Handy Page Diff is a Confluence augmentation that allows you to quickly see what changes were made on the page.
This feature is available starting from Handy Macros 1.3.0.
When you need to review a frequently edited page you cannot quickly see how many people have edited your page and how many times they did this. You need to see the page history between the time you last visited this page and the current time. This is quite annoying. With the Handy Page Diff you can quickly review the page since your last visit.
Once Handy Macros for Confluence is installed by your Confluence administrator it starts to track your page visits. When you visit any page more than one time, you will see the summary of all changes made to this page between your visits.
The icon indicates the count of changes (page edits) on the page since your last visit. To see information about the people that made these changes, hover over the icon.
Just click the icon with the number of changes made to open the default Confluence page diff showing differences between the current page revision and the revision you saw last time.
To acknowledge the made changes, click the tick icon.
The tick icon ("Acknowledge" button since Handy Macros 1.7.0) is also available directly on the page diff that you open by clicking the button with count of changes.
Next time when you visit this page you will see only the changes made after your last acknowledgement.
You can disable the Handy Page Diff feature if you do not need it:
The macro can be enabled or disabled on the instance level in the Confluence Administrator console.
