Copying tables from Google Sheet to Confluence



Is it possible to copy a table from Google Sheets into a template table in Confluence to get normal result?

It pastes all the table content into the cell I'm inside and leave empty the others. It's really annoying, it should be a very basic function.

And it is important for me that the template tables are present in confluence.  


The result I get:


The desired result:

Hi @Tamás_Beke ,

For large tables we use the following workaround:

  • copy the share link of your Google Docs Spreadsheet
  • change its ending: "edit?usp=sharing" -> "export?&format=tsv" (or "export?&format=csv")
  • paste the modified link to your browser and go to it: you will be prompted to download your file in the chosen format
  • use the Table from CSV macro to recreate your table in Confluence

The Table from CSV macro is a part of the Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app which can help you to make pivots, perform calculations, merge and transform tables, freeze rows, built custom charts, etc.

It's a wonderful solution to enhance the standard Confluence functionality which provides an opportunity to perform all the required operations in Confluence without switching back to Google Docs or Excel.

I usually create an empty table first and then copy the contents in. Works most of the time.

You can also try using Excellentable Spreadsheet for Confluence to simply import the .xlsx file and edit inside Confluence
