Microsoft Teams App Availability/Requests


Microsoft Teams


Are individuals able to use apps / add-ins / integrations within the U-M instance of Microsoft Teams? Why is the app I want to use unavailable?


Approved Apps

Users of U-M Microsoft Teams are able to use the following apps, available by clicking Apps in the lower left of the Teams window:

  • Lists
  • Tasks by Planner and To Do
  • Wiki
  • OneNote
  • SharePoint
  • Forms
  • Power BI
  • SharePoint Pages
  • YouTube
  • Adobe Creative Cloud

There are many built-in apps that do not appear in the Apps section but may be used within Teams, including but not limited to:

  • Activity
  • Files
  • Chat
  • Website
  • Excel
  • Word
  • PowerPoint
  • PDF

Requests for Apps

Apps that require account-level permissions instead of user-level permissions, or that are for services for which U-M does not have a relationship or Data Protection Agreement (DPA), will not be approved. 

Any apps that only require user-level permissions, are for a third party that U-M has a Data Protection Authority (DPA) with, and are not on the list above, may be requested by contacting the ITS Service Center. Please include a thorough description of what the app is and why you want to use it (what is your business case, what does the app allow you to accomplish that you cannot otherwise, etc).
