Is there a way to put a drop down menu in a table?

Creating a table and want to add a status drop down menu in final column is there a way to do that?

Hi @Juels Vaughn ,

You may use the Handy Macros for Confluence app.

Its Handy Status macro allows you to create pre-defined sets of statuses or options, use them inside your tables and switch them easily in the page view mode.

Hi @Katerina Kovriga _Stiltsoft_ Is there a reason this is not already built into your Tables and Charts for Confluence? It would make sense to have drop down lists built into the table product....?



Hi @Chris Jackson ,

The Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app concentrates mostly to replace the tandem "Excel+Confluence", so that you don't need to switch between two separate systems: you can filter data, create pivots, perform calculations and create advanced graphs right in Confluence. The next big feature on our roadmap is to support Spreadsheets right in Confluence along with standard Excel formulas.

And the Handy Macros for Confluence app is related more to content formatting (Handy Status, Handy Date, Handy Button, Handy Tips) and Confluence workflow (Handy Tasks, Handy Reminders). The popularity of the app doesn't "depend" on the number of tables that are used within your Confluence - its macros work within plain text as well as within tables.

And I really can't say that our customers always buy this two apps as a bundle or request to combine any features.
