How do I open an Excel file directly in Confluence and allow multiple users to edit at same time Edited

New User here :)

I've uploaded an Excel document and I want to ensure all team members can edit at the same time and all our changes are saved.  Also want to see who is editting the document

When I click to Edit the document I select Edit With Excel 2016 however then it downloads the file and opens it with Excel and after I make changes it uploads a new version

I'd like to open the document as an Excel document withing Confluence (like another app I was using before).  Right now it opens as a document (likes like Word - no cells, nor formatting, etc.)

Let me know how I can do this.


2/22 Update - I've created a Table and copied/pasted by cells from Excel to the table.

Hi Michael,

Try out Excellentable Spreadsheet for Confluence. It offers collaborative editing . 

Also, here is a video to get started.

There is no way to do that with an attached Excel document in Confluence. You could create a table in Confluence and using the new collaborative editor see what is being edited in the table and by whom. Another option would be to embed a Google Spreadsheet into the page using an iframe.

Thanks Davin for the quick response.   I'm using a table.
