Hello, I have a weekly status page (parent) which contains many child pages in it. These child pages are updating by many different teams. I have to prepare a summary out of all child page(s) by opening each one, which is very time consuming.
I am looking for an opportunity to build a date column in parent page, which I need to auto populate the modified date from each child page to their respective column on parent page.
** Modified date is the one which shows on page header with the modifier name.
Appreciate any leads on this. Thank you!
@Finu Augen a great way to accomplish this is to utilize the Page Properties Macro with the Page Properties Report Macro. If you utilize the page properties macro on each child page, and embed the page properties report macro in the parent page, you can utilize the last modified option on the report to pull in the last modified time and date of the child pages.
I hope this helps. Let me know if it does.
I'm not sure what you are looking for. My reports show the last modified date, same as on the page.
Hi @Andy Gladstone . Yes, I was able to make it. My initial ask was how I can read the last modified date from child page banner to the parent page. The page properties do the job, but the user have to enter the date manually to the column and then to read to parent page. But anyway, I am getting the report as I expected. Thank you for your all support!
Hi @Finu Augen ,
We have just released a free app that can embed the last modified date in the page. This can be used with the page property macros as above, but you don't have to enter it manually.
The property name is "Page Version creation date"
hi @Andy Gladstone , the Page Properties Macro and Page Properties Report Macro. do not supprt DISPLAYING dates of the reported pages. You would have to manually write the dates to the table within the Page Properties Macro on each page. There is no way to automaticall populate the date into the table that is inside Page Properties Macro and there is no functionality to set up this population in the Page Properties Report Macro itself. If you check the support page for the macro, there si no descrition, how to "show date of modification"
Can you show more in detail, how you get the date on your page?
Hi @Richee Pitchee ,
These macros are substitutes for the Page Properties/Page Properties Report macros but allow you to display a wide range of meta data:
- page title
- parent page
- last modifier
Hope it may help your case.
@Richee Pitchee if you place the page in edit mode and click on the ✏ (pencil) icon to edit the Page Properties Report Macro, under Options click show and scroll to the bottom of the options, you will see a check box for Show last modified time.
