Pulling the Last Modified Date and User of a page in another page

Is there any way, I can pull the Last Modified Date and User name who edited the page on to another page? Let's say, I have 2 pages, Page-A and Page-B.

Page-A has content and Page-B has a table with tracking information.

When a user changes the content of Page-A, then I would like to track the information such as Username and Last Modified Date (of Page-A) in 2 separate columns of a table on Page-B.

Please share if it is possible through Macro or if there is any other workaround.

Hi Jasmeet!

Confluence came with a Macro called "Recently Updated" which you can utilize. I haven't found a way to form a table yet, but at least it will keep you updated.

Here's my example:

  1. I added PAGE-A and PAGE-B, and inside PAGE-B i added the Recently Updated Macro.

  2. I can edit the macro to configure it to my liking, such as only monitoring updates from specific author(s), specific space(s), label(s), and other configurations as well.

  3. Page-B will show updates according to your configuration:

  4. You can also click the view change link to see what actually changed:

  5. And when I edit it with another user, it will be shown separately and you can compare them both by clicking the view change again

I hope my explanation can help in some ways, and I wish you a good day!

Thanks for the solution! I will try your reco this week. Thanks again!

No worries Jasmeet!

By the way, if this solution helps, do you mind accepting the answer so other users with similar situation can find this? laugh Thank you!

I will do it this week for sure!! smile

The (commercial) projectdoc Toolbox provides a macro to render changelogs. You can control the information to be rendered and there is a simple filter. Of course you can specify the page in which changes you are interested in. The changes are rendered in a table.

For more information you may have a look at the documentation page of the Change Log Macro. There you'll find screenshots of the macro editor and the rendered result.

The add-on is only available for on-premise Confluence.

Biased alert: I am one of the authors of this add-on. smile
