Add a filter to Confluence Recently Updated Dashboard?

So we have a user that makes automated posts, which is polluting the Confluence dashboard's Recently Updated macro.

I know that the non-dashboard version of the RU macro can have a filter applied to it that can filter out that one user, but we want to keep using the dashboard version, a lot of users use the different tabs in it.

So is there a way to apply a similar author filter to the RU Dashboard macro? Or would I have to completely restructure how the dashboard looks to build some kind of equivalent?

Hey Nick,

There's an idea in this tread that match the creteria you mentioned, I tried to play around locally using the source code macro to add manually a parameter "!user" to exclude a single user, but it didn't worked :(.

Another suggestion would be for you to raise a feature request.

Hope it helps.

Thanks and Regards,

I had seen that thread, I was hoping there'd be a non User Macro way for me to get the functionality, but it looks like that's my short-term alternative. Guess it's time for me to brush up on my macro construction!

Thank you for the attempt and the insight!
