💡Feature Idea: Embed Live Editable Spreadsheets

edited May 2022 in Feature Ideas

It would be nice if we could embed live interactive spreadsheets on a Mural board, such as a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. This would be exceptionally helpful for long term project plans that expand horizontally.

This feature would include a vertical and horizontal scroll content block.

    It would be great if we could embed a Google Sheets or MS Excel spreadsheet into a mural, maintaining the ability to edit cells and formulas within that spreadsheet. Even better, if possible maintaining a live link to the original file for real-time updating. I guess many users would appreciate that feature too.

    I was researching this functionality and stumbled upon this post. I am trying to assist our PMO manager with a use case to duplicate her physical PM assignments whiteboard into Mural. I have a mock up version created which gives her an overview of who's assigned to what, their allocation, and she can easily move assignments around. However, the one missing thing would be an auto-calculation of a PM's allocation. I have yet to find anything comparable and would love to see simple formula functionality or an embedded spreadsheet in the near future!

    Hm, what would be your use-case for this?

    I have not yet used any Excel or Spreadsheet things in Mural. That's why I am asking. I would like to understand your cases.

    Hi @nokonoko! You're not alone- a feature request for this already exists, and it needs your votes! Might I merge your post into it?🙌 Let me know- happy to help. -M

    (P.S.: By NO means is this the solution to your request, but in case it's also helpful as a temp option: there is copy/paste functionality between Excel/Sheets and MURAL.)

  • yes me too.. I'm using Mural in my company, but unable to copy contents in spreadsheet mode into mural. it comes as sticky notes and doesn't look like a spreadsheet.. occupies more space.. It would be super if Mural has the similar tabular (row-column) style data contents

  • Yes please, include editable excel sheets, and other docs, like word, powerpoint, etc.... (Like MIRO app)
