Update an existing Microsoft Teams app


After setting up your Totara app for Microsoft Teams for the first time, you may later need to make various updates to it.

You will need to download and reupload the manifest file if you are:

  • Updating your app
  • Making changes to the app name, description, or icon
  • Adding language packs/strings 
  • Making changes to the language packs/strings

When you are creating a new manifest file you need to ensure that you update the app version number in the SemVer format, e.g. 1.0.0 to 1.0.1.

Once you have made the required updates, click Save and go to the Totara app installation settings.

  1. Go to Team admin settings > Manage apps (https://admin.teams.microsoft.com/policies/manage-apps).
  2. Search for your app and select it.
  3. Click Update.
  4. Select the downloaded manifest.zip file.
  5. If Microsoft Teams says the app already exists, you should keep increasing the version number, redownload and reupload a manifest file.

Please note that it can take up to 30 minutes for the app to update for all users, and may require restarting the app.
