I've seen similar questions asked but all the answers seem out of date with the new Confluence editor. I'm using Confluence Cloud.
I am looking for a way to add a drop down box with statuses (BACKLOG, IN PROGRESS, DONE, BLOCKED, AT RISK) on a Confluence Template so that those who are using the template will be able to select the proper status and keep it updated as the status changes.
I've seen some talk about Variables but I no longer see that as an option when creating a template in Confluence Cloud so I think it might be out of date.
Hi @chrsme ,
Based on documentation, it looks like the variable is there for confluence cloud.
Follow this documentation, to build out your test template:
Hi Stephanie...Yes, It's available in cloud. When you create a global or space template, you should be able to select new variable from the "+" icon. or you can use "/" for a shortcut. Once added, just configure the name of the variable and select list and add the list of items lie Backlog, in progress, done....etc. I just tested it to make sure my information is up to date. Let me know if you have any other questions.
Thank you, Benjamin. That helped me find the Variable section so I could play around with it. I implemented that into my template but now when I create a new page from template, it has me select the right variable from the drop down on creation but then I cannot change it.
Do you know of a way to have a permanent drop down so the product team can select the right status at any time?
