Across the Office platform, we’ve seen an amazing set of new applications developed, spanning from Office-integrated mobile applications, to new SharePoint web parts, to bots and integrations. We’d love to feature some of the best applications and integrations you’ve seen, but we need your help. If there is an Office add-in that changes how you work, or if there is a well-crafted Teams app that really changes how your team communicates, we’d like to invite you to nominate  that application for our annual Office app awards.  Nominations can be submitted through August 31, 2018.  Winners receive promotion in AppSource and recognition at our annual Microsoft Ignite.
