I wonder if there is a possibility via user macro or something else to generate a text block or text module in Confluence which directly shows up in edit mode. I need this because we are tracking some tasks in Confluence and many of them are assigned to the same group of people and I want to avoid retyping it for all users in the group.
In the ideal case I would like to enter the task description once and a macro generates a task list with the same task for the whole group.
No. I often have the same task which has to be applied to all members of a group:
Person A has to check the order income
Person B has to check the order income
Person X has to check the order income
I want to avoid typing this stuff in the editor n times. The ideal case would be in case a macro asks for the task "has to check the order income" and then generates a task list as shown above in edit mode. I'm not familier with macros right now but I did not see whether it is possible that a macro renders its results inside the edit mode.
You'll have to write a plugin to accomplish this. User macros are not rendered when the page is being edited. Here's where I would start:
Take a look at scaffolding and the run macros... I am not sure that either woudl totally fix your problem, though possibly both together might. but Scaffolding can provide fields to fill in, using a templating approach so that you say you need a new order income task and it comes up with a form... the run macro coudl potentially generate pages that differed depending on what kind of info was presented.
Also, Ad-Hoc workflows might be able to help if you are just looking for approval or checkign steps witha work flow that routed it through person A, B, .. X.
