I have been recently looking at implementing the new MeasureUp Microsoft Teams Application into my corporate organisation. I want to share what I’ve learnt about the application, how it can benefit organisation and reduce your licencing cost if you already use MeasureUp.
So the MeasureUp Application where do I get it and what permissions does it require?
Approving application in Microsoft Teams
Launching the Microsoft Teams Admin Centre à Manage Apps – Find MeasureUp, the tenant admin can approve this application.
When approving the application you need to understand what permissions you are granting to MeasureUp
- Receive messages and data that I provide to it.
- Access my profile information such as my name, email address, company name, and preferred language.
- Receive messages and data that team members provide to it in a channel.
- Access this team’s information such as team name, channel list and roster (including team member’s names and email addresses) – and use this to contact them.
The MeasureUp application is available within your Microsoft Teams Application store as shown below, this app will be visual to all end users if you are an organization that doesn’t limit what apps are made available.
The application is added to a Microsoft Teams Channel as shown below;
Click Add to a team
Search for the Channel you would like to add Measure Up to
Once you setup the Tab, you will be presented with the following window
Click Login, it will identify the user by their email address which was defined in the Measure Up Portal.
Depending on what exams have been made available, they will be displayed like so in the following windows
Administrators of MeasureUp receive the following window when they login.
Now we have an understanding of the application, the permissions required and what it looks like in a Teams tenant. Lets have a look at the cost of this solution.
The subscription cost for full MeasureUp access is $250 with a minimum of a 100 users requirement. However, if you are looking at just using Microsoft Teams its $100 with a minmum of a 100 user requirement. So the cost saving is massive for any organisation that is looking at using MeasureUp.
