  • Search for the MURAL app and click on it.

Read more in the Microsoft Teams help article on adding apps.

App setup policies

We recommend you consider using app setup policies to install and pin apps for the MURAL app to ensure your users are getting the most out of the integration. You can learn more about install and pin app policies here.

MURAL User

After the Microsoft Teams and the MURAL administrators have enabled the MURAL app, end users can install the app themselves if the app permission policy that's assigned to them allows it. Setup instructions are also available in the MURAL support article.

1. Open Microsoft Teams, and go into the Store by clicking on Apps in the bottom left corner. Search for 'MURAL' (or scroll through the store to find it).

2. After selecting MURAL, click on “Add.”

3. Click on “Get Started.”

4. Sign in with your MURAL credentials.

5. Allow the MURAL App for Teams to access your MURAL account so we can bring all necessary information from MURAL into Teams.
