Adding Spreadsheet to your Confluence pages

Once the plugin is installed, Spreadsheet is available as a macro in a Confluence page.

When your are creating or editing a page, if you want to add a Spreadsheet, simply follow these instructions:

  1. Click "+" in the action bar to open the "Insert more content" menu. Then click on "Other macros".
  2. In the search box at the upper-right start typing "Spreadsheet", when you see the Spreadsheet macro, select it.
  3. From here you can choose to start a new document, use or copy an existing document, or import an existing Spreadsheet/Excel document.

Optionally, on Server / Data canter, you can trigger this screen (below) by typing directly "{spreadsheets" in your page to activate Confluence's macro insertion syntax and selecting the Spreadsheets option. Cloud is behaving in the same way, except you will need to type "/spreadsheet".
