Apologies for repeating myself, but I’m getting quite a bit of flak about this from my community. The Google Docs onebox is kind of half-baked and I would very much like to be able to turn it off.
The only workaround I’ve found is to run the link along with the previous paragraph of text. (I.e., not putting it on a line of its own.) I found this by trial and error and I’m pretty techie. It’s not really feasible to instruct users We refer to Google Docs a lot, and I’ve gotten into the habit of editing people’s posts in this manner to prevent the onebox from appearing.
In any case, I think embedding the document is overkill and should be optional. I much prefer Slack’s approach:
An attractive link is sufficient. It’s a spreadsheet, after all. I’m not going to try and view it in a tiny window.
