Missing meeting notes link on meeting notes page


I am using the Meeting Notes Blueprint in Confluence 5.6.1. Previously, I had created 4 different meeting notes and everything was fine. Today, I created a fifth meeting note and its link does not appear on the meeting notes page (only the 4 previous meeting notes are shown beneath the list of open action items).

The fifth meeting notes page does exist - I can see the fifth meeting notes page in the Hierarchy View, along with the other 4 - all 5 meeting notes pages are at the same hierarchical level. I thought maybe it was presentation issue on the Meeting notes page - may be only 4 meeting notes could be displayed - I tried resorting by creation date, thinking that the fifth meeting note might float to the top - it didn't - I still only see the 4 previous meeting note links.

I deleted the fifth meeting notes page and recreated it, but that too did not solve the problem.

Please let me know if you have any ideas

The "meeting notes page" that's created from using the blueprint is simply the Content Report Table macro looking for all pages labeled as "meeting-note" within the scope of the space you first created the note. So my first thoughts on troubleshooting this would be to make sure you've not removed the meeting-note label from that fifth page. 

Thanks, Brian, but the page does have the meeting-notes label. In fact, if I create a new meeting notes page and save it without making any other changes, the new meeting notes page will also not be listed on the Meeting Notes page. It seems that any new page will not be listed.  All new pages have the ‘meeting-notes’ label link in the bottom right corner. If I select the ‘meeting-notes’ link on the new page, it only shows the original 4 meeting notes.


It seems that something has changed after the first 4 meeting notes that prevents subsequent meeting notes form being listed on the meeting notes page. What is interesting is that if add a new action item on one of the missing meeting notes, the action item does appear on the list of open action items at the top of the Meeting Notes page

I have confirmed that the issue is occurring in other Confluence Spaces. Something happened to our site after 09/24 that  is causing the Meeting Notes page to not list new meeting notes.

I'm having the same issue! It's showing 5 in the report view and I have 10 in the page hierarchical view. Worse the 5 that are showing are random - it's some old, some new, some in the middle. So I don't have a particular date to say "something changed here". :(

I am having the same issue now. Did you ever get a resolution? Confluence Version 5.8.6 Build Number 5984

I had the same issue - 4 meetings tagged with label "meeting-notes", only 2 would show up. In fact, you could go to one of the missing meeting note pages, click the label, and get a list of tagged pages showing only the 2 (meaning missing the page I navigated from). Crazy right? So I went to the cog in the upper right, selected General Configuration, and selected Content Indexing from the Administration portion of the menu on the left. I clicked the Rebuild button and now all 4 of my meetings show up. Problem solved, here at least. Hope this helps others... Cheers!
