy in Office Apps
In this release we made substantial performance optimizations when staring the Task Pane. This is done by having Templafy Desktop do an invisible SSO signin in the background every 24 hours. If a successful SSO is completed we don't have to sign in when starting the Task Pane, which can be rather slow. This performance optimization requires minimum Templafy Desktop
