# Configure settings for the SharePoint Store
-The SharePoint Store is an Internet-based service that offers apps for Office, SharePoint, Exchange, Access, and Project. Site users can access the SharePoint Store directly from a SharePoint site in order to browse for and buy third-party apps. If a SharePoint environment has been configured to prevent users from getting apps from the SharePoint Store, users can still browse for and request apps. These requests are added to the App Requests list in the App Catalog.

Navigation helps users find the information they need quickly by providing links to pertinent information in a persistent manner. [Planning your navigational strategy in modern sites](./plan-navigation-modern-experience.md) is a critical element in the usability of your SharePoint environment. Modern SharePoint sites provide a streamlined model for [adding navigational elements](https://support.office.com/article/3cd61ae7-a9ed-4e1e-bf6d-4655f0bf25ca) using the browser. The position of the navigation is determined by the kind of site being viewed, the size of a user&#39;s screen, and whether the [megamenu option](https://support.office.com/article/06bbadc3-6b04-4a60-9d14-894f6a170818) has been enabled for the site. Additionally, modern sites can take advantage of hub site navigation.
-Note that legacy versions of SharePoint allowed navigational elements to be dynamically generated using the structured navigation and managed metadata navigation providers. These options are no longer available in modern sites. However, if you are using a classic site with modern pages, you can still use these providers and the modern pages will reflect the correct navigational links. In terms of layout, because modern sites do not allow you to customize the site&#39;s master page or style sheet, it&#39;s not possible to move the position of the navigation elements on the page as could be done in classic SharePoint sites.

# Manage app licenses for a SharePoint environment
-As a SharePoint or global admin in Microsoft 365, you can use the SharePoint admin center to manage licenses for apps purchased from the SharePoint Store, regardless of whether you purchased them. All apps available from the SharePoint Store have built-in licenses that SharePoint recognizes. An app license provides digital verification of a user's right to use an app.
-
-It is important to keep track of the number of licenses that are available for each app so that the number of app users does not exceed the number of available licenses. If necessary, you can buy additional licenses for an app.
-
-From the admin center, you can also add users to an app, or delegate management of a license to someone else.
-
-> [!NOTE]
-> The Office and SharePoint App Stores are optional services operated by Microsoft Corporation or its affiliate from any of Microsoft's worldwide facilities. The apps available in the Store are provided by various app publishers, and are subject to the app publisher's terms and conditions and privacy statement. Your use of any of these apps may result in your data being transferred to, stored, or processed in any country where the app publisher, its affiliates or service providers maintain facilities. Availability of specific apps and payment methods depends on your region and service. You can review the app publisher's terms and conditions and privacy statements before downloading and using such apps.

-SharePoint provides the capability for site users to invite external users (that is, users who do not have a license to your Microsoft 365 subscription) to view or edit content on sites. External sharing is a powerful collaboration feature that can support your organization's needs to collaborate with external vendors, customers, or clients. However, it is important to manage external sharing carefully to ensure that any content that you do not want shared is adequately protected. For info, see [External sharing overview](external-sharing-overview.md).

You should give thoughtful consideration to where you enable external sharing and what level of external sharing you allow.

## Evaluate partner solutions <a name="__configure_infopath_forms"> </a> As part of your planning, you should evaluate whether your organization has specific business needs that might require you to use third-party services or applications to customize SharePoint. For example, your organization might need to migrate a large volume of content or a large number of users to your SharePoint site. Or you might have business processes that require support for email-enabled lists. If you think that your organization might benefit from third-party services or applications, please explore the professional services and applications available from partners in the [Microsoft Partner Center](https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=839525). You can find experts to help you deploy in the cloud or tailor Microsoft 365 for the needs of your business. It is a good idea to explore and research available third-party services and solutions at the beginning of your planning process.

-# Use the App Catalog to make custom business apps available for your SharePoint environment
+# Manage apps using the App Catalog
-As a SharePoint or global admin in Microsoft 365, you can create an App Catalog site to make internally developed custom apps available for users to install when they browse apps under the **From Your Organization** filter on the Site Contents page. Site owners can then add these apps to customize sites with specific functionality or to display information.
+As a SharePoint or global admin in Microsoft 365, you can acquire solutions from the SharePoint Store or distribute custom apps that can be used across SharePoint, Microsoft Teams, and Viva Connections. The first step in acquiring solutions is to have an App Catalog you can use to store and distribute solutions.
-After the App Catalog site has been created, you can use it to upload any custom apps that your organization has developed. Uploading custom apps isn't much more complicated than uploading a document to a library and setting some properties. You can use the App Catalog site to do things like install custom or third-party apps on sites for users (also called app deployment). You can also manage app requests from users.
+For information about your options for developing custom apps for SharePoint, see [Overview of the SharePoint Framework](/sharepoint/dev/spfx/sharepoint-framework-overview) and [SharePoint add-ins](/sharepoint/dev/sp-add-ins/sharepoint-add-ins).
-For more information about your options for developing custom apps for SharePoint, see: [Build apps for SharePoint](/sharepoint/dev/sp-add-ins/sharepoint-add-ins) and [Apps for SharePoint compared with SharePoint solutions](/sharepoint/dev/general-development/sharepoint-server-application-lifecycle-management).
