Add SharePoint site as a App to the Teams

Occasional Contributor

Hi,

 

We have been trying to add a SharePoint site to Teams and pinning to the Org-wide, so that everyone in the organization is able to view the SharePoint site pinned on the left side bar in the Teams.

App studio application was used build the package and deploy to the teams.

 

We were successfully able to host the SharePoint as an app and pin to the Left side bar Org-wide, but the issue which we are facing is we are not able to view the Top navigation bar which we have set up on the SharePoint site.

 

The issue is same on the Teams Web app and Client app.

We need help in resolving this and enable the Top navigation to show for the SharePoint site hosted on Teams Client

What happens if you use the “Website” tab and paste in the full url of SharePoint. Is this giving the same results? Or is the top navigation still not visible?

Let me know the outcome.

Kind regards,
Mitchell
The Website tab is available within a specific channel in the Teams, but here we need to add the SharePoint site as an Icon available to all user of the Teams app on left Side bar.

@mahendra89 you can create a custom app to do this. Then then Teams admin can a add the app to the left hand nav bar for all users. here is a quick overview of the steps.

Go to the Developer Portal https://dev.teams.microsoft.com/home

+ New App

  • Add details

Add Personal App

  • In Content URL paste in the Form URL

Publish App too Your org

In Team Admin center  - Managae Apps

  • make sure app is approved and allowed

In Team Admin – Set up policies

  • Add app to Nav bar for all users

This can take several hours to publish app to the nav bar in Teams.

@NikkiChapple Thanks for the steps, we have tried this and are able to successfully add on the left nav bar on Teams after Teams admin policy setup. The issue is we are not able to view Top navigation of the Site when it is hosted/viewed on Teams application. Normally when you open the SharePoint site, we do see the Top navigation menu.
