Please refer to the official Microsoft Add-In Installation Guide for detailed steps on Add-In installation.

Installing at the Tenant level

Installing at the tenant level allows the admin to expose the add-in by default, saving the users the installation steps, and ensuring that all users have access without issue.


The enablement is quick and easy, taking only about 5 minutes:

  • Log in as the Tenant admin, and navigate to the admin center from the app launcher.

  • In the admin center, go to the Settings > Add-ins page. If you don’t see the Add-in Page, go to the Settings > Integrated apps.

  • On the top of the Integrated apps page, click the Add-ins link.
