Note Note

The names "apps for Office" and "apps for SharePoint" are changing to "Office Add-ins" and "SharePoint Add-ins". During the transition, the documentation and the UI of some Office and SharePoint products and Visual Studio tools might still use the terms "apps for Office" and "apps for SharePoint". For details, see New name for apps for Office and SharePoint.

After you’ve created your Office Add-in, SharePoint Add-in, or Office 365 web app using Azure AD, you can make it available to users in several ways. The options that are available depend on the type of app or add-in you create.
