Documents: Show also preview of Excel-Files
We are planning to improve the preview of Excel, Word and PowerPoint files in the context of our Office 365 integration
Yes, that's being planned. We'll also need the O365 integration for that, though.
is it still planned to have previews for excel?
Unfortunately this is due to technical limitations. We are converting the documents to pdf internally using a third party library. Unfortunately, the library sometimes struggles a bit with some Word documents. We hope that we can resolve this issue when we start integrating O365 and are switching to use Microsofts API directly.
It would be great if you showed the correct preview. In e.g. Word-Documents, sometimes some parts are misisng in the preview (e.g. highlighted text parts). Our colleagues ar often irritated, since they mostly don't download the file; they just look at the preview.
