Sharing with Microsoft Teams

MindMup now integrates with Microsoft Teams, allowing organisations with Office 365 accounts to easily share maps with pre-existing groups instead of having re-create teams within MindMup. This feature is available to all existing organisational MindMup accounts at no additional cost. However, due to increased access permissions required to integrate with Microsoft teams, it needs to be enabled by the organisational administrator. This page explains how to enable Microsoft team integration.

Prerequisites

Microsoft Teams integration is currently available only for accounts with an Organisational MindMup Gold subscription, linked to their Office 365 domain. Small teams or individual accounts can still use Microsoft sign-in but we do not currently offer Microsoft Teams integration for those types of accounts.

Activating Microsoft Teams

The MindMup administrator can activate the Teams integration from the account administration page with a few clicks. Here is how:

  1. Open the account administration page and sign into your MindMup account - make sure to use the Sign in with Microsoft option (signing in with a MindMup username and password will not work for this).
  2. Switch to the Account Privacy tab

  1. In the list of options, find the Microsoft teams option.

  1. Click the Enable Microsoft Teams button next to that option.

The system will check if the necessary access permissions have already been granted, and if not, redirect you to the Office 365 authorization portal where you can enable the required permissions. After you do that, you will be redirected back to MindMup, and you will be able to activate the teams.

The Office 365 authorization portal authorization must be given by the Office 365 administrator. In the case when the MindMup account administrator and the Office 365 administrator are not the same person, you can forward the authorization link to the Office 365 administrator. Alternatively, the Office 365 administrator can visit the installed applications list in their console, and grant admin consent to MindMup. You will then be able to activate the teams option within MindMup.

Working with Microsoft teams.

Viewing your teams

To see a list of teams you are assigned to, open the account page, and select the Teams section.

You will see a list of MindMup and Microsoft teams linked to the current user. Microsoft teams will have the four-square Microsoft logo next to them.

Sharing maps

To share a map with all users in a Microsoft team, click the Add subteam button in the map share dialog.

You will see a list of available teams. Microsoft teams will have the four-square Microsoft logo next to them. Click on one of the options to the right of the team depending on the access level you would like to give team members (read-only or edit).

Limitations

At the moment, the integration is limited to sharing maps within the MindMup application. We plan to expand this to allow embedding maps into the Microsoft Teams application.

Required Office 365 privileges

To activate Microsoft Teams integration, MindMup will require access to the User.Read.All Microsoft Graph permission.
