Sending a full confluence page in an email

Hi,

I would like to send the content of a Confluence 4.1 page in an email.

The Share button only sends a link on the page. This is a problem for users that are not connected to the internal network when they receive the mail.

Is there a simple way to do that, or shall I change the email template in the .jar archive?

Thanks

Stéphane

Hi Stéphane Genin,

We've just released the new version of Share Attachments and Pages, which lets you share a link to any page without log in, add it to an email, social networks, etc. You can also use that public link to embed the content of the page within an iframe for example.

Check it out and send us feedback!

This is not a solution to the question. He wants to put the content of the page in the body of an email and send the email. 

I second Justin. I installed this hoping that the contents of the email would be the body. A bit misleading but easily mistaken maybe. Let me know if you r product does this.

Thanks,

Hi @Ryan Helms,

Sorry If my answer was misleading. Our product doesn't insert the content of the page in the email. It creates a public link that allows the receiver to access to the content. However, you could use that link to embed an iframe within the email, although email clients not always accept iframes. Regards

Thanks for the explanation Gorka. I appreciate that.

I used to have an email function in my confluence page. This function emails the page to me, which is supposed to be the answer to Stéphane Genin's question. But now in my new company, my confluence doesn't have this and I do not know how to configure it to have the email function.

I used Reporting and comala workflows to send the content of a page via email to a DL

 

Dana, can you elaborate on this?  I'm trying to find a way of sending a status report (Confluence page) to stakeholders that aren't in Confluence.  PDF isn't an option because it's ugly and I want the content in the email rather than as an attachment or link.

Hi Marc,

With Comala Workflows, you can send an email with your custom content using triggers i.e., whenever a specific event happens, for example, when a page is approved. 

In the following example, when the page is approved and transitions to the Published state, an email is sent to the approver user. The content of the email is wiki markup, so you can add a workflow report or any other content you want.

{workflow:name=Simple approval workflow}
{state:Draft|approved=Published}
{approval:Review}
{state}
{state:Published}
{state}
{trigger:pageapproved|approval=Review|partial=true}
{send-email:user=@user@|subject=Document approved}
Thank you for approving @page@!
{workflowreport:type=states}
{send-email}
{trigger}
{workflow}

You can see the email I received when I approved the "Dummy" page:

Hope this helps!

No such feature in Confluence.

I googled a bit and found the earliest request of the feture back in 2004.

Moreover, you can vote for the feature here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-22869

You could export the page as a PDF and then email it.

You might want to check out the SSL Post Documentation Encryption add-on for Confluence.

The SSLPost Document Encryption plugin enables you to encrypt a Confluence page and/or any attachments and then send them securely to any recipient.

Hi Matt,

Thanks for your answer, but this plugin is too complicated for my users needs. What they want is the current Share action, that would sends an HTML email containing the whole Confluence page (same page than the one they receive when they're notified of modifications on a page).

Stéphane

this functionality already exists in confluence when a change is made and an email is sent to the watchers.  We would like access to be able to send the same email that confluence sends when a change is made.

How do we get access to that functionality?
