Get content on one page from several pages

Hello guys,

I am having 10 pages for different groups of people.

I am having the problem that several people have to fill in certain parts of "their" page.

I have to summarize all this content in one page to see, which tasks or input, which people have.

Any suggestions how to implement this use case in confluence?

I appreciate your replies!

Either that, or you can include an excerpt macro on each page that you have to extract information from, and then use the excerpt-include macro on the page where you want to display it all.  That won't do the summarizing, but if you need all the information, then that might be the way to go.  You could also use a combination of this for content that has to be exactly duplicated and the Page Properties Report that Aleks talked about for stuff that needs to be summarized.

Hi Gregor,

Try Page Properties Report macro. Create a table on the child pages, with key/value columns, and the parent page can display those key/values in a table.

Thx for your answer! Do I need a special macro for a table with key/value columns? Kind regards!

No, nothing special, you just use the  page properties  as linked to on the page Aleks gave

Get the users to write their pages as they see fit.

Then create a summary page, with the include-excerpt macro to pull in the part of their pages that you want to share.  (I'd create them a template with the macro ready for them, so they have a good example)
