The Document Library is the central hub to view all documents in a space. It allows you and your readers to easily overview and access the content of your documents.

In the Document Library, you can:

  • Browse through all documents in the space in either a visual grid view or a list view

  • Search documents by title

  • Filter documents by labels

  • Sort documents by title or recently created

Document Cards

For each of the documents in the space, you will see a Document Card. On each card, you can see: 

  • The document title

  • The creator's user icon, along with the document creation date

You can read the documents by clicking on the read icon on the individual document cards.

Scroll Document List Macro

Embed the Scroll Document List macro on any page in Confluence to show your document library on dedicated pages in your Confluence space.

The Scroll Document List macro displays a simplified and read-only view of all or selected documents from your Document Library. Place it in central locations like a space overview page to increase visibility and engagement with your documents.
