Installation Step 3: Add ShortPoint Tab to Your Teams Channel


You are now in the last phase of the installation process. All that is left to do is add a ShortPoint Tab to other Microsoft Teams Channels. There are two ways to do this. One way is using the Manage Your Apps tab. This is similar to the process you did on Installation Step 2. The second way is using the Teams tab. Follow the instructions below to get started.
