Is it possible to tag sentences or paragraphs, not just whole pages? Do any apps support that?

We are using a Confluence space to store notes from customer interviews. We are able to tag the notes at a page level.

We would like to tag the notes at a sentence or paragraph level because every time our product managers go back to assemble evidence from our customer interviews, they have to read through the entire interview. It would be great if they could just go directly to the specific sentence or paragraph.

Is that a function which supported? Is there an app in the Confluence app store which would support that functionality?

Thank you for your help!

Hello @Emily Alter !

I understand that your use case needs the ability to partially tag content within your pages. What I can tell you is that Confluence does not support this natively.

Further, looking a the marketplace, I could not find anything that works in a similar fashion.

The closes to that that I could think of is our feature to create inline comments. Here, take a look in our documentation about those:


When inline comments are created, that specific part of the text will be highlighted and the users can click on it to check what was the comment about.


Hope this shines some light into your situation, Emily! Looking forward to your reply.

Thank you, @Diego ! Good to know!

We'd love to see this functionality - is there any update here?
