Features for custom template


I am trying to create a template of a document with a lot of field but with only few answers possible each time. Currently, i use a word template with blank field, fields with a menu of 2 or 3 items and some fields with multiple choice questions (i just click on the right answer to add a stick)

It is not a problem to deal with blank field in confluence but do you know a possibility to have a menu in the template in order that the user just chooses an item between three and does not write anything ?

Thanks for your attention.

Hi Corentin,

If I understand your question correctly, you want to create a template that has a selectable dropdown field with a few choices. If I've misunderstood this, please let me know. For that requirement, you should be able to do it following these instructions:


There is also a detailed discussion of options for a similar question here:


Let me know if that's what you're looking for.

Thank you for your answer but it is just a part of my question. For some general fields, it is a very good solution. But my problem is also the following, the user does not know all the answers when he creates the document. So i would like to create selectable dropdown field in the document (and not just before creating it) in order that the user can save is work and continue later.

Or is-it possible to add some html code in my template like this ?

<input type="checkbox" >123<br>
<input type="checkbox" >456

And that will read as html when a user uses the template ?
