You can start discussing any part of a Confluence page by inserting a new talk discussion. To do that, please follow the steps below:
- Open the page where you want to start a discussion and enter the Edit mode.
- Click where you want to add a comment and select Talk from the Insert menu.
In the opened Insert Macro Talk form, enter your comment in the Comment field.
You can use wiki markup to format the entered text, please see this page for more info.
If you want to add a Confluence user or users as page watchers, put the @ symbol and start typing their names. You will be prompted to choose the name from the drop-down list. Page watchers receive a notification about creation of the talk and get updates when new replies are added.
- Click Insert. The Talk icon will appear on the page.
- Click Save to return to the View mode. You will see the Talk icon
Your comment with the creation date and time is now posted on the page. It is visible to other Confluence users who can access this page.
All users mentioned in the talk will get both a Workbox (starting from Confluence 4.3.3) and an email notification about a new discussion. You will get Workbox and email notifications about new comments posted in the discussion, if the Autowatch option is enabled in your Confluence user profile.
