Access and use apps on the My Apps portal

You can use your work or school account with the web-based My Apps portal, to view and start many of your organization’s cloud-based apps, to update some of your profile and account information, to see your Groups information, and to perform access reviews for your apps and groups. If you don’t have access to the My Apps portal, you must contact your Helpdesk for permission.

If what you're seeing on your screen doesn't match what's being covered in this article, it means that your administrator has turned on the new My Profile (preview) experience. To use the new experience, you must follow the instructions and information in the My Profile (preview) portal overview section.
