M365 Changelog: Open-sourcing Microsoft Teams sample Power Apps

MC521468 – In 2020, Microsoft released Microsoft Teams sample apps to help our customers accelerate adoption of Power Apps in Teams. We also received many requests for new functionality and customizations and love the passion our customers have for our sample app ecosystem.

Microsoft is excited to announce that it will fully open source all the Power Apps sample apps for Teams. This will empower the passionate open-source community to invest further in customizations, new capabilities, and even additional apps – and to share them with everyone.

When will this happen:

Available now

How this affects your organization:

You can acquire these sample apps from the Teams Store to GitHub (GitHub – microsoft/teams-powerapps-app-templates: Sample Teams app built by Power Apps). The Power Apps Teams personal app will continue to showcase these samples and direct users to GitHub to download and install them in Teams. This aligns with our broader Microsoft effort to engage with the open-source community.

What you can do to prepare:

You may consider updating your training and documentation as appropriate.

In the future, Microsoft will look to add more open-source samples and app templates to contribute further to the ecosystem. We’re excited for what the community will create from these sample templates!
