How can I update tables simultaneously across other pages in Confluence?

Scott Federman February 20, 2019

I have a table on one page in confluence that i want to copy onto another. However, when either one is updated, I want it to automatically update the other. 


Is this possible? 


If not, is it at least possible that the table on the main page, when edited,  reflects on the other replicated tables on the other pages?

As I see this was an old issue, has any new capability been implemented recently for creating and updating synchronized tables in confluence? 

I would ideally like to filter them independently if possible. I would be a nice added functionality to this equation! Is there any way of doing this? 

Thanks in advance!

Hi @Mario Plagaro,

We can suggest using our Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app and its Table Excerpt/Table Excerpt Include macros.

You’ll be able to reuse your source table several times (all the changes made to the original table will be reflected in the reused tables automatically) and filter/visualize each copy independently. You’ll get a kind of a dashboard based on one source table.

Maybe you’ll be interested in a live demo from our team – we’ll be happy to organize it.

Hi Scott,

Check out the Excerpt and Excerpt Include macros.  Any edits made to the table on the main page (in the Excerpt macro) would be reflected globally on all other pages (using the Excerpt Include macro).  I don't know of an easy way to have multiple instances of a table, except maybe using a Google doc in a Widget Connector macro.

Good luck!

You were faster than me Jared! Thanks for hopping in.

Yeah, having a "master table" inside a excerpt macro should work as intended.

Keep sharing with the Community!
