I feel like I'm missing something obvious but is there a way to insert a standard text quickly while editing a page?
For example: During a meeting we'll often mention a project and need to add some specific details about it (lets say client name, start date for simplicity). I'd like to press a few keys to add
to the page, ready to have the details filled in. Surely that's possible?
In practice the prompt list we want to add is several items long and varies with context so I'd like to set up 3 of these shortcuts/macros/autocompletes or whatever is the best way to do it. I've looked at all those routes and none seem to allow quite what I want.
What am I missing!?
Thanks in advance to anyone who answers.
Confluence does not currently have any "text snippets" features.
Templates in Confluence (as suggested by @SJ) are good for predesigned entire pages - not what you want.
There may be a Confluence App in the Atlassian Marketplace that would have this feature. Worth a look. Many have free trials, so you can experiment with them.
I suspect you could find some browser add-ons that will do this for you. I can't recommend any, as I haven't used them. But I see that at least one exists. You probably want to share these snippets with anyone editing the page. A browser add-on likely won't do that.
You can also vote for CONFCLOUD-57838 which is an existing enhancement request for a feature like this in Confluence (requested over 4 years ago, with only a few votes).
Be aware that the term "snippet" in Confluence tends to refer to "code snippets" and the related code formatting macros (a different thing than you want).
Hi @Phyllis Davies @SJ ! I am a new PM on Confluence Templates! This post caught my attention! it sounds to me like you ay be trying to create templates for content that can go into a page... not necessarily an entire page template itself. If you are interested and available, I'd enjoy scheduling a brief zoom call to learn more about your use case and specific needs here. Thanks!
