I'm currently working on a knowledge template in a confluence space.
I'm looking for a solution to have a filed which is filled whith the current date when the template us used by a user.
How can a do this..
I would create a user macro "creationdate" (since this is what you want, I think):
## Macro title: creationdate
## Macro has a body: N
## Developed by: Thomas Schlegel
Then, add the new macro "creationdate" to your template.
The creation date of the page is the same as the usage date of the template.
This solution works however it renders the date as a simple string.
Is there any way to create a macro that creates a date as a Date Picker Object:
We would like to add dates automatically to Tasks within a Template and the string based date doesn't add as much value as the date picker which displays as a due date in the Tasks screen.
I was playing around with the data picker format for another macro. Here is some sample code to retrieve the last modified date and format in the data picker format.
Hope this helps you (or anyone else who stumbles across this.
Hi, this works really well, however I was wondering if it's possible to make the date picker editable after it has been added to the Confluence page via the macro, so that the date can be changed. Additionally, is it possible to get last modification date + 1 day or + 2 days?
You create a user macro in your admin section.
The user macro is added the same way as a regular macro. You find it in your list of macros after you've created it.
I've written an article about creating user macros, maybe it helps you:
But if not, don't hesitate to ask again :-)
Good Morning Thomas,
I tried out your macro and it works well so far but...only in a native page template like "plain page"
Whe I try to place it in a template like "knowledge article" it didn't work !?!
