How To Share Live Excel Sheet In Teams

Microsoft Teams offers a great platform for collaboration within a team, which includes the ability to share and collaborate on Excel spreadsheets in real-time. Imagine how much time and effort it saves when team members can simultaneously access and work on an Excel sheet. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the process of sharing a live Excel Sheet in Teams.

Step 1: Open Your Teams App

The first step is to open your Microsoft Teams application. You can do this either by clicking on the Teams icon on your desktop, or by searching for Teams in the search bar and selecting it.

Step 2: Choose The Channel

Once the Teams app is open, navigate to the left-hand side where all your teams and channels are listed. Choose the team and the specific channel where you want to share the Excel sheet.

Step 3: Open The ‘Files’ Tab

After choosing your desired channel, go to the top of the interface and click on the ‘Files’ tab. This will display all the files that have been shared within that channel.

Step 4: Upload Your Excel Sheet

If the Excel sheet you want to share is not already uploaded, you’ll need to upload it. You can do this by clicking on the Upload button and selecting the file from your computer. After the upload is complete, the file will appear in the list of files in the ‘Files’ tab.

Step 5: Share The Excel Sheet

Now you’re ready to share the Excel sheet with your team. To do this, find the Excel file you just uploaded, click on the three-dot menu next to it (More Options), and select Copy link. This will generate a link to your Excel sheet. You can then go to the ‘Posts’ tab in your channel, paste the link into a new message, and click Send. This will share the link to the live Excel Sheet with everyone in the channel.


Sharing a live Excel sheet in Teams is a straightforward process that can greatly enhance collaboration within your team. By following these steps, you can ensure that all your team members have easy, real-time access to vital spreadsheets, helping to improve productivity and streamline workflows.
