Utilizing the Excel Add In via Teams


Our organization has recently made a push to utilize Microsoft Teams more and house shared files within the teams channels. I noticed that if a file has an Anaplan Excel Add-in connection that teams will not allow you to utilize it. Has anyone run across this issue and is there a fix? Or does Anaplan plan to have this functionality in the future?


  • If you open the file to Excel (rather than opening it within Teams) then it shoud be fine.

    The O365 extension mentioned in last week's Anaplan Live session by @LeighRomeo may have this capability ie have the file open in Teams but still have the add-in available.
