Open as App for Teams

Open as App GmbH

Get your business data as apps and bots in Microsoft Teams.

Collaborate with apps and bots in Microsoft Teams.

With Open as App you can turn your business data into smart apps and bots instantly without any coding and directly in the Microsoft Teams environment. Based on Excel, SQL, Salesforce and more you can create apps in MSFT Teams, use them and share your apps with your team.

This way, complex data can be published and shared as user-friendly and always up-to-date dashboard, report, calculation or survey apps, e.g. for management, sales, HR, logistics or marketing.

To start all you need is an Open as App account and an app. You can create an app in your Open as App account directly in Microsoft Teams. Just add a tab with!/ and sign into your account. Then follow the usual app design workflow and publish your app – all within the Microsoft Teams environment.

If you would like to transfer your app into a bot go to Advanced/Experimental features in the Open as App Creator. Activate the respective toggle and save the app.

Once your app or bot is published and ready for sharing, simply copy the share link of your app in Open as App and paste it to a tab in Microsoft Teams. A public app will display instantly. If your app is in the protected private mode users need an Open as App account to identify themselves and need to be invited via email first to keep up the protective standard. Your apps will also be available on iOS and Android.

In your Open as App tab you can also see the app overview which shows and allows access to all apps created with Open as App or shared with your Open as App account.

You can try and evaluate Open as App with demo apps and sample data.
