Manage apps on Enterprise Grid

Who can use this feature?
  • Org owners and org admins
  • Available on the Enterprise Grid subscription

Org owners and org admins can manage apps for all workspaces in their Enterprise Grid organisation from the Admin dashboard:

  • Approve apps for members to install
  • Restrict apps so members cannot instal them
  • View all installed, approved and restricted apps across their Enterprise Grid org


Approve or restrict apps for your org

If there’s an app management policy in place for your org, apps will need to be approved before members can install them to their workspace. Org owners and org admins can approve or restrict apps for every workspace in their org.

Note: If an app is approved at the org level, workspace owners can still restrict it for their workspace. If an app is restricted at the org level, workspace owners can’t approve it for their workspace.

Approve apps for your org

  1. From your desktop, click your workspace name in the top left.
  2. Select Settings & administration from the menu, then click Organisation settings.
  3. Below  Organisation in the left sidebar, click Apps
  4. Click on Manage apps in the top-right corner of the page and select Approve an app.
  5. Search for and select an app from the drop-down menu.
  6. Review the app’s requested permissions, then click on Approve.


Restrict apps for your org

  1. From your desktop, click your workspace name in the top left.

Note: restricting an app will not remove any existing installations of that app from workspaces in your org.
