How can I group favourites (favorites) in Confluence ?


I am looking for a way for my users to group their favourites in Confluence. I just can find documentation about creating and deleting favourites. But if you have a lot of favourites, there seems to be the desire to sort or group them somehow - I thing to have the ability to handle them better.

I could not find a plugin for that issue either.

Thanks in advance for any helpful answers

Best regards

There is no built-in way to do this, but it could be done with a macro, or probably even a user macro. Design-wise you would probably want to group them by user labels. Users could apply labels such as my:tools, my:todo, my:projects, my:stuff, etc to their favorite pages and then the favorites would be grouped by the user label ... I think that would be the easiest way to do it and utilize as much of the existing framework as possible.

FYI, really favorites are just pages with the user label my:favourite(British spelling) applied to them.

Thank you for your helpful answer

I think Atlassian said somewhere that the ability to use my:labels is deprecated. That means, in some future release of Confluence it won't be possible to use private labels any more.

Hmmm. You are correct. Ugh! I quite like the personal labels.
