Is there a way to display page statuses next to titles in the content section of Confluence?


I wanted to discuss the current status indicators for the pages, like "In Progress," "On Hold," and "Done." Currently, these status options are available at the top of each page, above the title. However, I propose having these statuses displayed right next to the page titles in the content section of Confluence. This way, I can quickly grasp the status of a page without navigating to specific sections.

I researched this and found the Page Properties Report and Page Properties macros, which partially fulfill my requirement. However, I find it time-consuming to add the page properties macro to every page, especially for larger projects with numerous pages (sometimes exceeding 80 to 100 pages).

I have a couple of questions:

  1. Is there a method to display the page status directly in the content section when I update the page status on top of the Title?
  2. If not, is it possible to modify the page status directly within the Page Properties Report macro?

Hi @Ryan Paul ,

Regarding your questions:

  1. You can display the page status in a page not directly.  You'd need an addon like our Document Metadata for Confluence Cloud .  However you need to add a macro to each page for this to take effect.
  2. The page properties report macro is "view only", so you can't modify or edit the the properties inside this macro.

However there is an upcoming feature of Confluence: databases.  They might be able what to help you.

Hello Marc,

I appreciate your response. The 'Add status' feature above the Title is indeed great. However, it doesn't allow me to view the status of all pages at once.

To address this, I've been utilizing Page Report Properties and Page Properties. While it requires some effort to add these to each page, it enables me to see the statuses for each page, although to a certain extent.

Regarding the Document Metadata for Confluence Cloud, it does sound similar to what I'm currently doing adding Page report properties and page properties manually to each page. 

Therefore, for the time being, I won't be using the 'Add Status' feature above the Title. Hopefully, in the future, the developers will address this, provided other users also have the same requirement.

Also, I am looking forward to the new upcoming feature of Confluence: Databases.
