How to allow the CoffeePals app in Teams Admin Center (IT)

Before your organization can use CoffeePals, the app must be accessible by users. You can achieve this by setting up permission policies in the Teams Admin Center.

Allowing for the Entire Organization



To allow the entire organization access to an application in the Microsoft Teams admin center through the app permission policy, follow these steps:

Open the Microsoft Teams admin center in your web browser here.

Sign in to the admin center using your Office 365 admin credentials.

In the left-hand navigation menu, click on the "Teams apps" tab and then select "Permission policies" from the drop-down menu.



Click on the "Add" button to create a new app permission policy. Alternatively, click your "Global" policy to edit.

Give your app permission policy a name and description, then click "Next" to continue.

In the "Third-party Apps" section, select "Allow specific apps and block all others".

Click the "Allow apps" button and search for CoffeePals and click "Add". Then click "Allow".

In the "Permissions" section, select the permissions that you want to grant to the app and click "Next" to continue.

In the "Assignments" section, choose the "Entire organization" option and click "Save" to create the policy.

The app permission policy will now be in effect and all users in the organization will have access to the app in Microsoft Teams.

Allowing for select User Groups
