Hi All -
Is there a way to dynamically add labels to a page in the text? Here are two examples for what I mean:
The usecase for this is to allow our users to easily enter tags in the pages they are creating as they are creating and editing the text. Ultimately, our authors will be creating a new page per project, and each project will have unique categories that will define each project (these categories we will define using labels). Therefore, we can't create a template page (or multiple template pages) that has all the labels predefined, as each page will have different and unpredictable content. We want to encourage our authors to label the pages as they are drafting the content, and the easiest way to do that would be to use a symbol before the label (see in example #1 above).
The key is to allow our users to create the label within the text since the text will be long and detailed, and it will be hard to go back through after drafting it and sifting through the text to find the appropriate labels. We would like to encourage them to create the labels as they are drafting.
Ideally, we would do this using a simple macro as opposed to paying for a pricier add on (ie. in example #2 above), since we don't need every feature this add-on has to offer.
Does anyone know of a native solution, or can help build a macro that would accomplish this? I'm new to macros and plugins so appreciate any help that's offered.
On a side note, as I post this question, the 'Tags' feature below would also be a potentialy helpful solution if it were something we could add-on easily to allow our users to select multiple visible and pre-defined labels while creating pages. Is this feature available natively in Confluence (I know it's not, but I could be wrong)?
PS. Stephen Deutsch (for some reason, I can't tag you), I would love to take you up on your offer to whip up a user macro for this... if it's still on the table 2.5 years later. https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-questions/automatically-adding-labels-to-confluence-page/qaq-p/191934
