I need a way to be able to add some pre-written text to a confluence page when editing.
My company often lists certain tasks with different bits of information and they want a way to be able to simply insert a template of text so that they only have to fill in the missing information, rather than copy and paste from previous tasks.
It seems like a really simple issue, but i'm struggling to find a solution. I'm assuming creating a macro is the right answer. Feel free to tell me I'm wrong!
Thanks in advance for any answers
Do you need something different from the built in template functionality? Confluence allows you to create templates which have pre-defined text in the page, and then you can have people edit this pre-defined text. You can even set variables so people fill it in like a form.
Here is some more information:
If you want just one section to be pre-defined, then that is a different story.
There's a couple of approaches, but there's a distinction we need to clarify.
When you add this macro, do you expect it to create a set of pre-set text and then remove itself? Or should it remain as a macro on the page which always displays the pre-set text when the page is viewed?
If it's the first, there's not actually a lot you can do - macros are mostly supposed to run when a page is viewed. There are some options when first creating a page, but the best place to look is the add-ons in the marketplace.
If it's the second, then it's easy, and you have options
