How can I create a multievel heirarchy directory listing of Spaces on the Dashboard

I have a system which will have potentially hundreds of Spaces, perhaps more so I need a directory structure to the Spaces on the Dashboard where I can drill down using "+" buttons (like in List pages view or a Windows Browser window)

I see i can add Labels to Spaces to then show them in a Category view using Browse Spaces but this could still end up with seevral dozens in one Category as it is a single level label

I was hoping there was some way of having a directory drill down - ideally allowing one Space to appear in different areas depending on which way I came in

eg

  1. Country1
    1. Site1
      1. Department1
      2. Department2
    2. Site2
      1. Department1 ...
  2. Country2
    1. .....

but that I could also access by say Site or Department

  1. Department1
    1. Country1
      1. Site1
      2. Site2
    2. Country 2
  2. Department2
    1. Country1
      1. .....

Thanks for a good question! I will be watching this one for sure. I would also like more control over the default dashboard view my users see. I know it's probably built automatically, but some layout options (ala JIRA dashboard, for example, or a nested view as described above) would be useful.

anyone got any suggestions?

I'm sure others must have lots of Spaces to manage in a heirarchy.

I found this but it is "Unsupported"

Wondering if anyone has found a good solution yet?

I have sucessfully used SubSpace Plugin in Confluence 3.5., don't know if this is supported for 4.X

You may also want to take a look at the Spacetree plugin. It allows you to create lists of spaces grouped by space category.
