Is there a Atlassian Macro that checks for and flags possibly out-of-date content? Edited

Wiki pages often stay current for vey short time periods and are left to intermingle with current and important pages. This is not unusual in corporations today and is a current problem being addressed across all industries. 

So... has Atlassian produced a Content Management answer yet and if so, is the solution backward compatible? In my case, my company has thousands of user. We use the 2015 version 5.10.8.
