Automatically Install Application (from Catalog) within Product

We have a situation where an Outlook add-in doesn't work unless you delete the app and then re-install the app. This is for macOS so you don't need to do the full uninstall. We setup a product for it to remove the app and that worked fine. How can we automatically re-install Outlook from the Catalog? If I go into the user's device in AirWatch and then click the ' Install'  button next to the application it works fine. But I want to automate it for all the users.

If you want to push to all users only one time: under apps, select the check box to the left of the app, then managed devices. then select your users. From there, select your action. FYI (the command will be sent to the devices, and as long as the devices are 'Active' and, if needed, you have the a valid APN (for apple devices).


If you want to make this change permanent, then under apps, select the check box to the left of the app, and then Assign. Under the Assignment model, change from On Demand to 'Auto'.


As always, make sure that you understand the changes you are making.

Is there a way through to add it as a command behind the Outlook delete step? So it's more seamless? So, delete outlook and then install Outlook from the catalog.
