How do you guys add notes on pages that are summaries of other pages?

So we're creating pages to manage our projects. We have a table at the top that contains summary information for the project status, blockers, etc. 

We have another page that reads those page properties and creates a summary table of all our projects. If someone wants to make a note on what's discussed on our weekly meeting, how would you go about doing that? 

Currently we've got all the information pasted in by hand and have a new notes page week by week and this is excessively manual. Still, if the manager wants to put notes in there, he can type it in to the spare column for notes on the side of the other information. 

If we are reading that dynamically, he can't really put notes in when it's in normal view mode because you can't edit and any page comments you make don't display properly due to commenting on dynamic content. 

If you edit the page to add comments, you no longer see the dynamic content and there's no way you could line up your comments to match the rows on the other side. 

The most obvious solution is to just open the project in a new tab if you need to make comments and put them in at the very top. Either it's going to be a comment that resolves in short order like "Bob, confirm the date of x" and it gets resolved or it's something of more significance that becomes part of the document like "Add Bob as the secondary contact." 

Any suggestions appreciated!

Hi @Gregory Muir ,

We can suggest using the Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app and its Table Transformer macro.

You need to wrap your Page Properties Report macro and an additional table with the Title/Comments columns in the Table Transformer macro and lookup the two tables by the unique Title column.

In the view mode you'll see an additional Comments column that is added to your Page Properties Report. If you want to type in any notes, you go to the Edit mode and fill in your mini Title/Comments table.

As your mini table is only merged with the Page Properties Report macro, it doesn't affect the dynamic content.

Here is our blog post that shows how to add columns to other tables (navigate to the How to add columns to reused tables section - in our example we add columns to a pivot table and in your case it will be Page Properties Report instead).

Thank you! We will review this option.
