I have a spreadheet I would like to bring into Confluence. It has 11 columns and 35 rows, and I need a team to be able to edit it. I have tried import file, but the end result is poor, does not reflect the original formatting in excel too well, and it feels foreign to Confluence. Whats my best option here? Thanks
Hi @gustavo , do you want the excel file to be an attachment within the page or do you want to simply import the data into a Confluence table? If the data is to be regularly updated my recommendation would be to use a Confluence table. It will take a bit of effort to initially set it up but not much. However, if the cells contain formulas then you will need to stick with excel as an attachment.
Thanks Jack, there are no formulas. Do I just copy paste the columns and rows onto the Confluence page to create a confluence table? I am afraid it will not keep my formatting, for example one column contains steps in a process and I have each numbered step in a different line within the cell etc
create your table beforehand then paste. however, indeed formatting will not be retained unfortunately.
Hi @gustavo ,
You'll be able to import your existing Excel file in the spreadsheet and continue to work with it right in Confluence (edit it in the page view mode using filters, pivot tables, cell formulas, conditional formatting, etc.).
Besides, the app allows you to enhance native Confluence tables. You'll be able to filter, aggregate, visualize them and perform tabular calculations.
We'll be happy to organize a live demo for you and your team - please book an available time slot here.
If you're open to Marketplace alternatives, I can suggest you the app Elements Spreadsheet. It's very simple to use, you can import Excel spreadsheets and edit them directly in Confluence. You can do all the basic stuff Excel allows you to do. Another cool thing is the ability to configure custom templates to match your company's look and feel standards.
If you need assistance or need to discuss your use case in greater details, feel free to book a time slot in my calendar, I'll be happy to help!
PS: I am the Product Manager of the app
