Creating a Local App Catalog

If you are trying to upload the SharePoint Tag Installer app to a local app catalog in a SharePoint 2013, 2016, or SharePoint Online install and have not yet created an app catalog, follow the steps below to create one:

  1. Log in to SharePoint 2013, 2016, or Microsoft Office 365 with an administrator account.
  2. Click Admin > SharePoint in the overhead navigation menu.
  3. Click Apps from the left navigation bar.
  4. Select Apps Catalog from the central frame
  5. Select Create new app catalog site.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Provide the necessary Title and URL information for your app catalog when the central frame refreshes. You must have a unique URL from any other app catalogs that are already created in your install. When all fields are populated, click OK.
  8. Wait for SharePoint to create your app catalog. A green spinner is visible on the Site Collections screen while this process is underway:
