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:
- Visit the space directory – To get to the space directory, choose Spaces > Space directory in the Confluence header.
- Choose the spaces you'll use the most – No doubt there'll be a space or two that you'll use on a regular basis. Click the star to the right of a space to make it appear under My Spaces on the dashboard.
- Choose space categories – Once you're there, you'll see a list of all the spaces in your Confluence site. Choose the 'My Spaces' category on the left to see only the spaces you marked with a star. Then choose all spaces again.
- 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 categorize 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 Use Labels to Categorize Spaces.
Understanding and using the space directory will make it much easier to find pages and blog posts that are relevant to you.
