How to create a customized Table of Contents in a Confluence space?


Does anyone know if it is possible to create a customized Table of Contents for a Confluence space (not a  TOC macro on a page, but for an entire space), that meets the following requirements:

- It is auto-updated
- It details what are 'new' pages within the space, and when they were added
- shows when the pages were last updated

- shows which pages were most recently updated

If so, it would be great to know how to customize a space to meet these requirements...thansk for any answers!

Please check out these two macros:

Recently Updated Macro

Activity Stream Macro

I look forward to hearing whether either of them suits your use case.

Thanks, but I'm actually speaking to the page tree navigation on the right side...anyway we can visually indicate which pages are new, or which were updated recently?

Here is an example of a recently updated macro on the right side:

Do you mean the sidebar on the left, where it says Overview, Pages, Blog, etc? If so, and you are in Cloud, that content is no longer customizable (Deprecating custom content in the space sidebar) but if you are running your own instance you can add macros to the sidebar using wiki markup.

Apologies, yes I meant left....yes we do run our own you happen to know if wiki markup a built in feature, or do we need to do something to access?

It's built in. You don't have to enable anything, etc.

You may use the wiki markup example at the bottom of the linked page, changing the author name and space name as appropriate.

The tricky part is, it's not under Configure Sidebar. You have to go to Space Tools>Look and Feel>Sidebar, Header and Footer, then paste the wiki markup in the sidebar section.

Hi Ann, Thanks again for this information.  When I click on space tools dropdown on the bottom of the left sidebar, I do not see Look and Feel as an option?

It should be there if you have admin permissions on the space:

If you are the administrator of the instance you can add your permissions to the space at Confluence Admin>General Configuration>Space Permissions.
