Hi!

I have added an Excel tab to my Teams channel. When I go to the tab I can see it is opening it in Excel Online.

However, when I change the browser view settings in my Excel sheet to Gallery View, then the view in tab in Teams does not change, whilst when opening the same file in any browser or in SharePoint it does show the Gallery View.

Yeah! The tabs in teams works on it’s own terms!

@adam deltinger Excel Online tab in Teams opens in Editing View by default it seems. The Excel browser views, like the gallery view, is only visible in Reading View.

This changing this setting is not yet possible in Teams. See this blog
