I'm trying to include page in another using the above mentioned macro, but Confluence is really, I mean really bad at finding it by the title. Problem comes, most likely, from the fact that I have multiple pages with the same name that differs only with date suffix. E.g. i have:

Page Title 2023-07-01

Page Title 2023-07-10

Page Title 2023-07-20

etc. If I paste into "Page to include" field "Page Title 2023-07-XX" every now and then Confluences doesn't suggest the actual page I'm looking for but bunch of it's "cousins" from different days. 

Can I somehow force macro to include this one page I'm interested in?

@Tomasz Kociemba Welcome to the Atlassian community

There is not a way to force it to what you want.  You will have to search each time you add the macro.  If you are using the same macro setting over and over again.  You should be able to copy the macro once you have it configured and just paste that on to the other pages.

Hello @Brant Schroeder , I find it hard to accept the answer, cause it's not relevant to the question I asked. 

I don't mind searching each time I use the macro. The problem I described is that search box doesn't give me the result I look for due to multiple pages with similar name in my space. Unfortunately, macro doesn't accept specific URL which would solve my issue. 

I over time I learned that giving confluence some time (up to few day) usually make it "click" and suddenly page I search for shows up, but it's quite random.

@Tomasz Kociemba If it is a newly created page and you have a large instance it will take a little time for it to index but should not be a few days.  You should be able to paste in the proper page name and it should come up once it indexes.
