Space Templates

In the Space configuration, you’re able to create new template which will be available for users to use it as a macro on their Confluence pages in selected space.
This template will be available only for Confluence pages in this space. To use it in other spaces, you have to create a new one in the target space. If it is possible, we recommend you to create cross-spaces templates in the global configuration.
