Hello, 

 

i created a Sharepoint Library with a custom Template. Then i moved the library into a Sharepoint Site. When i create a File online, everything works as planned. But now we try to embedd this Site as a Teams Tab, and there the custom template isn't working, precisely it do not open the file. The template is saved in the Standard Folder of the Templates

Hi @senior_freshman ,

 

I wouldn't bother using the SharePoint tab, its a bit useless. It has been built as a Read only view of the site. What this actually means in reality is that you cannot create any documents and open some documents. Half an implementation if you ask me. 

 

Limited work arounds but Microsoft will tell you to use the document library tab which does have all the functionality. I am using this approach for some of my customers.

Thank you for the quick answer but this doesnt resolve my problem. Creating a Tab with a Sharepoint Library got the same problem: The custom Template can't be used.
