  2. From Teams, go to the store and search for Culture Amp 
  3. Click Add to install the app. 
  4. Once you’ve installed the Culture Amp app, you'll be asked to sign in with your Culture Amp account. You are able to receive Culture Amp notifications as soon as you install the app. However, to get the full experience you must sign in with your Culture Amp account.  
  5. Follow the prompt to sign in with your Culture Amp account. 

NOTE: Your organization's admin for Microsoft Teams must enable the Culture Amp app within your 3rd party apps catalog for Teams. If you don't see Culture Amp listed in the app store, ask your organization's admin for Microsoft Teams to enable it.

Now that you've connected your Culture Amp profile with Teams, you can use commands such as “Give feedback” and receive more contextual notifications. 

Use Performance Quick Commands

You can give and receive feedback quickly with shortcut commands.
