Adding ScrumGenius to your team

ScrumGenius is available in the Microsoft Teams store

If you do not see ScrumGenius in your store, you will need to contact your IT admin team to request permission to have it added to your store. You can send them the following documentation https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/teams-app-permission-policies. Please contact our support team if you need help with setup.

ScrumGenius needs to be installed to each team you wish to use the service with. Each time ScrumGenius is added to a team, you will receive a direct message from the bot to continue connecting to our service.
