Instructions: Install YakBot for Microsoft Teams
Important: Make sure that you upload the .zip file into Microsoft Teams intact. It is most important that you do not extract any files contained in the .zip file, otherwise the installation process will fail, even if you re-compress the files into a new .zip file.
Because Safari browsers are often set to automatically extract .zip files, you must disable this setting. You can find Instructions on how to do that here.
