Required Permissions

After completing the trial form, you will be asked to log in to your Office 365 account. This does not install ShortPoint to your tenant yet, but is needed to check if you have the necessary permissions to install apps on your tenant.

If you don't have the necessary permissions to install ShortPoint on your environment, you will be redirected to a page where you can request help from your SharePoint admins. At the same time, you will be able to try ShortPoint and its features using an interactive experience.
