This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Add, Assign, and View Tasks
I have a customer who wants a task list with indications of progress. Documentation on the Tasklist macro seemed to fit the bill possibly, but I can't find this macro in the macro browser. We are on 5.10.2. All I can find is Task Report, which does not have all the functionality required.
According to the note at the bottom of this page: "The wiki markup based Tasklist Macro has been removed from the macro browser. If you have a Tasklist macro on a page it will continue to work, but you will be unable to add new Tasklists using this macro."
Digging a little deeper, this happened in the Confluence e5.5-OD-22 release, but there's no explanation of why they removed it, just the announcement that they did.
You can probably find a suitable replacement in the Atlassian Marketplace.
@Kate Hanna I cannot find the task list macro on my Cloud test instance but if you are still on Confluence server (5.10.x or above) you may find it on the insert menu:
I am not sure why it doesn't appear when you type a curly bracket - I have a feeling it is by design, though.
Thanks @Ann Worley. I use that task list regularly. What I was looking for was something like this:
I use server instance, about 6.3 I think, and when I insert a task list macro, I just get a checkbox list like this:
Whereas the link above describes something different:
I use task report to report on tasks, but even that does not give the experience above.
Is this no longer available?
For what it is worth, the add-on continues to work. So if you have a page with the macro, it is easily copied. If you have the source editor add-on enabled, you can also paste this in to get the task list macro added to a page:
<ac:structured-macro ac:macro-id="71e737c8-cd51-4a53-b49b-67a94425b59a" ac:name="tasklist" ac:schema-version="1">
<ac:parameter ac:name="title">Task List Title</ac:parameter>
|F|M|F|| ||Task list item|]]></ac:plain-text-body>
This is not guaranteed to work into the future. As @Adam Barnes previously stated, it was the victim of changes made to how tasks work in Confluence. These macros are still nice, but they don't plug into the system-wide notification system which is a big part of the update in 5.5.
I attended Atlassian Summit 2019 and learned a lot from the presenters, attendees and knowledgeable Atlassian product managers. The presentations I attended focused on applying Agile, pla...
