New Popups or Toasts appear at the bottom right corner of the screen and do not need the user interaction to ‘OK’ which, would stop workflow.

For all the improved addin features to function correctly, the API needs to updated. When Update 4 is applied, the API will be updated to v1.1.164.0. You can check this at: http://localhost/act.web.api/api/system or https://<Cloud URL>/act.web.api/api/system. The Updates and API web pages at Act.com will be updated after release. 

To apply Update 4 on Desktop - Run Help > Act! Notifications. Please install the update and familiarize yourself with the new Act! addin windows and Address book. Existing Cloud customers will have to uninstall and re-install Office Integration to benefit from the Update 4 improvements.

Here are some additional KB articles around the new re-factored outlook add-in.
