Can you use an auto-numbered list inthe first column of a table?

I want to use a multi-column table to list items and need the first column to be auto-numbered. Especially as how new rows will be added between existing rows.

Hi Joseph,

when you create a table in a Confluence page, there is an option to automatically add a auto-numbered column.




Thank you. It works.

Had trouble finding this icon as it looks like this on our system:

The auto-number is the third icon in. Really looks like it is for numbering, doesn't it.

Thanks @Joseph Bach , if it weren't for you I wouldn't find this in my Confluence!

Very helpful, thank you! 

This doesn't seem to exist anymore in the cloud version - anyone know how to add the numbered column using the cloud configuration? 

You need to click anywhere in the table, then use the Table options pop-up (pop-under?):

Thanks Piotr! It seems to be working on the new pages created but not the ones converted from our old version for some reason.


We can work with this though - so long as we can create them on the new pages, they already exist on most of the older pages.

I am using the cloud version and would like to do the automatic numbering where there are merged cells in some of the rows.
Is that possible?
