Brightspot Content Types Guide


This guide explains how to add a spreadsheet to Brightspot. Spreadsheets are effective for sharing data-heavy assets, like ones that include figures detailing a company’s recent financial performance. These are just examples, and your use cases for these asset types may vary greatly.

You can add the following file types of spreadsheets:

  • .csv
  • .xls
  • .xslx
  • .ods
  • .numbers
Before beginning these steps, make sure you save the spreadsheet on the drive you are working from, or obtain its URL from the internet.

To add a spreadsheet:

  1. In the header, click add.
  2. From the Create list, select Spreadsheet.
  3. Using the following table as a reference, complete the fields as needed.
  4. Complete your site's workflow and publish the spreadsheet.

After you publish your spreadsheet, you can use it in assets such as pages and sections. You can also add spreadsheets to text you compose in the rich-text editor.
