When editing , select from the toolbar
Find the item to be inserted and select it
You can also type / on the page to bring up the same list you'd see by selecting from the toolbar.
To edit the Recently Updated macro:
Select the macro placeholder. The floating toolbar appears.
Select Edit. The right panel opens.
Modify the parameters. Your changes are saved as you go.
Resume editing the page, and the panel closes.
Parameters are options that you can set to control the content or format of the macro output.
If the parameter name used in Confluence Cloud storage format or wikimarkup is different than the label used when inserting macros using the browser or the slash command, it will be listed below in brackets (example).
Author(s) by username
None specified. That is, display all content
Filter the results by author. The macro will display only the pages etc which were last modified by the author(s) you specify here.
That is, the space which contains the page on which the macro is used
This parameter allows you to filter content by space. The macro will display only the pages etc which belong to the space(s) you specify here.
When specifying a personal space, remember to use the tilde (~) sign in front of the username, such as ~jbloggs or ~firstname.lastname@example.org.
None specified i.e. display all content
Filter the results by label. The macro will display only the pages etc which are tagged with the label(s) you specify here.
You can specify one or more label values, separated by a comma or a space.
The labels parameter only applies to the page and blog content types.
Width of Table
Specify the width of the macro display, as a percentage of the window width.
Include these Content Types Only
This parameter allows you to filter content by content type. The macro will display only the content of the type you specify here.
To exclude content of a given content type, put a minus sign (-) immediately in front of that content type. For example: If you specify a content type of -blogpost you will get pages and all other content except for blog posts.
Maximum Number of Results
Specify the maximum number of results to be displayed. If this parameter is omitted, then a maximum of 15 results are displayed. The theoretical maximum value that this parameter can accept is 2 to the power of 31, minus 1 (or 2147483647), though this has been limited to 200 in the code, for performance reasons. More details are here.
Choose the appearance of this macro:
Show User Profile Pictures
Specify showProfilePic=true to display the profile pictures of the users who updated the content.
Hide Title (hideHeading)
Determines whether the macro hides or displays the text 'Recently Updated' as a title above the list of content. Only available in wikimarkup and storage format.
Wiki markup example
Wiki markup is only supported in the legacy editor.
Wiki markup is useful when you need to add a macro outside the editor, for example as custom content in the sidebar, header or footer of a space.
Macro name: recently-updated
Macro body: None.
The Recently Updated Dashboard macro is similar to this macro but is intended for display on the Confluence dashboard.
