Is it possible to bulk change the row title in the page properties?


In my project, I have one template for requirements where I use a page properties element. I have already created dozens of pages, and I need to change the row name in the properties table on all of the pages. Is it somehow possible to do this just once by bulk change on all the pages or am I doomed to manually edit each page one by one?
If I change the row name only on the new pages, then in the page properties report I would have two different rows, the old one and the new one and that's something I don't want.

Hey @Dominika Krowiak

I hope your Monday is going well so far? Please have a seat and take a deep breath. You have to be strong now. πŸ˜„

Yes, you are doomed to edit every page.

Unfortunately, you can't get around it due to the page-based approach of page properties in Confluence and the fact that the report is just a display of the data. As you said, without harmonizing it, you will simply have a new column in the report.

I don't know your exact use case, but I have a strong feeling that you've already encountered other limitations using page properties. (Speaking from experience with Confluence... πŸ˜„) If you are interested in alternatives for better structuring and organizing your pages and all kinds of data, like inline editing from anywhere, you should take a look at our Orderly Databases app. You can read more about it in our community post: Replace Confluence Page Properties with Notion-like Databases 🐝 

Sorry I didn't have better news for you... πŸ˜…

Best, Max

Well, I guess I will keep the wrong row name then :smile: Thanks for your reply.
