This article will explain how to set up the Tenant App Catalog on your Office 365 SharePoint Environment so you can add ShortPoint SPFx to it after.

You can also set up Site Collection App Catalog instead of Tenant App Catalog. (Which option is good for me?).

Step 1: Login to your Office 365 Admin

Login to your Office 365 admin center page with an administrator account, then choose Admin:

Step 2: Go to SharePoint Admin Center

In the side App Launcher menu, 

  • if you're using the new admin center, click All admin centers:

In the opened menu, click SharePoint:

  • if you're using the old admin center, scroll down and click the Admin Centers:

From the drop-down, choose SharePoint:

Step 3: Open App Catalog page

Click More features on the left menu section:

Click the Open button under the Apps section:

Select the App Catalog option:

Then follow below steps to set up your App Catalog site
  1. On the App Catalog Site page, choose OK to accept the default option and create a new app catalog site.
  2. On the Create App Catalog Site Collection page, specify the title of your App Catalog site (ex: Apps)
  3. Specify the web site address. (example: apps)
  4. Set the Storage Quota to the lowest possible value (currently 110).
  5. Set the Server Resource Quota to 0 (zero). (The server resource quota is related to throttling poorly performing sandboxed solutions, but you won't be installing any sandboxed solutions on your app catalog site.)
  6. Choose OK.

Now every time you open your App Catalog, this will open your App Catalog site where you can start uploading Apps for SharePoint. The site will look like this in a different title of course
