Sync Project Status Macro to Dashboard

I have created a Dashboard on my main Confluence Page where I would like to reflect current Status for each project.  I then have subpages where I have individual Project Status Reports.  Each Status Report has 'Status Macros' of Red/Yellow/Green.  I want to automatically reflect each Status Macro from these individual Project Status Report to the main Dashboard.  I haven't been able to find the how or any information on doing this.  Help?

Hey, what's a project for you? Jira Project, or Confluence space?

There are few ideas came into my mind reading this:

Include page macro - free

With this, you can include subpages to the parent, and show all the subpages.

Excerpt macro - free

Similarly to Include page, add macros on the subpages name Excerpt, and include Excerpt on the parent page for all the subpages.

Page properties macro - free

Add page properties table on your subpages, and page properties report on the top page. i thinks this is the nicest solution :)

Advanced Content Navigator - cheap 

With this macro you can manage page statuses and handle confluence pages like jira issues, and manage statuses real-time, without editing the page. Also it can do lot more (show unread and changed pages, table of contents, and build custom dashboards) Check it out on the marketplace!

Good luck,


Thank you so much for taking time to answer my question!  I am thinking that Page  Properties might work. 

Here's my example.  Project 1 is the Status Report that will be completed by Project Lead each week and exists on a confluence page.  I want to take the Status (Green / Yellow / Red) from the key areas and have them automatically update to the main Dashboard that is on a different page of Confluence.ProgramDashboardExample.PNG

That looks great! :)

If you change your mind to use page statuses for reporting, give ACNC a try! :)

Hi @brooke_clem,

Are your projects stored in Jira? If yes, you could easily create status pages in Confluence for tracking you projects by using the macros offered by our Great Gadgets app.   


This app offers a complete set of macros for tracking your projects in effective way. Watch this video:

To make a better idea about what you can track with this app, have a look over the articles from our blog, especially this one which explain how to track individual projects as well as the status at the global level: How to track multi-team or scaled-agile projects (such as SAFe®) in Jira with Great Gadgets app. The article is for Jira, but the same gadgets/charts exist in the Confluence app. 

I hope this helps. 

Thank you,

Danut Manda

Thank you so much for taking time to answer my question.  We are using Jira for our development ticketing system, but I'll take a look at these videos to see how I might pull in Jira data to our Confluence page.  It would be a nice addition!
