Steps to install Prebuilt Applications and Activate NITRO Studio for a Subsite

Applies to: SharePoint Online


This article describes the steps to activate the NITRO Studio and steps to install prebuilt Crow Canyon NITRO applications.


This article assumes that you have already installed the Crow Canyon NITRO Studio and Tenant Framework App in the Site Collection where you want to activate the NITRO for a sub site. If you are not installed these apps, please refer instructions from Article


  • User Permissions
    • User doing the installation needs tenant admin rights on the SharePoint online tenancy where NITRO is being installed
  • Site Collection
    • To install NITRO Studio in a new site collection, tenant administrator can create a new site collection
    • Or installation can be done in an existing site collection
  • App Catalog
    • Installation requires Crow Canyon NITRO Apps (SharePoint Add-ins) to be installed in the site collection. Apps needs be added to the app catalog site of the tenancy. Since these apps require tenant level permissions, we cannot use site collection level app catalog for the installation

Activate Nitro in a Sub site

Once all the NITRO apps are installed in the root site of the site collection, open Crow Canyon NITRO Studio app. All sub sites in the site collection will be listed in the NITRO Studio Admin page. Click the “Activate” link to install NITRO Studio in the required sub site.


By default License Type will be Trial, if we have purchased the subscription or enterprise level license then it shows those options in the License Type drop down (Trial, Subscription, Enterprise). Please contact Crow Canyon Software ( to get the subscription/enterprise licenses and more details about the licensing.
