Finding a mention that is in a comment on a page

After getting a notification for a mention in a comment I
 am referred to the confluence page where the mention was but in a large document it is hard to find the specific comment.  Anybody have a trick to find it?

Hi @Douglas Martin ,

We can suggest a workaround with the help of the Talk Report feature in our Talk - Advanced Inline Comments for Confluence app.

Talk Report allows overviewing comments made on a specific page and/or space and see in it the following data:

  • Name of a page where an inline comment/suggestion was created
  • Link to an inline comment/suggestion
  • Initial comment/suggestion
  • Priority of an inline comment/suggestion
  • Status (open, resolved, archived)
  • Discussion/suggestion author
  • Users mentioned in a discussion
  • Date when a talk was started
  • Date of talk resolution

A good case is to use this app with the Table Filter and Charts  app. With the combination of these apps, you can filter comments by a certain user, the priority of a comment (low, medium, or high), and its status(open, archived, or resolved). These filters can help you to see which comments may take your immediate reaction.

@Douglas Martin Once you are on the page there is no great way to do this other than searching through all the comments.  I believe on the email there is a reply button and if you click this it should take your right to the comment on the page.
