Page Properties Macro missing data for columns with @contributors

In one of my team's pages where we collect feature documentation I have it setup to use a Page Properties with the following columns 

  • Last Updated
  • Topic
  • Purpose
  • Contributors 

Everything is working except the Contributors column, it's just showing empty data when I actually publish the page but in the 'preview' it shows the correct data.

For reference, the contributors column is pulling the @contributors macro which just grabs the authors of the parent page + all children.

Thanks for the response Shannon! 

The Page Properties macro is widely used throughout my teams space. Is there any workaround or another macro that I'm not realizing that could pull up 'authors' of pages within another report as well as other columns?

It's not vital but it seems like a pretty core function that I would expect to work and it seems a bit strange it hasn't been fixed already

Hi Laura,

You can use the Contributors Macro separately; just reference the exact page/space you want to use to display the information.

Let me know if you have any trouble with that.

Hi Shannon,

 

Thanks for the suggestion but unfortunately since the Contributors is currently populates from the page properties report there is no way to insert this into every record retrieved by the report.

 

It's not vital for now but would have been nice. Each individual page will be able to display the contributors properly

Laura,

My suggestion is to use the Contributors Macro separately, not within the Page Properties report. You'd need to insert the macro separately in each page. This is the only way you can use this at the moment, until that bug is fixed.

Regards,

Shannon
