Aura Status (Cloud)

The Aura Status macro allows you to add statuses (or any other type of label) to your page that users can change instantly in the page view mode by choosing from predefined options.

In our example we use it for status, priority, t-shirt size, a value between 1-10, star rating (1-5 stars), confidence vote, score, traffic light & department.

As you can probably imagine, the possibilities are endless and it's up to you how you want to use the macro.

Here are some awesome side features:

  • Changes in view mode are versioned

  • The Aura Status macro can be exported as PDF (emojis are not supported)

  • Editing in view mode is also supported in the Page Properties Report

  • Worth mentioning: only users with the edit permission can edit the Aura Status macro in page view mode of course
