Recently Updated Dashboard macro - how can I change the date parameters?


Non-technical person here. I've created a blog page for my team where I want to primarily show the following on Confluence pages for my team only. A lot of information is updated regularly but it isn't really shared and there could be a lot of pages/info that the team don't know about.

Space: xxxx or Label: yyyy (at the moment it seems to use both space and label - not or)

Date Created or modified - in the last 30 days (by contributor or modifier)

Although the Dashboard states Recently Updated - Confluence has it's own ideas of what is recent (at the moment going back about 1 year and I only want 30 days).

I've tried a few other macros but none give me what I want.

I would also like to include the Display Excerpts - Simple

I would like the ability to also pick up any child pages under the Space or Label nominated.

Thanks Jewels

Hello Julie,

The  recently updated dashboard macro does not have the parameter to filter by last modified date or date range natively.

Having this in mind, I have created this feature request, for our development awareness and linked this post as a reference:

Indeed, the Space and Labels works as and, not as OR in this case.

Regarding the ability to include/display child pages and display excerpts, you mean inside the recently updated dashboard as well or it would be a different use case?

If your use case is to display only the links for the pages as a page tree link under a specific parent page in your page, it is possible to use the children display macro for that.

If we didn't get the idea right, would you mind sharing more details on your use case?
