Add status to the page tree macro

We store all our documentation including specifications on Confluence. I would like to see easily which specifications are approved by the stakeholders and which are pending. Right now the way we do it is manually.

I would ideally like to create a page of space tree where next to each page a status (either throught a label or otherwise) can be seen.

Is there anyway to do this?

It sounds to me like the page properties and page properties report macro is what you are looking for. You put the page properties macro on all the pages that have a status, and then you create a page where you put the page properties report macro. It will then report on the page that have the properties macro and show you the status(or any other key you define) for those pages. Below are links to the documentation for these.

Exactly what I needed. Thanks a lot!! It would be nice if properties macro report preserved hierachy and displayed the child pages under the parent pages for better organization.

new here, but dont think its possible, but it would be a gread addon functionality if they add the ability to do that

I dont think it is possible either but I am hoping there is a plugin out there that can do this.

The macro isn't customisable in that way. Even if it were, you'd need to define exactly how you tell Confluence what the status of a page is before you could use it.
