We are currently trying to create a wiki space where users are supposed to create documentation of the systems used in the company. We have a few tables and in some of the cells i want there to be a dropdown menu where there are predefined values for the users to choose from, for instance "Criticality" --> dropdown menu with High, Medium, Low etc.. So far i've been out of luck in my search to fix this, so any help would be greatly appriciated ;)
You can add my suggestion to a template, but I'm not sure it's what you want. I can't find a drop down list macro, but there may be a 3rd party in the Marketpalce who make one.
Slightly ugly I know, but you could have a column heading for each level and put the tick box in the heading. All a user has to do then is tick the appropriate column.
Unfortunately, we have no plans for Handy Macros for Cloud at the moment. But you can vote for this here.
Just to clarify the reason: Cloud and Server add-ons require totally different approaches due to technical limitations on Cloud. There are not many requests to support Cloud right now (that's why we haven't planned this activity yet). But this is possible in the future.
Maybe our App Easy Dropdown Menu could be a solution. It can be found on the Atlassian Marketplace.

Easy Dropdown menu is easy enough to use. We have in-use on our downs. It make confluence more like forms, instead of a wiki.
Note: The multi-select option for this is does not look like a traditional 'drop-down' menu, but at least there is a multi-select option.
I've just done this, but I'm not sure it's exactly what you're looking for. This is what I made it work:
I tested it by navigating away from the page and back again via several others, and when I clicking on 'Click here to expand' the tick was still there, and where I wanted it to be.
Does that do the job?
(haven't tried it yet), but as it looks by your explanation i cannot do this when creating a global template? (Im using Confluence 4.2.11)
Here's an example:
|1|Appliaction Name / Version:| | |
|2|Number of users:| | |
|3|Criticality:| | | <--- Here's where i want a dropdown menu where the users can put in either "High", "medium", or "low"..
|4|Network:| | |
|5|Application type:| | |
|6|Vendor:| | |
|7|File paths:| | |
Just another example of Atlassian community not providing the simplest of feature for page creation. Give the cost of their licenses, you'd think they be able to provide a faster turnaround on some of these simple features like a drop-down menu option
Maybe you can use the simple HTML Drop Down list within HTML Macro:
This solution is nice because it is simple, but I am failing to see how the value is saved from one session to the next.
Won't each session just repopulate the drop down with the top value (i.e. "high")?
I am trying to implement the drop down to filter a confluence table. This table contains of two columns 1. Page title and 2. Category.
What i want to achieve is to apply the drop down filter to the category and be able to filter based on that.
When i add the code to the confluence html macro, i get the drop down, which is great but how do i link the drop down menu options with the table?
P.S i am very new to the world of coding so please bare with me :)
