Create a word document tab in a teams channel

Hi Everyone,


I have a flow that creates a word document tab in a teams channel. It is adding the tab with no problem however I am getting the ‘No preview available’ error when I try to open it in the app. I am able to download it and view it no problem. I am also able to open the file in sharepoint, but not in teams. Please see below

Here is my flow

When debugging, I have only focused on the entity id, which is the ETag of the file but have had no success

  1. I tried using the ETag itself which looks like "{GUID},1"
  2. I got rid of the “,1” from the end
  3. I got rid of the the curly brackets and the “,1” at the end which just gave me the guid but didn’t work


Am I focusing on the wrong thing? Do you know of any other ways this can be fixed?


Please let me know. Thank you!

Hi @mahoneypat, thank you for your response. I used that site to initially create all my teams tabs via  flow and then used the teamsAppIds for each type from here

Unfortunately, it is only the word document tab that I am struggling with.
