It is very simple to create a task and within creating the task, assign a due date with // and an assignee with @.
However, I have a list of tasks in confluence (unassigned and undated) that need to be repeatedly used. For each time I use the tasks, I want to take user input data and then reassign the data  to each task - instead of manually placing details in, myself. 

I have figured out how to take in user input for a date and an assignee, then attach the date and assignee to a task. the date turns colored and the assignee turns purple, it is very clear that confluence is reading them as a date and a user all within the task made.

^showing the two tasks, one with a manual date entered and one with an automated date. 

 

Then on another page, the task report will NOT identify the automated data and appropriately sparse it, like it does the manual data. image.png

^the Due Date is only seen for the manually inserted date and NOT the automated date.

 

How can I fix this so that the Task Report will acknowledge the automated data within a task?

@Haley Smallwood Welcome to the Atlassian community

While the service rocket macro might render the date properly on the page it is still a macro when you edit the page.  The task report needs a date to properly parse and display and most likely can not extract it from the macro.  I am not aware of a dynamic way of doing it on pages.  If you were to use a page template you could add instructional text to help the user.
