What content type do I specify to get Confluence Questions to appear in the Recently Updated macro?

We use the Recently Updated macro on our dashboard and I want to include Questions in it. We currently have it so that it filters only for pages, comments, and blog posts. I noticed that when I remove all filters the questions show up but I can't figure out what content type I need to enter to get Confluence Questions to appear - I tried question, questions, confluencequestions, confluence-questions, et al.

Anybody know?

I don't think Atlassian has added this functionality in the RU macro, but meantime I am using the "Content by Label" macro to display all questions in a page. In the settings I am filtering out all content EXCEPT Questions. I can state what kind of labels I want to list questions for.

Under "Include this content type only" I put "-page -blogpost -attachment -news". Minus means exclude.

However, this does not give you the most recent questions... You can try out the same approach also on he RU macro.

Thanks, I didn't think to use the minus operator and this works as intended in the RU macro. For my purposes I just wanted to filter out attachments from appearing in the feed so I was able to do that (before I was just specifying all types except attachments).

It looks like this works if you want a recently updated with JUST questions. Can you get Questions AND the regular content in the newsfeed? Thanks!
