Add a "Read" or "Acknowledged" button in addition to or in place of "Like" - Confluence


We use the "Like" button on our Wiki by Confluence but not in all cases do we really "Like" the content as developers but need to acknowledge the article as read.  We would like to let the stakeholders or contributors know the article was READ and not just sitting there ignored.  We need an indicator to let them know we have read it and will take it for action per se.  Ideas are to somehow rename "Like" to "Read" or if there is any way to add functionality such as a "Read" link to get a list of all those that have read the document for accountability.  In addition consider a thumbs up/down and voting features but our main goal is to find out  away to let people know it's read.

You could probably do this with the Page Approval or Comala Workflows add-ons. Another option would be to try and do something with a user macro. Stephen Deutsch has a user maco that does something like this that you might be able to tweak to your own needs.

Another use case is a CxO or team leader posts a document for all to read. Need a way to track who read it, i.e. signature type system or view those that read it.
