Email Diff Page with Confluence 4.3

Everytime there is a change on a confluence page all the watchers are getting the email with the contents of the whole page.

Is it possible to configure confluence to only send the diff change only?

In JIRA users only get emails with the changes that users make on the fields rather than the whole issue fields.

Is this possible in confluence

Hi Louis, I think this can be done by navigating to your Profile (Clicking your name on top right >> Profile >> Settings) and after that check Show Changed Contents. By right, it should only send the differences between current and previous version. For more information please refer to the following documentation. Hope it helps!

Is there a way to force this configuration to all users?

Based on this.

Option: Do you want your notifications to include details of the changes made to the content?

  • If you do not select this option, your notifications will include the full content of the page.
  • If you do select this option, your notifications will include the full content of the page as well as a list of the differences between the current and previous versions of the page. SeePage History and Page Comparison Views.

I only want to get the diff and not the full content since is a big page.
