App Installation

NOTE: Do not attempt to deploy most apps as a Shared app, as it will not add the necessary ribbon buttons and content types to the host site.

There are two ways you can install an app in SharePoint 2013+ / SharePoint Online:

  • Install directly from Office Store
  • Install from the internal App Catalog (recommended)

NOTE: On-premises SharePoint 2013+ customers will be able to use only some of the apps. Provider-hosted apps, such as Ultimate Forms, will not work for those customers. On-premises versions of the products should be used instead.


Installing from Office Store

NOTE: we recommend installing through your Enterprise App Catalog and not through Office Store. For instructions, scroll down to the next section.

You can search the store directly from your SharePoint site.

To add an app directly from your site:

  • Go to your site in the browser
  • Click on the cog in the top right corner to open the site actions menu
  • Click on "Add an app"
    Add an app
  • In the Quick Launch menu on the left click on SharePoint Store
    SharePoint Store
  • In the search box in the top right corner enter the app name, such as "Infowise Smart List Pro" and click Enter.
  • The app will appear in the search result, click on it
  • Click on Add It button on the app page
  • Accept the app's permission request
  • Your app is now installed


To add an app directly from our site, click on "Get from Office Store" under Download. In the app page, click on the Add button, then follow the instructions on the next page.

Store page

NOTE: some apps require an additional app, Infowise App Support to be download and installed from our site to be functional. In this case, it would make sense to simply download and install the original app from our site, so you won't need to additional support app.


Installing from internal App Catalog


App Catalog is a special SharePoint site functioning as a enterprise-wide repository of approved apps. You can upload .app package files into a special library within the catalog, making these apps available to all sites.

You can download the app packages (.app and .sppkg files) and upload them to your internal App Catalog.

Read here for information on setting up your app catalog on premise or here for information on setting your app catalog in SharePoint online.

  • Download .app file from the product page on our site. If the file[s] comes as a zipped archive, extract before the next step.
  • Drag or upload the file[s] to the Apps for SharePoint library
    Apps for SharePoint
  • Go to the site where you want to add the app
  • Click on the cog in the top right corner to open the site actions menu
  • Click on Add an app
  • In the Quick Launch menu on the left side, choose From Your Organization
  • Click on the app you want to add and accept app's permissions request
  • Your app is now installed

NOTE: Some Infowise apps can be installed both in Office 365 and on premises, while other apps will only work in Office 365. Find more information on the product page.

NOTE: Ultimate Forms now comes as a zipped file containing two apps: Ultimate Forms itself and Ultimate Forms Extensions, the latter providing support for Modern Experience sites. Unzip the file and upload each package individually, then add each to your site.
