The space directory

  5. Complete your mission

The space directory won't let you look up ET in the intergalactic phone book, but it will let you see and filter all the spaces in your Confluence site. Spaces are places to collect pages with a common theme – you can create as many spaces as you like – and you can find them all in the space directory.

Here are some tasks to get you comfortable using the space directory:

  1. Visit the space directory – To get to the space directory, choose Spaces > Space directory in the Confluence header.
  2. Favourite a space or three – Click the star to the right of a space. It doesn't matter if it's not really a favourite; you can remove the star later.
  3. Choose space categories – Once you're there, you'll see a list of all the spaces in your Confluence site. Choose the 'favourites category on the left to see only favourite spaces. Then choose all spaces again.
  4. Filter the list of spaces – Type part of a space name in the Filter field at the top right. That'll quickly narrow down the list of spaces if there are a lot of them.

You can also categorise spaces with labels you create yourself. We're not going to cover that here, but, if you'd like to know more, you can check out Using Labels to Categorise Spaces.

Understanding and using the space directory will make it much easier to find pages and blog posts that are relevant to you.

You're ready to impress those new recruits with your knowledge of Confluence's space directory; now it's time to sneak a peek at the sidebar.
