Granting Approval and Permissions for Stop & Think

To properly install Stop & Think, some organizations require additional levels of permissions for approval. Please have your Global Administrator or Teams Administrator follow these steps to grant approval to Stop & Think:

Option 1: Approving Stop & Think for the first time

Option 2: Re-approving Stop & Think

Option 1: Approving Stop & Think for the first time

  1. Administrator heads to this link, or Log in to Microsoft’s Teams admin center. You must have a Global Admin or Teams Administrator role to access this page. Stop & Think does not manage this process or permissions.
  2. Search the Stop & Think app under Teams apps > Manage apps. Click on the Stop & Think app name.
  3. Confirm that the Status toggle (1) is on and set to "allowed".

  4. Once you have confirmed that the Stop & Think app is “allowed”, then select the Permissions tab (2) to review the app and approve the App Permissions.

  5. Click the button Review permission and cons…(3) to grant or review admin consent for the app.

Once the app has been “allowed” and the permissions are approved, they will begin to propagate throughout the Microsoft Store. This process can take a few hours.

If you or your users want more immediate access, you will need to Sign out of Microsoft Teams and then sign back into your account.

Once propagated, the Stop & Think app will be available for your user base to install and use in chats, meetings and teams!

Optional Step: If your organization would like to further limit access to the Stop & Think app we recommend you setup a new App Permission Policy.

Option 2: Re-Approving Stop & Think

On occasion, users will experience issues using Stop & Think due to permission settings being misaligned. To address this, administrators can do the following steps:

  1. Administrator heads to this link.
  2. In the Manage Apps page, search for Stop & Think.
  3. Click on Stop & Think to inspect the permissions. Click the Review permissions and cons... button.
  4. See if there is a new permission that needs to be approved. All permissions should be green check-marked. Click Accept
