Turns Confluence Cloud into an engaging communication tool by highlighting featured blogposts in an attractive visual news page

Highlight important information & recognise people

Mark any blogpost as featured

Restrict who can feature blogposts

Insert a 'Profile Picture' on your featured blogpost, and it will be tagged as 'People'. Insert a 'Warning Panel' on your featured blogpost, and it will be tagged as 'Important'. Everything else will appear as 'News'.

Featured blogposts are independently tagged with a custom property rather than labels

You can restrict who can feature blogposts so that the News page only focuses on the most important messages or company news

Great app, the latest update is fantastic. I'd love to see some features around being able to embed this in other confluence pages or certain tiles of it to be added to individual pages.

Thanks for the feedback, Stephen. With this free "lite" version of News Board, I had been holding off adding macro support while waiting for the new editor to settle in. However, I'm open to adding this to the roadmap. It would be great to understand more about how you think the macro would work. If you have time, please email your requirements to me at james.dellow@chieftech.com.au or add some feedback to the Atlassian community here.
