I've created a page with the Page Properties, included a table as a test:
Created another page with the Page Properties report macro, which is showing up empty.
I made sure to put the label "research" on the page with my properties.
I am using Confluence Cloud.
What am I doing wrong?
You would only want to sort the List by Date or Name or what ever columns you are showing.
Edit the Page Properties Report Macro and Sort by Date
If you want Date in Reversed Sort, check the box:
You are not restricted to just date, any column you are displaying can be sorted (e.g. Sort by Name:
Sort by Name in reverse:
Okay I also tested it where the report page using new editor and the old pages were using the old editor and page properties macro. This worked fine.
Each old page with page properties macro must have the same label.
This is what the page looks like:
The label is key though, because it is added on the Page Properties Report and pulls in all the content. I didn't use headings, it pulled those automatically.
There is one caveat, which I see exists on the new editor, but not on the old editor, and that is Fixed vs Responsive. (perhaps I missed seeing it in the new editor), but when using the old editor for the report page, I can set my columns to fixed and adjust the columns how I want them. I was not able to do this with the new editor, and as a result some of the columns are not right.
Here is an example of what I mean:
thank you so much for the detailed explanation.
I just tried to do what you explained, however I am not sure what you mean with a heading column.
- Just a heading format within the column? Tried it, doesn't work.
- Yours looks like a heading macro within the page properties macro, if I try inserting another page properties macro, it appears underneath my initial page properties macro.
How do you do this? The only thing which looks different on my page is the table content, or the column headings how you call it.
Thanks a lot!
The Heading Column is the greyed area on your table. There are two types of headings, Heading Row (horizontal) and Heading Column (vertical). That is why one sees two icons on the table toolbar.
I created a short video showing exactly what I did. BTW I am using old editor for all test pages.
