CT Text 2.0 Installation Guide

Notes

The first installation of CT Text 2.0 should be on a user with Office 365 administrative rights in order to ensure the necessary permissions in the Office 365 tenant are granted. If not prompted during the install process, you can click here to grant the necessary permissions.

***If YakChat app(s) are currently installed for either a user or for an entire Teams org, the YakChat app(s) will need be uninstalled before installing the CT Text app and the CT Text bot. Failure to do so will result in Teams failing to install the CT Text apps with an error of "this app already exists"***

If you are updating from CT Text 1.0, please not that the CT Text Bot is no longer needed as separate app. The 2.0 version has everything rolled into a single app. The CT Text Bot and CT Text 1.0 can both be uninstalled after the install of 2.0 is complete.

Office 365 Administrator

Ensure that users can install custom applications.  If necessary, the Upload custom apps feature can be enabled by going to the Teams apps/Setup policies menu in the Microsoft Teams admin center. Additional info about uploading a custom app via the Teams admin center can be found here

Install CT Text using the instructions below.  When asked, review and allow the application permissions for your organization.  Below is a screenshot showing the required permissions for CT Text.

Installing CT Text

  1. Download CT Text for Microsoft Teams using the link provided by your IPM or from the Calltower Connect Portal here. Extract the "CT Text 2.0.6 Install File and Instructions.zip" file. The unzipped folder will have both a READ_ME.txt and another .zip file. DO NOT EXTRACT THE CTText_2_0_6.zip file. If you currently have CT Text 1.0.x installed, look over the READ_ME.txt file.
  2. Open Microsoft Teams and click on the "Apps" icon from the toolbar on the left. 
  3. Click on "Upload a Custom App" and select whether you would like to upload the app for the entire organization or just yourself and your teams. You can find it at the bottom of the Store menu in Microsoft Teams.
