Checklist macro but without child pages?


During test of our system we create one page with several table where each line is one functionality to test. When tester finish test of given functionality he or she modifies row (fill name of person who perform test, give a result of test and in case of error give a ling to Jira issue).

Currently it is one Confluence page with many tables where each table has more or less 30 rows. Such solution is not perfect because we encounter problem with parallel modification and each time tester has to press Edit.

I've found Checklist plugin, it offers almost everything we need but I do not understand why there is no possibility to generate checklist without subpages :(

Is there possibility to generate checklist but without creation of subpages or maybe you can propose other plugin.

I've attached screenshot what I created using checklist macro, it is almost what we need but in "Functionality" column we expect to store free text instead link to child page.

Hi Michal,

I'm not sure if you can modify the plugin's behavior like that, it might be worth to confirm with the plugin vendor Comalatech (assuming that you're using this plugin

Comalatech Support:

As for a workaround, did you give it a try to the TaskList macro? It allows you to create and update a list of tasks on the wiki page, and users can modify the tasks without having to edit the page. =)

Hope it helps!

I've though about using 'TaskList' but in the task list you cannot enter eg. information about JIRA issues related to the found error and user cannot add comment to task :(
