Use page macros in Confluence to create and organize dynamic content and add labels to quickly organize it.
In Confluence, you can add macros to a page to add extra functionality or include dynamic content. Macros are amazing! 🤯
For example, you can use the:
- Attachments macro to list files attached to a page
- Tip macro to visually distinguish text on the page that is meant to be a tip to users
- Expand macro to hide content and then reveal it when user's tap/click to learn more
- Code Block macro to enter neatly formatted code snippets
- Excerpt macro to add a short description to a page
- Include Excerpt macro to include the excerpt from another page
These are just some of the ways macros enhance your writing, and this list doesn't even go into the macros available on Atlassian Marketplace. What's great about macros is you can add extra functionality or dynamic content to your documentation without the need to code. This means you won't need to customize your content transformation processes to render content dynamically. As the writer, you're in full creative control.

Labels are key words you can add to your documentation pages to make them easier to group and find. As an example, you could assign the label administrator to all pages with content written for administrators. Then, you can browse all pages with that label, display a list of pages with that label using a macro, or search based on the label. Labels are great for working with documentation internally and for providing users a way to view and filter related pages.
