Page editing status


Is there a plugin/macro/other tweaks to show page editing status?

Here's the usage case:

When I edit a page, I want other people know that I am editing that particular page so they don't mess around editing the same page at the same time. Let me finish editing first.

Probably using a live macro on the space home directory, or some plugins showing user activity?

Details can be found here.

I hope thst helps!


Basically if someone edit and save a page first than other user, the other user will see an error message showing where such user has changed the page.

I just found these feature requests related to this question:




Thanks for the info guys!

Maybe my Confluence is too fresh so I haven't seen that message :)
