"Comment internally" in Confluence

Preetam I'm New Here Dec 12, 2019

Is it possible to post "comments internally" in Confluence so that external users who have access to the Space won't be able to view internal comments?

Hi @Preetam

Unfortunately this feature is supported natively in Confluence. Neither is Atlassian going to implement it in near future. Refer to CONFSERVER-2535 for more details.

However, you may want to try using this macro - HideElements.

Hope this does the job for you!
