I'm experimenting with a custom hosted Teams app (MVC).  When I add a tab to a channel, I see a message on the mobile app that this tab is not available on the phone.

 

How can I make the tab open a custom app as per OneNote or Planner

 

Thanx

Hein

Hi! Can you explain a little further what you're doing!

Also, when you add custom apps, make sure that external sideloading is enabled in teams settings

admin portal -> services and addins -> Teams ->apps - allow sideloading of external apps

Hi Adam.

 

Currently I'm just experimenting.

 

I have implemented the following example:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/platform/get-started/get-started-dotnet-app-studio

 

Everything is working & can install the app on the desktop version of Teams.  I can talk to the bot & create tabs in a channel.

 

When I try and access the tab on a mobile device, I get the following error:

 

App is not available on phone.png

 

Clicking on a Planner Tab (Action Plan) or a OneNote Tab (Notebook) opens an App.

 

I would like to be able to also open a custom app when my tab is opened on mobile.

 

Thanx

Hein

 

 

I have now even tried adding a SPFx WebPart as a Tab and it is also not available on mobile...
