The Table Plus macro adds advanced functions and formatting to Confluence tables, by:

  • Dynamically totalling numeric data.
  • Dynamically numbering each table row.
  • Defining the default sort order for the table.
  • Highlighting a row when the user hovers the pointer over it.
  • Using CSS to style the entire table or individual columns and rows.

This macro supports certain common table capabilities. This adds column sorting and other attributes to one or more tables found in the body of the macro. The tables can be produced by wiki markup or other means. Clicking a column heading sorts the column and clicking again, reverses the order. Note that the Excel, CSV, or SQL macros already have most of these capabilities.
