Linking content between pages/tables

David Pastl May 29, 2017

Hello,

Is there a method to which content can be linked together?  For example, if I have a table of various equipment and within that table a column exists indicating where in the building the equipment is, can a new table be created that lists all equipment in a particular room?

I think it's fairly similar to the tasks macro that exists, but not for people.

Cheers,

Would the page properties macro set do what you need to do:

page-properties-macro

I looked at it but it doesn't work quite the way I want.  Mostly how it makes the reports mean that I can't have multiple columns.

What I want is a database, which really isn't what this is meant for haha.

Then maybe you need to look at this paid plugin: Reportin Plugin

I have used this before to pull metadata from multiple pages to then create a tabulated report. Even took the data to create a management-friendly pie chart of the data. ;-)

The only issue I have had with the reporting plugin is figuring out the correct key chain to pull the data -- not always clear what the chain should be.

I think, it could work:

enter your table data in macro "page properties" including the column 'locatioon'; add a specific label to your page(s).

somewhere else (or on the same page) insert the macro "page properties report". Here only select the columns needed e.g. 'location'
