Adobe Learning Manager App for Microsoft Teams

How to set up

Setting up ALM on MS Teams involves three steps and needs assistance from the ALM Administrator and Microsoft Azure Administrator. In some organizations, the Azure Administrator and MS Teams Administrators are not the same, and therefore require additional MS Teams Administrators as well.

ALM Admin - Integration Admin role approves Teams app

After the Integration Admin approves the MS Teams app, the Adobe Learning Manager app will be available in the MS Teams app store, and your learners can access it. However, the app will not have notifications, silent login, and the app will not be pinned for the learners in MS Teams.

Microsoft Azure Admin approves the permission for ALM app in Azure dashboard

The Azure administrator will have to approve the permissions required for the ALM app. This will allow that ALM app to send notifications to MS Teams and allow silent login. In silent login, users need not log in separately to Adobe Learning Manager on the browser.

MS Teams admin creates a policy for ALM teams

The MS Teams Admin in their Admin Center should pin the ALM app for all their users and allow it as a global policy. In case ALM is only used by a certain group in the company, then the MS Teams administrator must choose a custom policy and apply it to that specific group only.

Follow the steps below:

  1. On the Integration Administrator app, select Applications > Featured Apps, and select ALM Teams app.

    Select ALM Teams app

MS Teams admin creates a policy for Teams app

Follow the steps below:

  1. As an MS Teams admin, in the Admin Center, create a policy for adding the Teams app to your learners’ Teams app.

    Create a policy

  2. Navigate to the section, Setup Policies. Create a Global policy and select Add apps in Pinned Apps sub-section.

    Add the policy

  3. In the dialog that follows, search for Adobe Learning Manager, and add the app. This adds Adobe Learning Manager in the Installed Apps section.

    Install the app

  4. Save this policy. This makes the app available to everyone in the organization.

Alternatively, admins can create a custom policy instead of a global policy. Add Adobe Learning Manager to that custom policy, and then apply the custom policy to only those set of users who need to access Adobe Learning Manager.
