Featured add-on: Multiexcerpt Plugin – Select multiple excerpts across a page or across different spaces and recombine them to aggregate your content the way you want.
You want to display content from one page onto another page? Confluence makes that easy. But what if you’re a super-user and want to pull together excerpts from multiple pages or multiple excerpts from a single page?
The Multiexcerpt Plugin, made by Artemis Software, is built for Confluence super-users like you. The add-on lets you aggregate excerpts from as many sources as you want and then allows you to arrange them in a way that displays the content however you want. There’s even a drag-and-drop option built in, so you can include images and screenshots with one click.
How might you use Multiexcerpt? That’s limited only by the needs of your work and the scope of your imagination. Here are a few ways users have implemented Multiexcerpt to optimize their work.
Some teams use Multiexcerpt to enhance user documentation. For instance, if a user doesn’t understand a certain term, they can hover over that term and a definition from the glossary – an excerpt – will pop up. You could use in-page user documentation in any situation where users might otherwise have to browse through many pages searching for a particular reference.
Other teams use Multiexcerpt to create and manage project dashboards, so users can quickly see information from multiple projects and pages. The latest Multiexcerpt release includes a caching feature that reduces load times, making excerpt-heavy pages like dashboards more user friendly.
