All new ideas will be evaluated by the HCL Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

Disable preview for xls (Excel) files

Currently Docs previews has some limitations.



In order to workaround these issues, we would like to only download .xls files, instead of previewing it.

    Until this becomes a feature it should be possible to change the behavior for XLS preview by using the Connections Customizer. A script would prevent the preview to load and instead just show the standard thumbnail if document type=XLS
