Prepare Microsoft Teams for development

There are two possible ways to prepare a Microsoft Teams environment for building apps:

  • Have your organization admin allow uploading apps in Teams
  • Sign up for the Office Developer Program and get a new tenant

Enabling uploading of apps

To upload apps that you develop, your organization administrator has to enable uploading in administrator settings. Prepare your Office 365 tenant describes the settings and how to change them.

Office Developer Program

In case your organization administrator cannot change these settings, you can use a test tenant to upload your apps. The Office 365 Developer Program lets you create test tenants to load and test Office 365 and Teams apps. Sign up today to create your own tenant. To configure your tenant for app development for Teams follow the steps in Prepare your Office 365 tenant.
