Manage and deploy Microsoft 365 Partner Apps from Microsoft 365 admin center

From Microsoft Corporation

MC224519, Stay Informed, Published date: Oct 19, 2020Admin impact, New feature

We are launching a new feature for Global Admins to directly discover, purchase, acquire, deploy and manage Microsoft 365 Apps developed by Microsoft partners from one single location. Previously, to deploy Office add-ins, Web apps and Teams app would have required you to go to 3 different portals. Now we are removing this fragmentation and allowing you to deploy from one single location. Additionally, we help you discover the different integrations available across Microsoft 365 once you start deploying an app.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 60203

When this will happen

  • Targeted release:  begin rolling out mid to end October
  • Standard release: begin rolling out early November and expect to complete by end of December.

How this will affect your organization:

Once available we will start with Azure Active Directory web apps, Office Add-ins, and Teams apps and will be expanding with more workloads gradually.

You can access this new feature from “Settings -> Integrated apps” which has replaced the “Settings -> Add-ins “ tab for Global Admins only. 

What you need to do to prepare:

Consider updating your documentation and training as appropriate.
