App requests and integrations
Members of the University community can request third-party apps and add-ins from the University’s Microsoft 365 team. These requests are subject to a review process that involves:
- Approval by the requester’s divisional IT administrators.
- An evaluation by the Application Review Committee.
- A risk assessment.
Microsoft apps that are part of existing Microsoft licenses such as Power Automate, Power Apps and Sways are granted on a by-request basis. Some Microsoft apps such as Power BI Pro, Project and Visio require that additional licensing be purchased through U of T Libraries: How to Purchase Software.
University community members can request that third-party apps and add-ins that connect with their Microsoft 365 accounts be enabled. These requests will be subject to a review process.
If you are requesting one of the following applications, please purchase a license through the Library. There is no need to fill out this form:
- Microsoft Power BI Pro
- Microsoft Project
- Microsoft Visio
Support for approved add-ins is provided by users’ local IT units.
There’s an approved app I want to add, but the table says it has user restrictions. How can I add it?
Apps with indicated user restrictions can be enabled for specific user groups after going through an approval process. For more information, please submit a ticket to the Enterprise Service Centre.
Two types of apps and add-ins can be implemented as part of the approval process:
- Low-risk apps: Identified low-risk apps that do not access Microsoft 365 data are available for University-wide use.
- Higher risk apps: Apps that are higher risk and integrate with Microsoft 365 data can be enabled for specific user groups after going through a request and approval process.
If you would like access to a higher risk app, please submit a request through the Enterprise Service Centre.
Applications developed by EASI do not currently require an information risk assessment (IRM) but do require a privacy impact assessment (PIA). These applications have an existing governance process and are outside the scope of the Application Review Committee.
