Resources + Requirements to Help Keep you on Track

Figuring out where to start with your project can sometimes be a hurdle in your building journey.  The Resources Tab can be a great place to find your footing and take advantage of the documents and other helpful tips

In addition to having the tools and resources you need to complete the requirements of the challenge, you also want to pay close attention to what makes your submission eligible for judging and prizes.  Below is a reminder: 

  • Main Requirement: Businesses are invited to build new apps for Microsoft Teams that can be published into Microsoft’s AppSource app store. 
  • You're required to include your MPN ID: If you do not have an MPN ID, you will need to create one here; create a free Partner Center account to test and publish the apps. 
  • Your Application Must Be New to AppSource: You’re welcome to rebuild an app you’ve previously made for other communication platforms, but your app cannot have been previously published on Microsoft’s AppSource app store.
  • Review the AppSource publication guidelines and approval process. Be sure to build your app following these guidelines so your app can be published on Microsoft’s AppSource app store. Don’t wait until the last minute! The AppSource publication process will require additional information like screenshots and text descriptions.

Now it’s time to get to work - happy building!
