Hello Kati, and welcome to Atlassian Community. It's nice to have you!
I understand you want to create appendices using PDFs or a Word document. Does the PDF/doc contain the appendix, or are you looking for Confluence to automatically generate an appendix based on the attached documents?
If you're looking to upload the attachments and embed them on your page, you can find out how to do that below:
You can also import the Word documents and create a page this way.
That might be more basic than you need. If that is the case, please show me an example of how you want this to look and how it should work. I can help you find a solution.
If you need to include the attachments in a single list, the attachments macro can do that.
Below is an example of the macro from the article:
The macro displays a list of attachments on a page. You can adjust various parameters depending on what you need to show, sort order, and more!
Would something like this work for what you need?
I will have to try that. Right now, I created a table and drag and dropped each attachment into the table - work around solution.
Can you tell me how I can create a group to view my document who are not confluence users? I would like to present something to them, but don't want them to have to login, etc. They just need to view - not edit, comment, etc.
If you want people to view Confluence content without logging in, you would need to set up public access and host the document in a public space. Unfortunately, this means that anyone on the internet can view your document, so I don't recommend this.
The best thing in your case would be to use Google Drive to host your files. Then you can use Google Drive for Confluence to display those files to your users, and external users can interact with the documents via Google.
I hope this helps, but let me know you have any questions about that.
Sure, I'm happy to help you get familiar with Google Drive. You can start by reviewing this page on how to use the Google Drive macro in Confluence.
To learn about the basics of using Google Drive, look at Google's article, How to use Google Drive. You can see what you can do with various file formats under Compatible File Types.
