Installation Step 1: Upload ShortPoint SPFx to Site Collection App Catalog in Office 365

Important disclaimer: Starting with ShortPoint version 7.1.5.xx (New Upgrade), you can no longer create multiple site collection app catalogs and install different ShortPoint versions into them. You still can upload the ShortPoint app to the site collection app catalog to control who can add and install ShortPoint in specific site collections.
