💡 3 tips for organizing multiple Table Excerpts on one page

When you work with tabular data, sometimes it gets messy. The tables add up on your page, and you need to share and reuse the data, so you make copies you later forget to update. We get you, and we know the struggle.

We already have an article about reusing data in Confluence using the Table Excerpt and Table Excerpt Include macros from Table Filter and Charts. You can check it out if you need more ideas. But now, we'd like to share tips for organizing multiple excerpts and tables on one page.

1. Use page layout settings

When you place tables on a new page using the Table Excerpt Include, you can use page layout settings for convenience. This way, you can place tables side to side, create relevant charts or pivot tables with your data, and generally have a more precise overview of relevant information.

2. Align the excerpts with your goals

When you organize the page with source tables, it is essential to remember what you want to achieve. Depending on your expectations, you'll know whether to name the excerpts differently or use the same name. For example, if you need to store the tables separately on the source page but want to create a report in a different space, you can structure the data similarly and use the same excerpt name. On the other hand, if you are sure you'll use the tables separately, come up with a specific excerpt name for each.

3. Use macro-generated tables

If you need to repurpose a table generated by other macros, that is not a problem for Table Excerpt and Table Excerpt Include. For example, you can reuse a table with Jira issues or a report generated by the Page Properties Report macro. But if you used other macros from Table Filter and Charts to build pivot tables or set custom table transformations, you can repurpose this data too.
