DetailsPTC Buttons allow simple and fast creation of new page trees.



PTC Button Macro can be inserted on a regular confluence page. With a click on the button the page tree can be recreated at a new target. Parameters that can be configured are explained in the next section.



Button Name

Any name you can think of is allowed, also special characters. You can also use tags if you need to.
2Source Page

Specifies the root page of your template. This template is a normal confluence page. When the button is clicked, the root page and all its children are used as template for the new page tree.

  • This field is required.
  • "@self" uses the current page as root page. You can also use the final page name.

Hover over the page in the drop down selection list, it will show you the space the template is located in.
