Use collections in the My Apps portal

Collections are different app views you see in the My Apps portal. Apps can be grouped into collections by department function or user role, for example. If you don't see any collections or categories available, it means that your administrator hasn't set up or shared any with you. Contact your organization's Helpdesk for additional assistance or permissions to see shared collections.

If your administrator has turned on the new My Apps preview experience for your organization, you’ll now see a banner at the top of the My Apps page that says, An updated My Applications experience is available. If you select Try It, you’ll immediately go you to the new URL (myapplications.microsoft.com) and the updated experience. After that, every time you return to the My Apps page, you'll automatically go to the new experience.

To stop using the new experience, you can select Yes from the Leave new experience banner at the top of the new My Apps page. You’ll immediately return to the old URL (myapps.microsoft.com) and experience. After that, every time you return to the My Apps page, you'll automatically go to the old experience.

Access apps using collections

The list of collections in the My Apps portal defaults to show one named All Apps, which has every app you have access to:

Any other collection you see in this list was created by your admin and shared with you. You can choose one of those collections to see a more scoped set of apps, such as Support in the following example:
