What is Confluence?

First, let’s quickly introduce Confluence. Confluence is a wiki tool for organizing and discussing work by creating content in a team. In addition to being able to easily create and share pages like a blog, you can also work with a variety of external applications.


How to Display Excel on the Confluence Page

I will show you how to display Excel on the Confluence page. How do you make a page in the first place? Hit the link below to check it out.

Try Building a Page With Confluence

Attach an Excel file to a page

A preliminary preparation is required before the macro can be retrieved. Specifically, you need to attach an Excel file to any page. This page can be a different one, or it can be the one I’m going to give you.
Upload the file from the top of the create screen. I uploaded a file called TESTSheet. Click “Insert” and you’re done.


Search macro for “excel”

After attaching the file, search from the macro. Open in the upper right of the page creation screen, and click “Miscellaneous Macros” at the bottom.
This brings up the following macro selection modal:.
Type “excel” into the upper left modal search box. You need to be careful because it won’t be hit by an Excel in Katakana. (You don’t have to put all the letters, it comes out as a partial match.)
The macro “Office Excel” is hit.

The following screen appears. In “Page name”, if you insert the page with the file attached, it will appear in the recommendation. The file name is the name of the file that is embedded in the above page. For example, below shows an Excel file named “TESTSheet” attached to a page named “widget material”.
