Manually using App Catalog

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

 

NOTE: after completing these steps, you still need to manually enable Custom script and grant permission to APIs. See the relevant documentation pages for details.

App Catalog is a special SharePoint site functioning as a enterprise-wide repository of approved apps. You can upload app files (.app and .sppkg) into "Apps for SharePoint" library within the catalog, making these apps available for installation to all sites.

Read 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], one by one, into the Apps for SharePoint library
    Apps for SharePoint

    NOTE: after uploading .sppkg file, you will be presented with a permission request pop-up. You must agree to grant permissions to the app, otherwise it will not be available.

    You can choose to either make the solution availalbe to all sites (recommended). If this option is not used, the app needs to be added to each site where you plan to use it.
    Note: this only applies to Ultimate Forms Extensions app, all other apps must be added to each site.
  • 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. Some apps will present a permission request pop-up at this point, you must agree before you can continue with installation,
  • Your app is now installed

IMPORTANT: In some site collections, you will find a Deny permission on Add or modify web part pages. This permission makes it impossible to customize forms. For instructions on how to remove this permission, read our blog here.
