Manage apps using the new Apps site (SharePoint Online)

SharePoint Online, SharePoint Development Services

From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin MC329484 · Published Feb 11, 2022

Message Summary

The new Apps site (previously known as the App Catalog) will help you as a SharePoint or global admin to quickly get started distributing custom apps or acquiring independent software vendor (ISV) apps in your tenant to extend functionalities of SharePoint, Teams, and Viva Connections. You can use the new Apps site to store and distribute solutions in a streamlined and modernized experience.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 88844.

When this will happen:

  • Targeted Release (selected users and organizations): We expect this to begin rolling out in late February and expect the rollout to be completed by early March.
  • Standard Release: We expect this rollout to begin in mid-March and expect that rollout to be completed by mid-April.

How this will affect your organization:

The first step is to create the Apps site if it has not already been created. We will create the new Apps site for your organization when an admin goes to the SharePoint admin center > More features > Apps > Open or when site owners create app requests from the SharePoint Store. It takes only a few minutes for the site to be created.

  • To distribute a custom app to your tenant: On the Manage apps page, admins can upload and enable custom apps built by in-house developers or organizations they trust.
  • To acquire more apps from the SharePoint Store: Admins can browse and install apps that meet business objectives directly from the SharePoint Store. Alternatively, admins can review the requests from site owners and choose to approve or decline.

Note: App requests and links to the SharePoint Store are not available in the GCC, GCC-High, and DoD environments.
