App Catalog: How can I create an app catalog for the add-in version?
Microsoft has announced that apps for SharePoint will be renamed into add-ins,
and the catalog will subsequently be called add-in catalog instead of app catalog.
But here we call it app catalog, because that is what it still says in the interface we have.
An app catalog is a type of site collection that is used for storing apps for your organization’s
internal use. This article shows how to create an app catalog for Kanban Task Manager SharePoint Add-in,
how to upload the Kanban Task Manager APP file to the app catalog and how to add Kanban Task Manager to a site.
(To perform this steps you must have full permission over the SharePoint tenant.)

Select the Admin app.
The Office 365 admin center will open.
Expand the Admin Accordion and select SharePoint.
The SharePoint admin center will open.

Fill out the entries in the form and click OK.
