How do I add an automatic page Title in a Template?

I notice when adding a template, the page title doesn't propogate when actually using the template as a new page. How can I have an automated Title format appear?

Hello there, @May Nguyen !

As I understand, you need to automatically create page titles. This also needs to be applied using a specific template. Is that correct?

To make a long story short, I can tell you that this is possible in our Self-hosted (server/datacenter) versions of Confluence, but not in Cloud

The solution relies on User Macros, which are not available in Confluence Cloud. Here is a list of differences between Cloud and Self-hosted:

If you want to quench the curiosity, here is the community thread about this same situation:

Let me know about your findings, May!

Thanks, got it using a macros!

@May Nguyen , which macros did you end up using? I would also like the title to autopopulate from a template but I can't figure it out. Thank you!

I actually just used a Jira macro to provide guidance tips on how to re-title the document in  a particular format, but I can't find it anymore. :/

Ah, I see. Thank you anyway!

Why aren't macros available in the cloud version? Is there a plan or road map to include macros in future?

Would also like this for cloud, is it in the roadmap?

Like Anne Saunders likes this

Same here, being able to auto-generate page/template title from a variable or parent page would be super handy

Like # people like this

Any chance this will be ported to cloud?  This would be really useful.
