I want to create a dropdown list in a template for a user to fill out.
This article from ancient times mentions, that Confluence is able to do this: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONF42/Form+Field+Markup+for+Templates
In the current template editor I am not able to create a list or find documentation on how to do this. $VAR is working, but creates only a text field.
=> How do I create dropdowns (or radios or other specific fields) without using add-ons?
while editing the template, click on the variable $VAR and you should get a pop-up with three different options, "Text", "Multiline Text", and "List". Choose "List" and type the options that you want to have for the dropdown list separated by commas. For example, you could write:
option 1,option 2,option 3
and then once you save you should have a dropdown list in your template where you can choose between option 1, option 2, and option 3.
Hi, I am trying to create drop downs in a template like you all are. I used HTML which worked well until a new form was created then instead of the drop down, you see the HTML code, which is won't work for the user. Is there a way we can hide the HTML code so the drop down only is shown.
Second option, do we need to create a form rather than a template?
Any thoughts please, since our company will not allow us to install additional macros.
@EPS Software Engineering AGi have been using Easy Dropdown Menu for couple of years now. However, the key feature that is missing is the capability to associate links (mostly websites) to the dropdown menu options.
Something similar to this:
<select name="forma"> <option value="http://www.google.com">Google</option> <option value="http://www.amazon.com">Amazon</option> <option value="http://www.ecosia.com">Ecosia</option> </select>
Thank you so much for the message.
We created a ticket on the 14th of August 2020 with the same request as you have above. We are most definitely looking at making this a functionality of Easy Dropdown Menu however, we do not have a specific release date as of yet.
I would be able to keep you updated on our progress, if you would like, on this post.

Our Handy Macros for Confluence can be a solution for this use case. You can create a template with Handy Statuses and/or Handy Dates. When users create a page from this template, they can choose one of the predefined custom values of a status (a kind of dropdown menu) or pick the date.
Handy Status and Handy Date can also be switched in the page view mode after saving the page. It can increase your time efficiency.
