Page properties macro problem

Hi All,

the Page properties macro is a great feature that enables excellent reporting.

We created a reporting template with more than 30 lines need to be filled by users. The page template has Page prpoerties macro on it and it feeds a reporting page that has Page properties report macro on it.

We want to make a better layout and splitted our table into 2 tables and put into 2 columns macro. So the user can fill the table in one view and doesn't need to scroll down to the 30th row.

The problem is that the Page properties macro doesn't recognize the 2nd table and doesn't provide the info to the Page properties report table.

Is there a way to make a better layout?

I mean having a 30+ row table is not so ergonomic to fill...

Thanks,

Rumi

This should work for you. Don't give either page properties macro an id. Give the page a label. Then on the report page setthe report maco to look for the label you entered and leave the field blank that asks for the Page propertied ID

Does this work for you?

Hi Davin,

thank you for your hints!

I did axactly the same you suggested and it didn't work: the row for this particular report is empty in the reporting page.

Let me ask your version of Confluence. We have 5.4.3

I see that your "Page properties report" macro edit panel has a "Page properties ID (optional)" field which we don't have.

Now it shows but only the right column. So only the 5,6,7,8 columns.

Hmmm. I'm on 5.4.4. Maybe that is the difference.

It looks like it was fixed in 5.4.4. According to CONF-32152.
