The labels feature in Confluence allows you to describe the content of your page using descriptive terminologies the allow users to quickly understand the subject of your page. Additionally, adding labels to your pages enable confluence to systematically aggregate your information into pages of similarly-labeled resources.

For example, if you created a page of instructions on how to perform a cataloging function in Aleph, you could add the labels "cataloging" and "Aleph". Now, any documentation pages that aggregate either cataloging-related content or Aleph-related content would include your newly-labeled content.

You can find a list of all current labels in Confluence at the following documentation page.


How to add labels to a page

  1. Navigate to the page you wish to label
  2. Select the Labels icon at the bottom right of the screen. If you are editing a page, the Labels icon will appear at the top of the editing screen.




  3. Begin typing the text of the label you wish to add. A dropdown of auto-completion suggestions will appear.
  4. Select the option that best describes your content and click the Add button.

    Please try to use labels that have already been generated on Confluence. Adding additional terms can cause descriptive conflict due to inconsistencies (spelling, capitalization, pluralization, etc.).

  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for all needed tags.
  6. Once finished, click the Close option.
