  1. First you have to register the MyQ app in SharePoint.

  2. Then you have to create and set the SharePoint Online destination.

  3. Lastly, users have to connect their MyQ accounts to SharePoint.

Enabling access to SharePoint

To set up the access, you have to register the MyQ app in SharePoint and enter the SharePoint Application ID and Secret on the External Systems settings tab in the MyQ web administrator interface.

  1. In a browser, enter one of the the following URLs (you need to have admin rights on the specific level -for the SharePoint root site or for the specific site- to be able to access the settings):

    1. For the root SharePoint site:
      <https://<site_name>.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/appregnew.aspx>
      (e.g. https://mycompany.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/appregnew.aspx)

    2. For a specific SharePoint site (site collection):
      <https://<site_name>.sharepoint.com/sites/<specific_site_name>/_layouts/15/appregnew.aspx>
      (e.g. https://mycompany.sharepoint.com/sites/SCANNING/_layouts/15/appregnew.aspx)
