What is the EDM Status Macro?
The Status Macro allows you to create a dropdown with a predefined status set. See Space & Global Configuration for more information on how to define status sets.
It is also possible to filter in a page property report macro for these status macros. See Filtering with the Page Property Report Macro for further information.
These Parameters can be set differently for each Status Macro.
Input Field Type
