Admin Managed Apps

With Microsoft 365, apps can be used to add custom features and functions to existing Microsoft applications. For example, a researcher might install the RefWorks add-in to Microsoft Word to enhance citation management. Similarly, a staff member might use the Forms add-in with Microsoft Teams to generate feedback via polls during online meetings.

Please reference the table below for a current list of University-approved and enabled Microsoft 365 apps with accompanying installation instructions.

Request a new app

Members of the University of Toronto community can request apps from the University’s Microsoft 365 team. These requests will be subject to a review process. To request an app, please submit a request through the Enterprise Service Centre. The form can be found here: Form to Request a New App.

A list of apps that have been requested and are currently under review can be found here: List of Add-Ins Under Review.

Note: Apps 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 this committee. Support for these apps will be assumed by the developers.

Note: Support for approved add-ins will be provisioned by users’ local IT units.
