"Sorry, something went wrong while initializing the app."–Outlook app error after upgrade to 9.1

Problem: After upgrading a CRM environment from 8.2 to 9.1 we had the problem, that our outlook app showed the users the error: „Sorry, something went wrong while initializing the app.“

Solution: The securityrole of the users needs the new „model-driven App“-privileg under „Customizations“ –> „Model-driven App“ –> „Read“
