Display who is editing page right now

Is there a way to display on the page that page is being edited and by which user via macro or something else?

If you want to view that information while viewing the page, you would need to create your own user macro that runs custom javascript on the page.

But as @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ suggests, seems like a lot of effort that won't provide a lot of detail to the user. The user could always just edit the page to see who is editing, and the close out when they are done. Much easier and less time to implement a procedure than develop a macro.

I see, thx for reply

Ok, a step back.  Why?  What would this tell the user viewing it that would cause them to change what they are doing?

Hi @Igor Zhabrovsky , when collaborative editing is enabled and you are in Edit mode on a page, you can see who's currently editing the page by the avatars in the above right corner. Or would you like to see this when you're viewing the page?

Yes, i would like to see it when viewing page
