Wikidata property usage proposal updateEdit

Reply to Wikipedia talk:TemplateData/Archive 3#Wikidata property usage proposal:

I would also love to have a mapping between TemplateData and Wikidata. Has this been delivered?

@Simon.letort:: per T69659, a map naming convention has not been established. --Bamyers99 (talk) 15:17, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

Suggested values feature coming soon to all wikisEdit

From April 29, it will be possible to suggest values for parameters in templates. Suggested values can be added to TemplateData and will then be shown as a drop-down list in VisualEditor. This allows template users to quickly select an appropriate value. This way, it prevents potential errors and reduces the effort needed to fill the template with values. It will still be possible to fill in values other than the suggested ones.

More information, including the supported parameter types and how to create suggested values, can be found on the TemplateData help page and the project page. Everyone is invited to test the feature, and to give feedback on this talk page.Timur Vorkul (WMDE) (talk) 16:56, 27 April 2021 (UTC)

TemplateData needed at Template:US Census populationEdit

Are any page watchers here willing to create a TemplateData section for {{US Census population}}, which has 34,000 transclusions? Thanks. – Jonesey95 (talk) 18:05, 23 May 2022 (UTC)
