To have information about a page and its content like the title, creator, creation date and content type – basically, metadata – can significantly improve your content management capabilities. If you can effectively manage your Confluence metadata, you are one step closer to building a robust content platform that is user-friendly and accessible. As an admin, success doesn’t only mean that users feel more encouraged to use Confluence, it also means your job doesn’t constantly feel like a hassle anymore.
Revitalize your Confluence site, organize pages, and maximize usability using our metadata management tool in the Atlassian marketplace, Metadata for Confluence app!
If your clients, like ours, manage multiple projects at a time, then we understand how important it is to keep tabs on each project and have all the critical information readily available when needed. However, we also understand that there are several limitations to Confluence; inaccurate user-generated labels will jumble up content, reducing searchability.
The same approach used in creating well-managed product catalogs can be applied here. Simply add predefined metadata fields like project manager, launch date, budget, and technology to project pages to create a comprehensive portfolio homepage. The result? Structured project management reporting pages. It helps remove silos, avoids competing priorities, provides better resources, and ensures budget is allocated effectively. Most importantly, it keeps everyone on the same page.
The solution doesn’t only improve navigation of content on Confluence, but it also helps admins deliver accurate search results to their users. Admins can even pair it with Confluence’s Roadmap Planner macro to capture cross-departmental collaboration initiatives, giving them greater transparency to the reporting. They have the possibility to create reports by combining filters of metadata's according to their needs.
💡Pro Tip: For consistency, we recommend you create a template for specific content types with predefined metadata fields. So, every time a user creates a new page, they’ll have the metadata fields automatically populated within the page.
Our metadata app is integrated into our Process Management Suite for Confluence, enabling you to easily transform how your organization manages business processes and documentation using Confluence’s powerful wiki features. As an admin, it’s critical to maintain information freshness, especially for quality assurance, workflow management, and company guidelines. Information like process types and associated functions can save a lot of time when on-boarding new hires. One of the most loved capabilities of the Metadata for Confluence is the power to create a quality management system. You can create a process report based on your needs by filtering employee location, role, process type and process owner. Easy like that!
