Please i need your help 


I'm encountering an issue where, after uploading a custom app for testing within our organization's Microsoft Teams store, I'm unable to install the application for a tab. The 'ADD' button seems to be missing, preventing me from proceeding with the installation.

    Hi @Iniobong Nkanga

    You can upload Microsoft Teams apps without having to publish to your organization or the Microsoft Teams Store in the following scenarios:

    • You want to test and debug an app locally yourself or with other developers.
    • You built an app for yourself to automate a workflow.
    • You built an app for a small set of users, such as, your work group.

    You can upload your app to a team, chat, meeting, or for personal use depending on how you configured your app's scope.

    1.Log in to the Teams client with your Microsoft 365 development account.

    2.Select Apps > Manage your apps and Upload an app.

    Screenshot shows the option to upload an app highlighted in red.

    3.Select Upload a custom app.

    6.a. Select Add to add your personal app. b. Use the dropdown menu to add your app to a Team or chat.
