Admins can go to Admin > Workplace to get apps for the company and configure who can use them. You can use Open Platform to develop your own apps. Once these apps are reviewed by the administrator, everyone will be able to use them. On Admin, administrators can also configure the app display order on Lark Workplace and the front-end display.
1. Install official apps
Method 1: Get default recommended apps
On Admin, select Workplace > App List. In the App Marketplace area, we provide some default recommended apps that you can install. To obtain an app, click Get.
Method 2: Find more apps in the App Directory
Click View more to go to the app details page in the App Directory. Here, click Get to install apps. After installing the app, you must enable and configure the app to make it available to employees. The configuration process is different for each app. If you have any questions during the configuration process, go to the Help Center and search for the app name to find a tutorial.
Click Workplace > App List to view the apps you've already installed. Select the app to configure and click Configuration to go to the configuration page for this app.
- •Using the QR Master app as an example, find the availability status and click the Edit button after the availability setting. This allows you to set the departments or employees who can access this app. If you select Allow employees to apply for access to this app, employees who want to use this app but can't do so, can apply for permission to access the app.
- •In addition, you can set the Range of contact permission for the app. Go to settings and find the range of contact permission section and click Edit. This allows you to select the departments and employees whose data the app can access. If you enable Sync automatically from availability, the contact permission range will be synced from the availability setting.
- •Note: Don't worry if an app doesn't include Range of contact permission. The configuration process is different for each app, so configure the app based on the actual interface.
To obtain a paid app, the administrator must go to Workplace > App Payment to complete the payment, repurchase, or renewal operation.
If your paid app expires or you need to upgrade it, you can click the button to the right and select Repurchase to go to the purchase interface. Select a purchase plan and click Purchase and Pay.
2. Install self-built apps
On the app creation interface, find the self-built app section and click Create to go to Lark Open Platform.
Once on the Lark Open Platform interface, select Create an App and create your own app to meet your company's needs.
After creating an app and applying for publication, go to Workplace > App Review to find the app. After the app passes review, it can be used by employees in its availability range. To learn more, visit How to use custom apps.
Administrators can go to Admin > Workplace > App Review to review new apps submitted by internal developers, release new app versions, and set app availability ranges. If they have any questions on the availability range of an app, they can contact the developers, adjust the availability, or add other approvers to the approval process.
Note: Before adding another approver the admin must adjust the availability. If the new approval approves the app, the app version is directly approved.
3. Workplace settings
After you've obtained, reviewed, and configured an app, you can set recommended apps for company employees and adjust app categories and display rules for Workplace.
Click Add a recommendation rule. Enter a rule name that distinguishes the rule for ease of management, select the effective department, and add the app quantity and order. Then, click Save to use this rule for convenient recommendation configuration.
After adding recommendation rules, you can manage the rules. Click the switch to enable or disable a rule. To delete a rule, move your cursor over it and click the Delete button that appears. Use your mouse to drag and drop icons to set the priority of rules.
Click Add Category, enter the category name, and add apps to it. You can select category names in Chinese, English, and Japanese. When you want to display apps in a particular order, note that the apps on top will be given display priority.
Set the switch on the top Deactivate the custom category. To delete a category, hover over it and click the Delete button that appears. You can drag and drop the category icons to set their display order. The categories at the top are given display priority.
The default app display rule is Consistent apps display at desktop and mobile. This setting means that all apps will be displayed on the Workplace of each client. If the current client doesn't support a certain app, you'll be prompted to use an appropriate client if you try to access it.
If you select the Show only available apps on desktop and mobile display rule, each client will only display the apps it has permission to access. This makes it easier to find apps.
