Can an admin re-install app for a user, if it has been originally installed through an app setup policy?

Aleksi Pulkkanen 0 Reputation points


So I have a Teams app setup policy defined to install an app to all users on tenant.

2 of the users seem to have some difficulties on the app setup - seems like the original install event has been missed for one reason or another. For others everything works great.

Is there any way to remove & add again the app for only these 2 users, without touching the full Teams app setup policy?

Kind regards,

    Hi @Aleksi Pulkkanen

    As far as I know, the end-users can install apps on their own if the app permission policy lets them install it and the app is allowed by the Teams admin. If an app is blocked, then end-users can request admin approval.

    To install apps using an app setup policy, follow these steps:

    1. Sign in to Teams admin center and access Teams apps > Setup policies.
    2. Select Add.
    3. Provide a name and description for the policy.
    4. Under Installed apps, select Add apps.
    5. In the Add installed apps pane, search the apps that you want to install for users. You can also filter apps by app permission policy.
    6. Select Add.
