Tenant Admin - Pre Approval of Application Permissions

As the tenant admin, you can pre-approve the application permissions required so that your users do not have to.
This is key if you have configured your Microsoft Enterprise Application settings so that an end user cannot add or approve add-ins themselves.

You have two choices as the enterprise admin in order to pre-approve the application. You can directly log into the application interfaces yourself as the tenant admin and 'approve on behalf of your organisation.

- this is the simplest way, but will require an o365 license for things like the Colligo Email Manager Outlook add-in, Word/Excel or PPT add-in and the Teams add-in.

Please ensure that the first approval you give is the tenant admin approval through the Colligo Management Console to read your users. This is to ensure that our licensing can work with your user directory.

To pre-approve permissions when your tenant admin is not licensed and so cannot actually launch the Colligo add-ins then please follow this guide:
