Hello, there are a series of pages in Confluence that I need to organize but first I need to determine how old and stale the information is versus the most recent. Then I have to take the old information/links and archive them. Can anyone let me know:
1) How can you tell the age of a confluence page or it's content? Is there any way to do that easily?
2) Once age has been determined, is there a way to archive and/or delete the page, link or content and how?
The easiest and most effective/error-proof way to do it is automatic. Better Content Archiving is now a de-facto tool for all deployment types of Confluence when it comes to:

Hi @Steven Gara
If this is still of interest and using an app is an option for your company, I heartily suggest trying the Content & Usage Report in our app Viewtracker. There are filters to look for unedited content, content without views, among many others.
I wrote about this report and its uses on our blog in detail.
Hope this helps.

If you look under the Title of most pages there will be a Month Date Year tag in the form MMM,DD,YYYY so this give the date the page was Started.
Often there is a clear date on the page stating last updated: Such as this one:
Last updated: Oct 24, 2019 by JoeBlogs
SO that is one way to see how old a page is.
To Archive you need Admin rights that allow this, but generally if it is a page you own, go to the page editor and the three dots on the right side will open a new menu that gives options to Export, Archive, Move, Copy, Delete
I hope this helps :-)
