Allow "Website" App for SharePoint.com URL's in GCC
It was previously stated that it is difficult for Microsoft to add the "Website" app to Microsoft Teams in GCC due to concerns over compliance. If opening up to any URL is a concern or difficult item to address, how about allowing links to *.sharepoint.com? This would allow users in Teams to have a more integrated experience and allow use of applications that are coming from trusted sources.
This is really needed by many!! Please try to make this available to GCC tenants, and if it already is but requires configuration, please post a link to how to turn it on and configure it.
If it isn't, why don't you create a whitelist of URLs that can be used with the Website tab, such as GCC SharePoint Tenant, SmartSheet.gov, Office365/Dynamics365/PowerPlatform, and anything that can be accessed from the O365 home page within the same tenant, as well as any OnPrem servers in the same client domain? That should allow you to keep certification since all the available URLs are already certified and/or belong to the owner of the Teams tenant. I'm certain you can build in some sort of validation and/or verification that the site meets GCC requirements before allowing it to be added to the whitelist and then only allow whitelisted URLs in the app.
Can you make it where we can just add a link? It doesn't have to open up Teams. It can create a tab in our default browser that opens the site.
I'm not a developer, but it doesn't seem complicated.

I thought I used to have the website tab available in GCC High, but I no longer can add it. Really, really need it!! Need to embed SharePoint links.

This is a must have feature in my opinion. Administrators should be able to provide a whitelist of domains to Teams that are allowed WebSites to include. This would allow us to control what links are allowed and be able to integrated with other web tools better.

Isn't this already released? I can currently add a "website" tab to any channel, including links to SharePoint
It would also be good to be able to display dashboards from Service Center as tabs in Teams. We are using SMSC for our Help Desk. If we want Teams to be our one stop shop for tracking tasks, we either duplicate the tasks in both SCSM and Teams or we find a way to display the dashboard in Teams. Without the ability to whitelist URLs that can be added as tabs, this just isn't possible.
Another task tracker is TFS for the developers. Since we can't add a tab, we have to track in two places. If the developer is also getting tickets in SCSM, we now have three places to look for tasks.
I understand that you have to maintain certification, but isn't there a way to allow GCC certified URLs to be used? How about URLs within the entities own domain? I realize that these would be outside of the tenant, but there must be a way to recognize the customer's own domain.
I hope this is something that can be accomplished, and soon.
This would be great!
What about allowing domains that are configurable by administrator? I'd also like to be able to add SmartSheetGov, Forms, and a few others.
I agree. This seems like a no brainer. Why can't we add a sharepoint link from our own tenant. I would think it would be safe.
Since only sites created with the modern TEMPLATE (not the modern EXPERIENCE, but the actual template used at the time of the site creation) integrate with Teams to be added via the SharePoint add-an-app in Teams, and since many of our site collections and subsites predate the modern template, we tried to work around it by adding the SharePoint Online site to a website tab instead of the SharePoint tab, but it was still nogo.
I would allow [yourtenantname].sharepoint.com at least. Hopefully integration within a tenant to other GCC resources would be fully supported.
Yes, would greatly appreciate this.
It would be great if something like this could be added so that we cold utilize features that are available on the SharePoint Team sites in Microsoft Teams (like calendars and OneNote).
