Using Glossary for Confluence Cloud

Good morning from Israel. I have already established a company glossary and it works really well. the only issue i have is - i am trying make the words already defined in the glossary pop when i am writing an article in the system. is there any way to do that?


thank you 



I am not aware of any functionality as you describe. What you can do instead is for your glossary pages (one page per term / expression) put the content inside the Excerpt macro. Then on pages referencing a term / expression you can use the macro Excerpt Include to display the corresponding text. We use this for definitions in governing documents.

Hi @Shirel Cohen , if you are looking to bring your Enterprise Glossary to the next level try Smart Terms for Confluence !
