Using Confluence for Policies and Procedures?

Is there a way to have a space with index and have a template for using confluence to publish our company policies and procedures? that way either the navigation tree and/or something on the main page shows policy number and you can print/email that policy if needed and it have a header with the policy number, policy title last revised date etc?

Can someone from the Atlassian team answer this question?

Create the policy and procedure pages and name them with the corresponding index name.  Put a table on each of those pages with the appropriate high level information for that policy or procedure. For each of this pages you want grouped in a separate table add a label.  The label must be the same for all of these pages.  Perhaps a label "policy" for the policy pages and a label "procedures" for the procedure pages.  Or, make all the labels the same if you want to show them all then just use the same label for all.  Then use the page properties macro on another page and provide the label and other information.  You can also add the page properties to the table filter and charts macro (an app purchase) for advanced filtering and sorting.  Hope this helps.  

Here is a link to the page properties macro:

I know this is old, but I've run into the exact same issue. Any resolution?

I have the same question.

You could hire a developer to make a macro that could do this. But if you're okay with a more manual option then you can use the Page Policies macro.

We do this for our Standard Operating Procedures.

Sections are numbered starting with 1000 each new section increments by one thousand, and all sub-items are incremented by one. The second digit could specify a region (0=global,1=North America, 2=South and Central America, ...)

Then you could put a Page Report macro on the main Standard Operating Procedure page, and sort by the Document ID.

Example from our Physical Security team:

  • General Guidance PS-0001
    • General Guidance addendum PS-0001a
  • Geophysical PS-1000
    • Earthquake PS-1001
    • Earthquake PS-1101
    • Hurricane PS-1002
  • Utilities PS-2000
    • Power Outage PS-2001
  • ...

We're a bit slow to answer this, but we supply a Confluence template. See:
