Multiple people updating a page, different color for each user

Hi, is there away to simulate the Track Changes that word has? For example, if we have 3 people making updates to 1 document/page, can the individual peoples contributions automatically be created in a different color?

Or any other thoughts on how to best track changes visualy on the page (not going to version control)?

Hi there Simon, sadly in Confluence there is no such feature, it has one form of file comparison only (Red = content deletions, Green = additions, Blue = changes).

Considering that, there's not many options available. Perhaps you could write a plugin to create this functionality, or open a request for the Confluence developers in the Confluence project at

There's this page, which gives a comparison of various diffing functionality available in wiki products:
