Pin apps to your users' app launcher

You can use controls in the Azure Active Directory portal to pin up to three apps to Office.com and the app launcher for all the users in your organization. You can also organize groups of applications. Any app you add can later be unpinned by the user at any time. To pin an app for your users, you must be a Cloud application administrator, or Application administrator in Azure Active Directory, or a Global administrator in Office 365. For more information about admin roles, see admin roles in Azure Active Directory and admin roles in Microsoft 365.
