I am trying to integrate a spreadsheet through something other than Excel, as Excel is not accessible without the additional download of it on mobile.  Essentially I have a list of 760 names that all have to go through a recurrent training.  Once a person is completed with training, a member of my team needs to sign and date that they oversaw the training.  Is there ANY app or resource I could utilize to do this that is mobile friendly without additional mobile downloads (besides Teams itself)?  Thank you!

Hello! I would create an app with PowerApps and your excel spreadsheet as data source. Your external users are given a hyperlink to login as well as there can be an approval workflow to confirm each trainee with his/her participation done. Youngest an office 365 tenant and a PowerApps plan 1. All this is provided within (as I know) an E3 o365 subscription. Your PowerApp can also be connected with a link to ms teams. At least you need to upload your workbook to OneDrive (or Dropbox) to get mobile access.

But that requires download of powerapp app ;)
Sounds trivial though, but actually make people do this is hard:grimacing_face:
Hi Darci! If you want to realize it with mobile access you have to make it with online apps, as you requested ANY app. With or without a smilie. Hope that helps. Greets, Eva

1. Create a SharePoint list in the site associated with the team and copy/paste in your list of names, add a column for sign off, date etc.

 

2. Back in Teams add this list as a tab using the SharePoint type, on the desktop it will be neatly embedded.

 

3. In thre mobile app for Teams, find the tab in the team under more, again you'll see a view of your list with search and the ability to edit the data. Its a web view, but appears inside the Teams app.
