Hi everyone, my name is Rory - I’m a Product Manager from the editor team. Thanks for your continued feedback on this ticket. I wanted to share a few updates on it’s status.
Firstly, I’m excited to confirm that the changes to table extensibility are now generally available.
What is table extensibility?
Table Extensibility allows elements, such as a data macro, to act as the source of another element. Confluence Cloud users can then create transformer macros – such as pivot tables – or build visual charts that reference the data in a source table. Additionally, users can chain multiple macros together to create a more complex relationship between multiple sets of data. This allows real-time viewing of the visualization as the data changes.
More details on this feature can be found here.
Secondly, it appears that a clarification is required to this ticket. Although the recent work on Table Extensibility will unlock new value for Confluence Cloud users, it will unfortunately not enable tables to be nested within one another in the new editor. We apologise if this was not made clear previously.
As of today, our position on nesting tables within tables has not changed from what has been previously communicated. However, with the continued momentum this feature request has within the community we plan to re-evaluate this position over the coming months and provide a further update as soon as we can. To reflect this update I will be moving this ticket back to the “Under Consideration” while it is reviewed.
My team and I would love to learn more about your use of nested tables, and more generally about your use of tables in the editor. If you are interested in speaking with us directly then please feel free to book time using the Calendly link below.
