To begin, an administrator with the appropriate role assignment (Teams administrator or Global Administrator) needs to navigate to the Microsoft Teams Desktop application or web application (https://gov.teams.microsoft.us). From Teams, locate and select “Apps”, then select “Upload a Custom App” > “Upload for my org” as shown below.
Once “Upload for my org” is selected, file explorer will open. Navigate to where the Teams app package is located, select the package and open the file (If you do not have the Teams app package, please contact your eShare Customer Success Manager).
Once the permissions have been accepted, the application is approved and will be made available to all users within the organization. Any owner of a Teams team will be able to add the eShare Trusted Sharing App as a tab in a channel, below is the procedure owners should follow to add the app.
Adding the Teams app to a Microsoft Team
As an owner of a Teams team, open the Teams desktop client or the Teams web application and visit the Teams channel you would like the app added to. Once in the channel, select the + at the top of the page.
The “Add a tab” window will open, start to type eShare into the search bar so the app displays in the front, then select the app. Once selected, the user can choose to “Post to the channel about this tab” to notify team members the app is now available, then select “Save” to add the tab.
The eShare tab will now become available for the channel. If you click on the tab you will see the ‘File’ directory for the team as well the Trusted Shares (‘My Shares’ and ‘Shared With Me’) for the team. Note that the Trusted Shares are limited to those associated with Trusted Shares created from team files, including Trusted Shares created using the eShare SharePoint application and using the eShare Cloud Web Portal.
