Office 365 How To Add A Custom Tile To The App Menu

Recently I’ve been playing with PowerApps and wanted to ensure the app was available from the top left app menu for all users. We’ve implemented the leave request PowerApp template to approve different types of leave, holidays, sick days etc. We wanted everyone to have easy access to this app without them having the favorite the web page, especially useful when working out on the road.

You can use this method to add just about any web based application you use in your business.

 

1. Log into the admin center as a global administrator here

Browse to ‘Settings’ then ‘Orgranization profile’ and click on ‘Edit’.
