Managing Filters in Page View Mode

Table Filter for Confluence add-on allows you to manage filters in the page view mode. You can add all types of filters, remove the unnecessary filters, and regulate the order of filters on the filtration pane and set their width. You can save all the modifications, including the selected or specified filtration values in the macro body on the fly.

Starting from version 3.1.0 Table Filter add-on supports management of filters in the view page mode. In such a way, you can manage filters of all types, including the box for hiding specific columns of the table.

You may encounter the four situations, as follows:

You have inserted the table into the Table filter macro, added filters and saved the page.

In this case, you will see the screen similar to the one displayed. You can add new filters by clicking the cogwheel icon and then selecting Add filter.

You have inserted the table into the Table filter macro and saved the page without any configuration.

In this case, you will see the screen similar to the one displayed. You can add the required filters by clicking the cogwheel icon and then selecting Add filter.

You have inserted the table into the Table filter macro and enabled automatic row numbering or/and default sorting.

In this case the filtration is displayed as collapsed. You can expand it by hovering over the table header and clicking the appeared expanding pane. Then you can add filters by clicking the cogwheel icon and selecting Add filter.

You have not inserted the table into the Table filter macro.

In this case, you will see the corresponding notification about the missing table in the macro body. You will have to switch the page to the edit mode and insert the table into the macro body. Then you can add the filters either when editing the page or viewing it.
