Link Page title to a table cell


I have two queries as inline.

1. I have created a page which consists of a table with the list of components. For multiple users to get their component details registered, a buttom has been given which leads to a component macro page.

Now I need the table to be updated as an when a new page is created through the button when used by the team. I want the table to be updated with the page title for the new component created. Is this possible?

2. Can we create complex charts in Confluence linking multiple pages?

Like though confluence has details on task items and decisions, I need a pie chart which represents the % of decision taken, % of decision pending. Likewise % of tasks to be initiated, in progress and in progress.

Please note that the data here is NOT on one page and the data fetching need to be dynamic.

Kindly provide me your response on

Hi Nisha,

I hope I understand your questions.

1) - I dont understand about your compenents, but maybe you can use Table Properties and Table Properties Macro. First one create a table in page (you can hide it) and there you can saved a properties and content of properties. Then you can create a page with page properties report macro, where you will have a table with all these macros (you creating a group of properties by label in macro).

For more information:

2) - I think this is maybe possible. You can create a User Macro (better should be plugin, but it will be harder to write it). There you can set a paramaters for a pages, where you want to have a source of datas, then via JavaScript get a content of these pages and find a elements by ID and create a chart from that. So at first, on few pages you will create a Data for chart (User macro - div box with specific ID, ID should be as parametr of macro), then on chart page you insert Chart from data (User macro - Source ID you will insert the ID from previous macros, list of URLs - pages with your previous macros and another sets, it will depend on that what you want). This macro via JS use a pages from list of URLs, find element with ID and create a chart from it. If I will have a few minutes, i can try to create this user macro. But now I have a lot of work.
