Add App to SharePoint Site


Examples of built-in apps that can added to your SharePoint Online site are Document Library, Calendar, Contacts, Announcements, Tasks, Custom Lists, Links and many more. To add one of these features to your site:

  1. Click Site Contents in the left hand column.
  2. Click New (next to the plus sign near top of screen) and then click App.
  3. An alternative is to click the settings gear icon on the upper right and click Add an app.
  4. You will see icons for each available app and the most common or "Noteworthy" apps will be displayed at the top.
  5. To get a description of what an app is for, click App Details underneath the icon. If you decide you would like an app after reading the description click ADD IT. You can also add the app by clicking directly on the app icon.
  6. A box will pop up asking for a name. Try to use a short name because it will become part of the URL to this portion of your site. Avoid using spaces but if you must, note that the URL will replace each space in the name with "%20".
  7. Click Advanced Options to add a description and choose additional options.
  8. Click Create.
  9. Your added apps will now be available and can be found by clicking Site Contents.
