I have a team site with a Home Page like the one on this link (created programmatically with STS#3 template).

I'd like to customize the Home Page adding a SharePoint hosted App I have developed.

But if Edit the page I only see the command "Add a new Web Part":

How can I add an app to the Home Page?

I dont necessarily use the STS#3 template but I could also use the PROJECTSITE#0 (or maybe STS#0 Team Site classic experience).


I have added the App to the Web Site both "locally" and globally through Deployment at Site collection scope.

I have developed the Add-in (App) using Sharepoint hosted pattern.
In my App I have only the Default.aspx page and the code is Javascript inside the App.js file.
I haven't used any WebParts and hopefully I won't need them.

  • did you add the app to site via Add an app ? You first need to install that app in the site collection Commented Oct 11, 2018 at 8:21

Create an add-in part so you could insert the add-in part to a page.

How to create add-in part

Update: enter image description here

  • I have read the article, but the problem is that the example is tailored to provider hosted Add-in. That is that in Visual Studio there are two projects (web application project and SharePoint Add-in project). Instead I have a single SharePoint hosted project. So for example when at last it says "SharePoint Add-in doesn't have any add-in web, and its remote web application exists only to host the form. So the start page of the add-in should be set to the home page of the host web." I can't understand how to apply this to my case. there aren't any examples around for Sharepoint-hosted?
