  • Elements Spreadsheet supports Excel document with .xls and .xlsx extensions
  • The Excel document size must be less than 1 Mb

First, go to your Confluence page where you want to import your Excel file and insert the spreadsheet macro

  • Cloud: There are both possibilities to either upload a file by clicking on the button, or drag and drop the desired file in the dedicated space. Then, click on "Import" to import the file to edit it.

  • On-premise: From the macro creation, select "Import file". Click on the "Browse" button to select your Excel document on your computer. Finally, click on the "Ok" button to start importing your document. Once the import is finished, your document is ready to be edited in the Spreadsheet editor.

To be available on your Confluence page, you have to save your imported document in the editor (even if you don't edit it)
