Install the Paligo App in MS Teams

Abstract

Learn how to install the Paligo application in Microsoft Teams. The Paligo application is needed if you use the Paligo App connection type for the MS Teams integration. It is not needed if you use the Webhook connection type.

When you have set up the Microsoft Teams integration in Paligo, you can install the Paligo application in MS Teams. It is important that you only install the Paligo app after setting the integration settings in Paligo.

Note

The Paligo application is only required if you have set the Paligo integration to use the Paligo App connection type. It is not needed for the Webhook connection type.

    Note

    If you do not have an Apps tab, check that your MS Teams user account has sufficient permissions to add applications. Also, check that your MS Teams is on a plan that allows applications to be installed.

  6. Select the Upload a custom app link (shown in the footer area of the Apps view).

  7. Select the Paligo app zip file that you downloaded in step 1.

    The Paligo app installs and then you can use the Paligo-MS Teams integration (assuming you have set up the integration).

Note

If you change the Paligo-MS Teams integrations settings in Paligo, you will need to reinstall the Paligo app in MS Teams.

When you have installed the Paligo application, the next step is to Test the MS Teams Notifications.
