Can you make Parent / Child Templates?

Dan Allenby February 14, 2024

Can you make a templated page on Confluence a parent page and link another templated page as a child page?

I want to set it so if I choose the parent templated page all of the child pages are created swell.

@Dan Allenby this behavior is currently not supported in Confluence Cloud. Each page creation activity is viewed as a single activity and is not tied to the specific parent page or space it is in.

Thanks @Andy Gladstone .  Appreciate the quick response.

@Dan Allenby A possible workaround

If you have a set of pages that you want to create under every parent page:

  1. Create a separate template for each child page.
  2. On your template for the parent page, add a Create from Template macro for each child page (use Button Text like "Create ABC page" and "Create XYZ page"). See https://support.atlassian.com/confluence-cloud/docs/insert-the-create-from-template-macro/ 
  3. On the parent page template, add placeholder text instructing the person who creates the parent page to remove the macros after they create all of the child pages.
