Show/hide items in a checklist based on operation

We are using confluence pages to capture inspection reports. The inspection report is available as a template. Users create an inspection report page starting from the template and ticking off boxes. Photos and other info are added to fields as they work through the checklist. Depending on the operation being performed, they may need to complete all items in full checklist or only some items.

Is there a way to have the user select the operation they are doing, and then automatically hide any checks that are not relevant for that operation?

To give a more concrete example, consider servicing a car. Items in the checklist may be "change oil" and "change timing belt" (among other things). The user would input the service interval. For a 10,000km service interval the "change timing belt" item would be hidden. For a 100,000km interval all items would be shown.

Hi @Nick and welcome to the community!

Unfortunately, there is no out of the box functionality to do that. What you would want is a dynamic form, which would be a pretty good addition in Confluence, if that existed :)

Perhaps the following app could do the trick for you

I would suggest to install it for the trial period, see if it fits your needs and decide if you are going to buy it or uninstall it.


Standard Confluence could not help you much here, and you need an add-on

When you talk about dynamic forms in Confluence the option we can offer is the app we fanatically develop and support - ConfiForms

You can even create your (dynamic) pages automatically based on the answers given in a form. 


Hi @Nick 

I'm Aaron from Service Rocket.

We have two ways of doing what you are looking for. One is to use the Scaffolding Hide Data .

And the other is to use the Visibility for confluence.

Take a look at those apps and let us know if we can help you achieve your use case.
