Can you search across multiple tabs in Elements Spreadsheet?

I have a complicated spreasheet that may require staff members to search across the whole spreadsheet not just search tabs individually. I have set the spreadsheet up as an Elements Spreadsheet on a Confluence Page but would like to be able to search across the entire document rather than search each tab.

I would be grateful if anyone could advise if this is possible - and if so, how do you do it?

Hello @Clare Morey ,

Right now it is not currently possible to search all tabs at once in a Spreadsheet.

However this might be a feature we are interested in adding to our backlog, could you give a use-case example of why your team needed to search in the entire document?

Best regards,


Hello @Clare Morey

Unfortunately, I can't tell you how to achieve it with confluence standard tools.

But maybe you are interested in an alternative, more powerful search solution for Confluence. Here you can find more information: iFinder Confluence Search and iFinder Search Macro.

We found all content in Confluence and in more then 600 file types. Of course any XLS content will be foundable. 

Best, Robby
