Datepicker in Confluence template

Hi All,

Just wondering if anyone knows a way to include a datepicker in a confluence template?



4 answers

I don't have the time to experiment, but, what would happen if you type double forward slash "//" in the template?

I wasn't able to make this work. I had hopes it would.

Was this ever addressed? I'm looking for adding a date picker field in a template, and I can't find anything that would help.

Hello Alicia, afaik we do not have something that specific that works for the current version, nevertheless there is a @currentDate variable which may be of use, more about varibles in templates here.

Hi, the double forward slash seems to work fine for picking a date when editing a page. However, what Alicia might be looking for (and what I'm definitely looking for) is a macro that lets page viewers see and pick a date from a date picker. For example, we want to offer page viewers the option of picking a beginning and ending date, and then show a list of articles that were published within that date range. Any ideas for that? Thanks.

Hi Alicia,

Our Add-on Page Tree Creator works a bit different than the Confluence blueprints / templates. The PTC-templates are based on normal confluence pages and therefore creating a PTC-template is as simple as creating a Confluence page. Use the tag __Current_Date__ to get the current date at any place on a page.

Try our Live Examples (no registration needed).
