Excel Template won't work from MS Teams New Menu. Works from SharePoint New Menu.

Copper Contributor

In MS Teams, Click on New Menu and select uploaded Excel template from list. Then get this message.


Click Open in Desktop App and get this message.



This works in SharePoint.

I've done the same with Word templates and they work fine within MS Teams.

Just can't get the Excel Template to work in MS Teams.

Any ideas would be great?

Came across this page because I experienced the same issue. I assume you meanwhile have figured it out.


Simply upload a normal xlsx file as template, this works fine.


Kind regards
