Creating a chart from Excel
Since the Chart.js for Confluence app reads the information from tables, it is fairly simple to use an Excel table and copy it over to Confluence into a chart macro. Here is an example for a Bar Chart.
1. Prepare the table in Excel
2. Select and copy the table
The macro expects these two columns. They allow you to specify the type and color of the data series in each row.
At this point you can already publish your page. Even though you haven’t specified type and color. The macro will use defaults and random colors.
You can go back to your macro and specify more details.
