Create a full-page app in SharePoint

Create a full-page app in SharePoint

Apps for Microsoft SharePoint are easy-to-use, stand-alone applications that perform tasks or address specific business needs. You can place an app on a full page (that is, without a page command bar) to provide more space for the app, and to make it easier for you or your users to find and use.

Notes: 

  • Some functionality is introduced gradually to organizations that have opted in to the Targeted Release program. This means that you may not yet see this feature or it may look different than what is described in the help articles.

  • You must be a site owner or SharePoint administrator to add pages. If you are a site owner but you are unable to add a page, your administrator may have turned off the ability to do so. 

  • This article applies to modern pages in SharePoint. If you are using classic pages, or you are using an earlier version of SharePoint, see Create and edit classic SharePoint pages.

Add an app to a full page

Before getting started, make sure the app you want to put on a full page is available for you to use. Check with your organization if you don't see the app you want to use.

  1. From the home page of your site, click New and then click Page.

  2. Click the Apps tab.

    Note: If there are no apps available for use on your site, you won't see the Apps tab.

  3. Select the app you want to use. If there is a preview available for the app, it will be shown on the right.

  4. Click Create page.

  5. In the App page details pane on the right, enter a name for your page.

    App page details.
  6. Select or clear the Show in site navigation checkbox, depending on whether you want the app to appear in the navigation for the site.

  7. Depending on the app, other options may be available in the App page details pane. If there are, select the ones you need.

  8. When you are ready for the page to be visible to your page viewers, click Publish.
