To start the New Year with a bang, we’ve officially launched Excel-like Tables for Confluence today!
Fresh out of beta testing, our latest app is primed and ready to equip users with the convenient ability to bring the Excel experience right onto Confluence’s doorstep.
Gone are the days of attaching countless Excel screenshots and importing endless external spreadsheets to your Confluence pages. With Excel-like Tables, you’ll be able to utilize Excel spreadsheets, diagrams, charts, and formulas all within the Confluence ecosystem.
The Power of Excel Arrives in Confluence
Excel-like Tables allow Confluence users to seamlessly take full advantage of Excel’s key functionalities. Here are some of the things you can do:
With the app, you’ll be able to conduct data analysis all within Confluence. This is made possible thanks to Excel’s PivotTables. They’re a powerful tool that essentially extracts a large set of data, allowing you to analyze, summarize, calculate, and make comparisons with it. In addition, you’ll also have full access to over 450 built-in formulas that include the simple (e.g., SUM and AVERAGE) and the complex (e.g., BESSELI and NPV).
It doesn’t matter whether you’re dealing with kilobytes, megabytes, or gigabytes of data. All of your data will be securely stored in Confluence when using the app – except for installation information.
This means that you can rest easy knowing your data will be protected by the Atlassian Cloud’s highest levels of security and encryption.
Tables, Charts, Diagrams
With Excel-like Tables in the palm of your hand, you’ll have the opportunity to utilize Excel’s full arsenal of tables, graphs, and charts. With them, you can now generate scatter plots, pie charts, and complex tables, to name a few, adding visual flair to take your data presentation skills to the next level.
Even creating Gantt charts is entirely possible here with the help of Excel-like Tables. The sky’s truly the limit!
If your work deals with sensitive data, you’ll know full well how important it is to keep certain information secure and restricted to only those who legitimately need access. The last thing you’d want for your organization’s reputation is a data breach!
With Excel-like Tables, your pages will automatically use the same permissions as originally set by you on Confluence. This also means that whatever tables and graphs you create on your pages will stay within your Confluence instance.

Uniting Confluence with Excel couldn’t be more important these days in order to bring out the most in your projects and teams. So now that you know the major ins-and-outs of Excel-like Tables, why not test the waters yourself to see how it can benefit you?
