Labelling/tagging content within a page

Hi all,

Newbie Confluence user here - apologies if this is a basic question.
I'd like to tag/label content within a page (e.g. within a table) so that I can pull that data or parts of that data to summarise in another page. Something like how the Page Properties and Page Properties Report macro functionality works by pulling in the label you've attached to a page - I'm looking for something at the content level not at page level.
Make sense, sound possible or am I dreaming? smile

Up-voting your idea since I loved this featured of OneNote; inline tagging allowed me to find certain parts of pages very quickly. OneNote on Windows even allows to automatically generate "tag report" pages, similar to what you're requesting here. If searching for emoticons worked, those could be used alternatively. I up-voted this idea here:

I vote for this too. I'd like to be able to tag content within a page to be referenced elsewhere on the page (like a jump-to) or to be referenced on another page.  A link not to a page, but to content within the page.

Yep, exactly what I need. I am trying to create a wiki for our products and I need an anchor/ label which can be pulled from an index page.

I also want this feature as this would be powerful to be able to take a single set of content and then define tagging for different structural frameworks to then build out other pages dynamically based on a particular topic.

Yep, exactly what I need right now too.

Count me in as an up-vote too.  I would really like this functionality.

OK, So I found an answer to this that is going to suit me.

I used {excerpt} and added the content that I want to be displayed somewhere else inside the excerpt box.

And then I used {Excerpt include} to display the excerpt content from the other page.

This allows me to summarise the info from a few pages into a Quick Reference page.

So instead of labelling specific content on a page, it goes in an {excerpt} box.

Yes, I found this function as well but it's not quite fit for purpose. Seems like with excerpt inclusion each time you want to pull excerpts from a new page you have to create a new inclusion macro. It'd be nice to just create the inclusion macro once and have it pull content from any new page with the specified tag. Could be I don't understand how the function works as well!

Looks like in 4 years no one has found anything.

I think label on the fly within context is a must-have!

Five Years. My brain hurts a lot...

Five. Years. Later...

is there still no solution for this? FIVE years later?

Would love this too. 

Another upvote for tagging content within a page.

Indeed, I am also tying to tag/label specific contents form pages and then to be able to collect all of these marked contents (ideally being able to define the area for the recollection, a space, a set of pages or all children pages of a specific page) and to display the collected items on another page. ( as a list, as a table...)

I also fully support this feature, 'content as data' would be fantastic - we have a need to summarise multiple pages that have individual tables, and would like to have a summary page that combines all these tables on the one page.
