Microsoft Teams admins can customize or rebrand the app properties based on the organizational needs using the Teams admin center Manage apps page. The details you can customize are:

  1. Short name

  2. Short description

  3. Full description

  4. Color icon

  5. Outline icon

  6. Accent Color

To start customizing an app, complete the following steps:

1. Sign in to the Teams admin center.

2. Expand Teams Apps and select Manage apps.


3. Search for the Servicebot app from the list of apps.




4. Click on the app’s name to view the details


  5.  Expand the Details section and customize the field you want:

6.  Expand the Icon section.

  • Upload an icon. Use one full-color icon (192x192) pixel in PNG format.
  • Choose an icon outline color. Use one transparent outline (32x32) pixel in PNG format.
  • Select an app accent color that matches the icon.

7.Once your app has been customized, select Apply.
