Giving possibility to import and deploy Office 365 PowerPoint Forms Add-in in Office 365 Admin
As per documentation to insert Forms in Office 365 Powerpoint, the administrator must set "Let users access the Office store".
If you're trying to insert Forms in PowerPoint and at the same time your organization is blocked individual installation of Add-ins from Office Store, but there is no other way to allow using it, except allow users to use Office Store. Due to privacy, security or other reasons, it can't be done.
Organizations haven't another way to install it via Office 365 Admin Console, for example, or as separate Add-in.
The Idea is creating a separate add-in for Forms Button and giving the possibility to import and deploy it via Office 365 Admin Console for Office 365 Powerpoint.
Same like Steve, nice tool without a valid concept or strategy for huge companies and against the own Microsoft add-in concept? Or what is the idea?
It's now been six months without anything from Microsoft. It's not a great user experience to have a button that doesn't work, and opening the entire Office Store isn't an option for our org.
Dear product group, we raised now many tickets without a valid feedback. Can someone told us why for the Forms Addin cant be deployed in the same way like e.g. FindTime. This will help the company to leave the Office store closed and we only can pick these addins who are relevant for all employees.
We need to add https://presentpal.co.uk/students for some students
SANS had a security issue with a Office 365 Addin as the store must have been open on the tenancy.
A more curated store or some sort of admin approval is needed.

Clearly MS didn't want anyone to actually use this add-in. The excuse doesn't match the request of just allowing the admin to deploy without opening the entire Office Store.
I opened and closed a case for exactly this - this week.
I have forwarded this url to my colleages but I fear nothign will be done in the near future.
Please make this feature available
This is especially frustrating for educator working from home but using their organization's Office 365. Josh has nailed it on the head.
This is wild. We cannot allow unmanaged access to the Store and be compliant with NYS law. Why would you design your own integrations in such a way that they cannot be managed by your own management platform?
We also have the need to let our users insert a Form in PowerPoint without opening the entire Office Store to all users.
