Can I somehow add content in a new table row without going into edit mode? Edited

I know this does not work out of the box, but it would be really extremely convenient.

Many employees are not the biggest fans of documentation. We want to have some form of chronological documentation in a table. The additional step of going into edit mode can turn some people down. Adding comments in Confluence is very easy, and I would love to be able to add content to new table rows just like that.

We use the Table Filter and Chart for Confluence plugin to apply filter and search features.

Is there some option to get this done?

Hi @Markus Raab ,

The Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app is one of our apps, so we are happy that you find it useful for your tables.

What concerns adding/deleting table rows from the view mode, I'm not really sure if there are any plugins on the Atlassian Marketplace that allow you to perform such operations.

If to talk about editing table data in the view mode (I mean, editing existing table cells), it is possible with the help of additional apps, so you should browse the Marketplace.

For example, we have the Handy Macros for Confluence app which Handy Status and Handy Date macros allow you to update statuses and dates on the fly from the page view mode. 

Thanks a lot - yes, I know the Handy Macros as we purchased it already at my last company.

I did some research and could not come up with any solution either. Confluence is, unfortunately, a bit lacking when it comes to such things.

Great work @Table Filter and Charts - all the best with your further developments.

No, there is no way to do what you want. What is so hard with user having to type 'e' to edit the page?
