How to add username and a date to a page / page template

I want a user to create a page from the template I provide with their name and the date (Monday if possible)  prefilled for them.

Since we are working in the Cloud environment writing out macro using something along the lines: $action.remoteUser.name is out of question as these are not supported.

Any idea how can I do this?

No guarantees, but I bet you can do something with Forms for Confluence.

Thanks Milo,

Would be good to get some internal Confluence variables though. I do not need to create a form to be filled, just make creating a simple page faster for the logged-in user.

Adding a paid-for-feature each time we bounce off the Cloud version of the Confluence as opposite of the server is unsupportable longer term. There is a role for these where you need to add something complicated or someone makes something particularly elegant to use, but I know I think what needs to be done, just Cloudiness is getting in the way wink

Sadly, I don't think there is any other way in Cloud.
