Link Status Macro accross pages

tlambot Jul 28, 2017

Hello,

 

I am developping a dashboard that keeps track of status of various items. At the same time, I would need to have that status in other pages throughout confluence.

 

Is there a way to have a unique status macro that is replicated in other pages, such as if I change the status macro in the dashboard, that change is applied to all the other copied versions of it?

It sounds like you could use the Excerpt and Excerpt Include macros to accomplish this. I look forward to hearing whether they work for your use case.

Actually that's almost that!

The problem is that with Excerpt I can have only 1 excerpt by page (When I do Excerpt include, it just picks the first one), or I am missing something?

The Excerpt Macro can only have one. There are add-ons on the Atlassian Marketplace that support multi-excerpts.
