Is it possible to link an Excel document on a Confluence page so that all modifications are seen?

I am trying to link multiple excel pages on a Confluence page. I am trying to see if some changes are made on the Excel files on my desktop if the changes could also be reflected on the documents attached on the Confluence page. I want to avoid to have to reupload the Excel documents every time and rather find a way to override the documents at regular schedule.

 

Please let me know if possible or if there are other alternatives.

Hi Soumia,

The Office Connector does that exact thing. If you attach an Excel file in Confluence, and edit using the Office Connector, it allows you to open the file from Confluence directly in Office, edit it, and then it saves back to the Confluence page.

Please review the article there and let me know if you have any questions about that functionality.

Kind Regards,
Shannon

Thanks for the response. I am already using that function :) All in all, I was wondering if I could host the Excel documents on my desktop and make bulk edits which would be reflected eventually on the Excel documents in my Confluence page. Hope this clears out my initial question.

Soumia,

No problem! For that I would recommend using WebDAV. You'll need to keep the file stored in WebDAV on the server where it is, and you can edit these on Excel. It organizes them in a way that is easy to find and access, unlike the Hierarchical File System that Confluence is using to store page attachments.

Kind Regards,
Shannon
