Confiforms - Filter/View Data

I have a Confiform built with dozens of records.

I wish to give the user a drop down box populated with the "Project Name" of each record, which they may select, then populating a custom view of all the fields in the form.


have a searchable box on "Project Name" from which they could select, view all fields in the record in a custom layout.

Is there an example I can view for this?  I've tried searching the various knowledge bases without finding this exact scenario.

Of course you can filter the data stored within ConfiForms forms. Either by setting up the filter inside the view (TableView, CardView, etc) or by using ConfiForms Filter Control macro with a view to have a "view" filtered dynamically.


Thnx, I'm looking for an example to allow selection of a record from a specific field, say "Name".  Then once the name from the list is selected, the entire record (all fields) are populated.

Second link in my answer shows exactly how to do that... You setup a  "ConfiForms Filter Control" macro (+ add the ConfiForms Field for the field you want to use as a "filtering field") and add the view macro with detailed view of the field...

Really, check the link mentioned  earlier: 

If you have any difficulties setting it up feel free to raise a support issue:

also, there is a way to use something called "ConfiForms EntryViewer" macro - see examples

An alternative way to show "record details"

Thnx, what I'm after is the Confiforms "Tab" method described at

However there is an error in the code (see screen shot below).

I was successful regarding getting a working model of the filter/view data on a single field, but I'm after populating many fields on a screen (or preferably tab).  The documentation for this appears to be from a prior version of Confi... but I was successful in following.  For this method I was user the Form Filter Control, then Table View.  However the Table View is rendering all the fields in a row and I'm after a custom view with fields both horizontal and vertical arranged in a custom order.  


THNX for the help.

Partial success, 

Configured a Form Filter Control with a single field in it "name"

Configured a List View with a custom layout inside a Confluence Panel macro.

At first the page returns all records (vertically) one after the other in the layout configured in the Panel macro.

If I search on "name" from the drop down, select "Filter", the single record chosen is correctly displayed in the panel.

How do I (at first) filter out all records.

You add a filter (parameter) to your ListView to be something like


Thank you sir!

Hi, I am going to dock on this conversation because my question falls under a similar topic.

I am using Confiforms Cloud, but the Dynamic Filter does not seem to be supported yet, right? Is there an alternative way for someone to filter the table "on the fly" - i.e. a drop-down above the table or as a typical column filter we know from Excel?

Hi @Frank Rentef ,

Check the Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app. This add-on works with the Confiforms perfectly well: you'll be able to use our Table Filter macro and filter your projects by names and any other parameters.

Here are several examples how to enhance Confiforms with filters, pivots and charts.

As you can see, the Confiform macro is wrapped inside the Table Filter macro and can be filtered like a plain Confluence table.

This is a third party app for $$$ it appears.  I am hoping to find a solution native to Confiforms.


Looking to search a field for a record, then once selected display all the fields in the record....
