Why does "Watches" not show watched topics and questions in Confluence Questions?

The view "Watches" in Confluence shows only spaces and pages that I watch. Topics and questions from Confluence Questions are not included. Is that a missing feature?

Sorry Robert, I forgot all about Watch in the profile menu! There is a feature request for this here https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CQ-412. Feel free to vote / comment on it.

Hi Robert, The Watch button in Confluence relates specifically to the space you are currently viewing. To watch topics and questions you need to be in Confluence Questions itself as questions live outside of spaces.

Hope this helps clarify.

I think there is a misunderstanding here. I was referring to the dialog "Watches" that you can invoke from the menu (with other menu items like Profile, Tasks, Favorites, Drafts, Settings, etc).

We are currently evaluating CQ and users keep asking me about a list of things that they are currently watching. They specifially want to see a list of their watched questions and Topics from Confluence Questions, and I don't see a way that this is possible.
