Thank you Guys!

The impetus for the Tutorial was I looked for one and didn't find it. I could find parts over the internet, but wanted something centralized. A collaboration of John, Shawn and Kari got the job done!

Thanks again Guys!!

Good job,
I too always wondered why there wasn't one but never thought to make a tutorial on it here
Microsoft has a few no add-ons or manage add-ons tutorials already but it's nice to see one here
Cheers.
