Very excited to see these updates!! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Can we please have the ability to use our own hex codes to get the branding to match ours in Confluence? It's really important adopting it as a seamless integration in our company.

This is great to support Excel preview, thank you so much.

One more suggestion for Excel support: if it's possible to edit the Excel on the WIKI page by different persons at the same time? Please help consider, thanks.

A lot of great stuff. Thanks a lot for the amazing work. 

Just a small thing I've noticed, it's seems that the gifs for "Before" & "After" on the performance announcement  are swapted.

Upgrading the Excel Macro is real good stuff.

Because of the functionality of the Excel Macro in our Confluence Server Environment, the first edition of the Excel macro was a breaking point for our users.

We are becoming real cloud fans !!!


Good work Confluence team πŸ‘

The Table Filter & Charts app still works a lot better in comparison to the new "Table Visualization".  With this new integrated "Table Visualization", you cannot filter the table in view mode and have the chart automatically change to represent the filter you applied.  Sorting also has to happen before you put the table data on the page.  For example, if you are building a timeline, date values have to be in ascending order prior to saving - if you want a line chart to show your values along the timeline properly.  Please say I am wrong about this and I have overlooked something (if true).  Baby steps are good though (which still probably took a lot of effort) - and it is much appreciated! ;)  Thanks!

Here is an example of what I can do with the Table Filter and Charts app for Confluence:

The first one shows a Time Line of the last sales in a neighborhood for all three types of "Model" homes.  The second one shows the last sales for each home of a particular "Model".  225 homes total.  When I hover over a point, I see the date and price for that point.  These filters work in "View" mode for the Confluence page.  For now, I will stick with Table Filter and Charts.  Maybe you all need to partner with them like you did with Insight for Asset Management in Jira Service Management - just don't charge us more, please ;)
