Status on confluence page to indicate an update


In my previous role, whenever a confluence page was updated there would be an area at the top of the page indicating who updated the page and what was updated.

How do I activate this function on my team's confluence page?

HI @Wayne Grant , and welcome to the community.

Can you tell us a bit more about how it was in your previous role, and was Confluence on Cloud too? Confluence has nothing similar built-in by default, but there are a few ways to achieve a similar outcome. 

Do you recognize if it had to be updated manually, or was the area's content generated automatically?


If you want to read out the data attached to a Confluence page by design (see the above screenshot), I found something on the Atlassian Marketplace that could be interesting. You can add the change history table to a page with SoftComply Change History

Maybe you used a different document management app before? Or was it a simple table that had to be updated manually (with some macros, user mention, text, etc.)

Best, Max

Hi Max,

I don't know if Confluence was On-Premise or Cloud hosted. However, the updates were generated automatically at the top of the document.


Based on your response that it is technically possible, my previous company would have a team with the skill set to create a bespoke content area and host Confluence on its internal servers.

Thanks much.
