Is there a way to select from a drop-down list in a table?

Is there a way to create a drop-down list for a column in a Confluence table (analogous to applying a Validation list to a column in an Excel worksheet) and then selecting from that list per cell in the column?  For example a column for "Priority" with drop-down list values of High, Medium, Low.

Hello @v-rapsel,

You can use the Table Filter macro with a dropdown filter for this purpose.

Thanks so much @Andrey Khaneev _StiltSoft_ 

I checked out the documentation on Table Filters and if I am understanding it correctly, the table filters are analogous to an Excel filter over unique values in a column to filter the table rows that match the filter value, not for creating a validated drop-down box for data entry into a cell in a table column.   Is that correct?



Yes, that's correct. I misunderstood you question. Table Filter won't solve your problem.
