@sahluwalia Let me first explain why Headings in an excerpt or include macro don't populate in the ToC on a page the macro is being used on.


Since the excerpt/include macros are mirroring the detail from the parent page, it is not bringing over the underlying formatting from that page - which means that the ToC cannot pick up the content as a heading that should be included in the child page's ToC.

Now that you know, you can vote for this existing feature request using this link.

Hope this helps.

Ah, make sense. Thanks for letting me know. I'll vote for this as this would be handy.

I'd be inclined to call this a bug; It's something that had always worked in confluence server, so why not cloud?

In-fact it works even on-cloud until you "upgrade" to the new editor on your page.

I agree; The loss of this old feature is certainly a regression from a user perspective.
