Are templates functional in the <10 user version?

I've applied both Retrospective and Daily Stand Up templates to their associated pages.  Each template shows plainly on the respective pages, but the fields are locked.  i.e. I can't input a "Date", "Team", "Participants", or "Start", "Stop", "Keep" doing sections.

I'm expecting to enter data in these fields, what am I doing wrong?

Hi @Peter Gagne welcome to Community.

Could you provide a screen capture of what it looks like when you are trying to edit the page?

Hi @Laura Campbell _Elements_ ,


Thanks for responding.  After further reading and research, I think I'm expecting an interactive table, like a data-entry table, vs. what I now believe is really a static page.

Can you please confirm that these templates and pages are actually static pages that are published and not interactive pages that can be edited ....without having to get into edit mode and then publish?

newbie here 

Templates are pre-formated pages, but you can enter data and even modify the elements of the page (like delete part of the template you don't need) when you are in edit mode.

Once you publish a page and are looking at it, the interaction is limited: you can activate some table sorting, open or close an expand macro.... But to add or change content you need to be in edit mode. Think of Confluence pages like Wikipedia pages and not like Google docs.

With this difference between what you see in the edit and published modes, you can do nifty things like add a table of contents macro in the edit mode, and then get automatic anchor links to all the headings in your document in the published mode.
