Suppress assignee and date in action items table description

Is there a way to suppress the assignee and date in the description field  as I have this info in the due date and assignee columns? I know I can remove those columns to not duplicate the data, but then I lose the ability to sort.

Hi @Nigel Brown , 


the description column is actually a simple "copy" of the task description, it's not possible to only include some information here even if it's duplicated somewhere else.

You can have a look at the documentation here :


If you do need more flexibility for tracking tasks, I would suggest looking at Jira : this way you can configure exactly what's displayed in the Jira Issues macro in Confluence, and it gives you more configuration options.


Let me know if this helps, 



Thanks Alexis, thought as the other two columns were able to include only specific parts there may be a way, but it’s not a major issue, just not a fan of duplicating info but I’ll just have to get use to it 🙂


Thanks again
