There are two questions

  1. How can a document be directly opened for comparison?

  2. How does xlsx compare?

Hello @huzedong2022
We are checking the situation. I will come back to you as soon as possible.

I regret to say, but there’s no comparison feature for xlsx files. We have added your request to internal tracksystem (internal number - 63250). We have started working on it.

Thank you.

Can I directly open two documents for comparison? Currently, I need to manually enter the page for operation

Do you mean 2 files in two browser tabs? Yes, it’s possible.
As for situation in general, we are working on the mentioned suggestion already. I will update this thread when we have something to share.

I need to:

  1. Open onlyoffice
  2. Click on ‘Compare’ to select a file
  3. Display comparison results

I hope:

  1. When opening onlyOffice, the comparison results will be displayed directly

This is exactly the feature which we are going to add for xlsx files in the future. So far described mechanism works for docx files only: Comparing and combining documents - ONLYOFFICE
I will update this thread when we have any news about the same mechanism for xlsx files.
