Hi, I have created a page template for users to create new customer information pages on the site. Once a new page is created the user can see a table, similar to the one below, in the first section that they have to fill in.

Customer Information

Client Name{ Enter the Client name here }
Company Name { Enter the Company name here }
Manager Name { Enter the Manager name here }

 

Is it possible to add page properties (page columns) to the right column of the table, so instead of entering the text, users can simply select the property value from the drop-down?

Users sometimes forget to go to the page details and select in the page property. 

Thank you!

Hi @DnelsonSantogen ,

 

Scenario you explained is not possible with default text editor. You might need to create a web part for that functionality.

 

I would prefer using Page Properties and displaying those to end users. You can have choices and use managed metadata.

You could add a guidance text to your page template for instructing users to fill out page properties.
