Export from Community Plan and Import to Microsoft Team

I developed an app in the Community Plan with Dataverse, and would like to export the app (with Dataverse tables) and import to Microsoft Team. Is it doable? If so, how?

Hello, @snowfox 

 

It is possible to import an app created on make.powerapps.com into Microsoft Teams. 

  • In make.powerapps.com select More Actions (...) on the application you've created and then select 'Add to Teams'
  • In Microsoft Teams, click on the Apps button on the bottom of the left panel
  • Select 'Upload a custom app'
  • From there, you should be able to import the file for the application into Teams which was downloaded in step one

This link explains the process in full detail: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/teams/embed-teams-app#:~:text=Download%20the%20app%20Sign....

 

Please let me know if that answers your question. I'm happy to help if you continue to run into an issue, or if I've misunderstood your inquiry. 

 

Warm regards, Haider

Thanks @haidernadeem !

I was able to download the app from Community Plan as you instructed, but don't see "Upload a custom app" in the Team. I read the document that you provided too, and I don't have that option in the dropdown. Does it mean the admin disabled it?

@snowfox I've looked into this further, and it looks like in order to upload an app you must either be the team owner, or the team owner must give you permissions to do so. If you take a look at this link, you'll see the note which indicates this.

Hi @haidernadeem ,

 

Thank you for looking into this. I checked my role in the Team, and I'm the Owner though....

@snowfox 

 

Using this link https://admin.teams.microsoft.com/dashboard navigate to: 

 

Team apps > Org-wide app settings 

 

Is 'Allow interaction with custom apps' on? 

 

Also, in Microsoft Teams, 

  • Select the team
  • Select More Options (...) > Manage Team > Settings > Member permissions 

Is 'Allow members to upload custom apps' enabled? 

 

For reference: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/teams-custom-app-policies-and-settings#team-custom-a...

 

Regards, Haider

Hi @haidernadeem 

When I go to https://admin.teams.microsoft.com/dashboard, it says "You don't have access to the Teams admin center." 😞

Hello @snowfox,

 

It's possible that your organization is using a free version of Microsoft Teams, which does not allow for access to the admin center. You can find more information on this here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/upgrade-freemium . You can also check this link to see the different offerings for the paid version of Microsoft Teams https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/upgrade-freemium

 

If you verify that you do have a valid subscription to access the full features of Microsoft Teams, then I would recommend opening a support ticket for this issue using this link https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/get-help-support 

 

Please let me know if this information about the subscriptions addresses the issues you have been having. 

 

Regards, Haider

Hi @haidernadeem 

 

Does that imply that the free version of Microsoft Team is not allowed to install custom app that I built in Community Plan? Just want to confirm before I talk to my boss. Thank you!

Hi @snowfox

 

Could you try to install the Power Apps for team application following the steps in this article https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/teams/install-personal-app and then try to import the application you've created in PowerApps by following these steps https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/teams/import-solution-in-teams
