This article gives you a step-by-step guide on how to add Webparts360 to your Office365 environment. Disclamer: Please note that this will only work after you have signed up for Webparts360. Without an active Webparts360 account, this process will NOT work. Also, you must be the Office365 administrator before you can perform this task.
To begin, go to the Office365 Admin site. Just press on the apps button on the far left corner.
Click on Admin icon and you will see the following screen.
You will now see the following SharePoint administrator screen.
You will need to create a special site collection (app catalog) to store your web parts. Click on apps and select App Catalog.
Then you will see the following screen. Select the create option…
Then fill up the Title and web site address. Make sure you put in the site administrator and allocate at least 110MB for space and 10 for resources. Don’t worry, this site is only for storage not processing.
When its completed, key in the url and navigate to it. There, you will see the following site, click on the link called “Apps for SharePoint”…
Then you will see…
Press upload and select the associated webparts360 registration file that we have sent you from the directory that you have save it. It’s the “*.app” that you need to register.
Once you have uploaded it, a property page will appear…
Once you uploaded all the file, change the URL to app catalog site collection location, e.g. https://xxx.sharepoint.com/sites/w360apps/_layouts/15/appregnew.aspx Then key in the client ID, client secret. The App Domain is online.webparts360.com. The correct values for each web part is in the Excel file that came with the web parts package.
Once all the web parts are activated, create a new site collection for your Webparts360 apps. Go to the SharePoint site collection administration screen to create it.
Within this page you will see your site collection guid which we need to create your unique workspace for Webparts360. Send us your url and the App Identifier so that we can activate your environment.
Once that activation process is completed, you can start using Webparts360… I apologize if this process seemed rather complicated but it is beyond my control as this is the standard way to register apps in Office365.
Now that this is done, what do you want to build today?
