Adding App Scopes to other applications

Applies to: VisualSP
Print Friendly, PDF & Email
You can use the VisualSP application on any web-based platform and create your own custom help items that will display in that application.

These are instructions for customers who already have VisualSP installed in SharePoint Online or Microsoft 365. If you do not have a SharePoint Online or Microsoft 365 subscription, please contact us for how to proceed.

If you click on the Manage Subscription link from the VisualSP admin menu in the help panel, subscription administrators will see an Applications tab:

When you first go to the Applications tab, it will be empty. There will be a message saying you will need to create an application group before you can create an application (click for larger view):

Creating a new App Scope Group

Click on the Application Groups tab and give your new group a name, an optional description, and a Sort Order with a value of 5000 or higher. Click Save.

Now click on the Applications tab and click on the Add Application button.

Add a title and description, and select the app scope group you created earlier.

Once you click Save, a script tag will be generated. Click the file icon to save it to your clipboard.

Next, open the application where you would like to add VisualSP and paste the script tag into the header.

Creating Help Items for your new App Scope

Once the tab appears, click the tab to extend the help panel and Enable Editing from the hamburger menu. Click Add Help Item. In the Help item editor window, click the App Scope drop down and select the new app scope you just created.

Create your custom help item as you normally would. When saved, the help item will appear in the new application. VSP anywhere. anywhere everywhere
